Boë Superior Gin Review

Boe Superior Gin Welcome to Day 16 of #GinMonth as I review Boe Superior Gin.

A top quality gin named for Franz de la Boë, who created gin in 1658 as a medicine. He claimed it would cure "one third of all diseases".

Nice stuff but certainly not my favourite thus far, finding it difficult to pick at the moment.

Go try one, pop on over to Master of Malt and pick one up now.

Tasting Notes & Details


(straight) Initially this is very junipery and earthy/woodland like, has that smell of walking through a wet forrest, with damn leaves and bark, and occasional floral notes

(with tonic) sweet and floral, the earthy notes are gone and it's a lot more floral lavendar, marigolds now


(straight) wet bark and touches of mixed oriental spice along with juniper and marigolds

(with tonic) lemongrass and freshly squeezed lime juice with tropical mango and juniper creeping in.


(straight) touch of cinnamon spice

(with tonic) lovely and sweet.
