Tranquebar Colonial Gin - (70cl)£37.99
Tranquebar Colonial Gin is based on the 17th century recipe created by Jan de Willum, founder of the Danish East India Company, who distilled his genever-style gin in Amsterdam.
With new spices and ingredients arriving in Denmark from the Danish trading post at Tranquebar in India, Jan de Willum incorporated these into his recipe, including cinnamon, cardamom and nutmeg.
In homage to this, the recipe has now been recreated by Royal Dirkzwager Distillery in the Netherlands and it is bottled in Denmark.
Tasting notes: Warm, full-bodied flavor with a spicy touch of juniper, cardamom and cinnamon, a splash of darjeeling tea with fresh citrus notes. Much like a genever.
