City of London Distillery Rhubarb & Rose Gin
The City of London has a rich gin history. During the Gin Craze in the 18th century there was a gin distillery or gin shop in every street in the City benefiting from the spices and citrus fruits coming in to the port of London.When the Gin Craze ended, very few gin distilleries survived, and for nearly 200 years there wasn’t a single gin distillery in the City. That is until the City of London Distillery opened in 2012.
Released in February 2019, City of London Distillery Rhubarb and Rose is unlike any other rhubarb gin on the market, and is inspired by the British love affair with rhubarb and rose. This London Dry Gin uses plenty of fresh rhubarb and dried rose petals in both the pot and basket during distillation.
Nose: Fresh rhubarb notes, subtle sweet berry and pine.
Palate: Lemon peel with rhubarb and floral notes, and present juniper character.
Finish: Bittersweet, rosy finish.
