“Martin Miller’s Part Duex”

A redesign that let’s the gin speak for itself allowing you to become curious about Arctic Clarity.

Visual

Stands tall and proud still displaying Iceland and London’s flags. They seem to be flowing just a little more boastfully. The journey is clearly outlined in red allowing you to follow the voyage of greatness. Gin is imported through Kindred Spirits in Miami so this gin is a long ways from home. Design is much more simpler with the ingredients featured on the other side allowing safe passage.

Aroma

Just when you think things can’t get any better: They do. If you’ve been privy to Martin Miller’s London Dry Gin, Get ready for MM2.0.  There’s sort of a refinement here, that elevates your senses and smiles return.You get a little bit of juniper, but that is quickly pushed aside as you enjoy Florentine Iris, cassia bark, liquorice root, coriander, angelica(which is spelled anjelica on the bottle)

Entry

Soft with just enough balance to know it’s gin, just enough smoothness to know it’s magical.Again, Everything is blended together with a sort of softness clearly as a result of the quality of water.

Midpalate

Continues to be just as pleasant as our first acquaintance. Pleased to meet you, the pleasure’s all mine. Smile if you see a bar that has this because they know what they are doing.  If you don’t have a gin that satisfies your tastes, make your own. Slight burn that lets you know it’s alive, that quickly transitions itself into the Aftertaste.

Aftertaste

Gin still there letting you know all the wonders it has to offer. Tingling right down to our toes. Enough softness to make us drink more, enough comfort to know you’re home.

Final Thought: A spirit that belongs in any collection, I admire the high standards of perfection this gin has achieved.

YouTube Preview Image

“Martin Miller’s”

Given the time for explorer’s was just, Martin Miller’s westbourne strength doesn’t disappoint, it exceeds all expectations.As the story goes, in 1999, British entrepreneur and bon viveur Martin Miller and two friends set out to create the finest gin possible, no expense spared.

Visual

This gin tells a story, not only from the visuals but everything else in between. This is not a gimmick, this is an epic. All the legends are true.  Iceland’s and London’s Flag are displayed proudly, presenting you the best of both worlds.  A nice nautical map shows the journey from London to the promise land, charting the hard work that goes into making this gin. Beautiful Frosted glass on the side give you a glimpse into climate change: Cold, Dark, Beautiful.

Aroma

Extremely floral, like a bouquet of flowers, like walking into a green house with your own personal garden of hand selection.

Imagine the cleanest, purest pleasure  in a glass that allows you to take a whiff. This is Martin Miller’s Westbourne Strength. You really smell quality here, and you are lifted to a higher state of ecstasy. A little bit of everything is here, from vegetation and flowers to smiling flavors and sunshine. We are quite please to stop and smell the roses. Formulation number 7, combines juniper, orange and lemon peel, coriander, licorice, cinnamon, cassia, nutmeg, angelica, and orris root all there for you to smell and enjoy. Perfectly Balance, this exceeds are expectations and raises the bar.

Entry

If you haven’t drank the water yet you need to. It’s like drinking the nectar of the Gods. The definition of Smoothness. The water makes all the difference, and Martin Miller has taken quality to a whole new level. 1500 miles one way, and well worth it.

At their expense, they bring you one of the finest gins mankind has to offer. A gin worth dying for over and over again. It’s amazing that when you gather a first impression of this gin, Martin Miller is able to blend all the ingrediant together into a satisfaction that would make the Rolling Stones blush.

MidPalate

Consistent as the beginning, and pure bliss. I’m smiling as passions run wild through my mind. There are no sour points here, just the essence of gin taken beyond the norm. The quality shines through here as it is as pure as their intentions. It’s an all in one experience with all expenses payed.

Aftertaste

Clean. Pure. Satisfying. Satisfaction is all I can get from this gin. This is a gin everyone needs to experience once in their lifetime. Maybe twice. I’m confident that this will produce a new standard that all other distilleries will tip their hat too. There’s just a sort of happiness that allows you to reflect on your new found discovery. Marvelous.

Bulldog Gin Review

YouTube Preview Image

“British Bulldog”

Just like the name implies, Bulldog is tough and can stand it’s own against any gin, what’s different about it as a Kosher Gin and uses unique ingredients such as  poppy and dragon eye.

Visual

It would be pretty difficult to mistake a bulldog in your neighborhood, just as seeing this bottle would be. Nicely Rounded to be gripped at any angle which allows for simple pours. The collar which compliments control, makes this a bartenders dream come true. The bottle is black as night adventures, as the white on the bottle tells you Business in the front, Party in the back.

The cap is just fun to unscrew, try it a few times, and you will see what we mean.

Aroma

There’s a little bit of middle easter spice, it’s like you’re in the Sahara desert and you can smell the heat. And a bit of muskiness like a panther prowling its pray. The Night Stalker of Gin because it’s coming after all the other gins. Blue skys with relaxing fufillment let you stretch out on the beach, yacht or Caribbean cruise. I’m transported to the Rain forest to explore.

Entry

Very light kisses meet, almost elusive like you need to indulge yourself more just to make sure it’s real. This gin consumes you on entry, and starts off with not a bang, but a whisper. It’s enough to keep you curious and continue.

Midpalate

The enticing continues as you are whisked away with culture shock but it’s pleasant enough not to be shell shocked. I’m truly impressed and go for a second glass. Loyal to the entry and mid this journey continues.

Aftertaste

Bulldog Gin just beckons for you to drink more. Proud and guarding your movement, it welcome you to do just that. No heavy aftertaste and smooth enough to remind you of when you were in your 20′s. It’s youth in a bottle

Final Thought: Bulldog Gin just keeps getting better the more you drink it. With it’s rain forest roots to the modern club scene, Bulldog gin can party with the best of them.

Pro

  • A party every time you drink it
  • Initiates the club scene with hints of exploration
  • Keeps tradition and ingenuity in balance
  • I keep going back for more
  • I just can’t get enough

Cons

  • Might confuse some people

Jackelope and Jenny Gin Review

YouTube Preview Image

“Pear Street”

Everyone deserves a second shot and we wanted to see if there had been any improvements with Jackelope and Jenny Gin.

Visual

This time a white label is affixed onto the same bottle, with a wax dipped cork, that screams puzzle time. The string lends it’s self to cut through the opening and make way for the gin

Aroma

Even when you open the bottle you can smell the sweet scent of pears. It’s nice but then is slowly taken away by the background of the water.

Entry

Sweetness of pears coats your tongue as it transforms into a sort of Cinnamon. Like baked pears with Cinnamon and brown sugar.

Midpalate

Pears still seem to overpower the Juniper and reminds us more of a pear flavored vodka, than a pear flavored gin.

Aftertaste

Slight tingle at the end enough to number the mouth and lips, I feel like I was kissed by a Jackelope.

Final Thought: A slight Improvement over Jackelope Gin due to the mellowness of pears but there is still something missing.

Pros

  • Uses pear’s, one of my favorite fruit
  • Simple and Sweet
  • Heart’s in the right place
  • Non confrontational
  • Supports Colorado’s Camaraderie

Con

  • We were looking for more.

Jackelope Gin Review

YouTube Preview Image

“The Same Rising Tide Floats All Boats.”

Rarely seen and often misspelled, the Jackelope isn’t Colorado’s answer to the minotaur, nor is it some bogus animal like the snipe or the antelabbit. It’s a real creature. They say a flask of whiskey set out at night will work for bait when hunting Jackelope, but it doesn’t (we’ve tried…many times), and why would it? It doesn’t make any sense. The Jackelope live among Colorado’s junipers—Gin is the obvious answer. But we’re not wasting this on Jackelopes, even if they do taste like lobster.

Visual

Homestyle classic approach with deep family roots. Nice handrawn sketch on front of bottle full of outlines. Jackelope Gin is colored in blue with junipers on each of the side.  Peach Street Distillery is not trying to impress or overly compensate, they are just “Doing what we do.”

Aroma

Heavy Juniper on the nose with enough other compliments to carry this home. Minerals in the water really come through giving us a deep, earthy feel that lets us taste the rockies. There’s a sort of summerness in the air, that will keep us warm even in the coldest Colorado nights.

Entry

Comes on big, bold, bright and strong than very quickly fades away leaving a tingling, than quietly nothing else. You think something magic is going to happen, but than Jackelope gin does a quick disappearing act.

Midpalate

Spicy tingly continues than quickly mellows out, vanishing into nothing but whispers and echoes. Like a firework that fizzles out.

Aftertaste

Vanishes already with just a curious look on your face. Seems like a work in progress.

Final Thought: A brave attempt at making gin that needs closer examination to the water and ingredients.
