Cadenhead’s Old Raj Dry Gin 110 Proof Gin

Old Raj Blue Label

Old Raj Gin is unlike anything you’ve ever had before.

And that’s a good thing…

According to Cadenhead’s Website, the oldest¬†independent¬†bottler of spirits, Established 1842.

They are Sticklers for Perfection and want only the best, which is a justifiable reason to use the worlds most expensive Spice: Saffron. 

Most of the world’s Saffron production comes from Iran, and just to yield a pound requires up to 75,000 flowers.

This is the taste of Prestige and Royalty, and you will feel like a king when you drink Old Raj Gin.

I want you to stop right now and repeat to yourself, “I’m worth it.” As this was the theme going through my mind when I consumed Old Raj Gin. Things slow to a crawl and a time to relax is Upon us. It is required to realize that in no means should you be rushed when enjoying yourself, and extra special care needs to be payed attention to the atmosphere of enjoyment.

What I really admire about Old Raj Gin is that it’s brought a new understanding and given me an opportunity to appreciate my work in understanding gins. The greatest assest is time, and I don’t think many people have the situation to sit down at a bar for hours and enjoy a single serving of Old Raj Gin. ¬†So then now we are limited to endowments into the company of our own home. And it has to be enjoyed with others, so more careful planing and thought go into this¬†ceremonial¬†experience.

This cannot be rushed and has to be embraced in all avenues of understanding. I would argue that the american people to drink a gin, straight, at their own speed, would be hard pressed to be found a common thing.

I recall when I went into an upscale bar, specializing in craft beer and fine spirits, and ordered gin neat. The Bartender exclaimed, ” I’ve been¬†bartending¬†for 12 years, and I have never served gin straight.” To which I replied, ” You’ve never heard of”

Cadenhead’s Old Raj Gin bring a certain level of control that is best served straight. Taking the pure essence for what it’s worth is where it’s at.¬†

  1. I also like to examine the sketches on the bottle as I enjoy a glass of Old Raj. There is just something about the art and the formidable scent of this beverage that takes me on a journey…and I feel like Old Raj personified. Probably best served over ice, or in a straight martini, slightly shaken. My good friend Brian Spilner bought me a bottle as a wedding gift…and like you we like to enjoy this together…on the most special of occasions.

  2. As stated above, this is a very special gin that deserves very special attention!

    My first bottle was payment for some computer work I completed for a friend. He actually had to order via the internet as it was nowhere to be found locally. WOW – what a flavor!

    I would emphasize – this is not a mixing gin – go to the cheaper bottles for the fufu recipes. This gin is definitely intended to be neat; strait; served solo. Personally, I drink it in a 1.5 shot glass, and that will last me 20 or 30 minutes. This is not a gin to be thrown down. It is meant to be sipped and savored.

    Thank you Cadenhead for being the only distiller to actually get it right!
