This is the only the second cucumber gin I've ever tried, oddly enough, and the first was a little less serious than this one. Immediately I'm struck by the bold, imposing design of the bottle - the blacked out glass shows this gin means business, whilst the coppery label pays homage to the hand crafted copper distillation process it went through in order to appear before me.
Already appeased before even uncorking, I set about actually treating it like a gin. Opened, poured a generous measure into a glass and added some of our tonic water. Striking genius (of course, a near daily occurence for me), I dug a cucumber out of my fridge and added a slice of that - it's not everyday you taste something so exquisite, you know. And of course it was everything you'd expect from such a premium gin. It's incredibly aromatic, with scents of cucumber and mint - a combination you probably couldn't even dream up, and yet, almost as if by magic, it works perfectly. Then it comes to tasting, and I'm happy to report it's almost exactly the same story - a deliciously clean blend of cucumber, with its sweet, crisp taste - perfectly balanced out by the juniper that always comes through in dry gins, adding the peppery aftertaste we've come to expect from such gins.
Overall, the subtle flavour of this gin isn't to be underestimated. If cucumber gins are your style, or even if you've never tried one before, the English Drinks Company has you covered with this magnificent beverage.
