Ageing English distilled gin in French oak barrels in the cool and dry Icelandic climate. Is it Madness or Genius?
Martin Miller’s 9 Moons Gin is a high strength gin, cask-aged for 9 months in Iceland. A Solera Vat process gives excellent consistency while maintaining the complex and distinctive taste.
IT'S ALL ABOUT HITTING THE SWEET-SPOT
When ageing spirits, the rule of thumb is the longer, the better. However, we found that this gin needs precisely 9 months to tune up its flavour, endowing a little magic during that time resting in its oaky bed.
Getting carried away and over-ageing would ruin the delicacy of this gin, sometimes knowing when to stop is more important than being patient!
ICELANDIC CLIMATE. A GIFT OF THE GODS.
Iceland’s cold but dry climate significantly slows down the ageing process giving us the possibility to precisely measure the progress of this complex and intriguing spirit.
Elegant and oaky. The juniper flavour is matched with a perfect balance of vanilla and citrus aromas. Creamy in the mouth with toasted oak in the finish.
Lemon peels in the first impression integrated with juniper, after that, the perfectly-balanced vanilla appears.
Slight sweetness with a creamy feeling.
Really long with notes of oak.
