Fords Officers' Reserve Gin
An overproof and cask-aged variant of Fords Gin, made with the same botanical recipe as the original, produced at Thames Distillers in London, then rested in 64 liter Amontillado sherry casks for three weeks. It's then blended with a portion of the unaged gin, helping to balance the intensity of the oak notes imparted from the casks, and bottled at 54.5% ABV. We reckon this would make a great Last Word cocktail.
Nose: Ford’s has created a gin with a citrus-led nose that is complimented by subtle spice, plum and caramel aromas.
Palate: The palate initially offers notes of honey and citrus which develop slowly into aromatic coriander, juniper and orange, with a subtle ginger undercurrent.
Finish: Finishes with a lightly tannic, citrus, and pepper fade with some tingling heat.
