A gin review by Kevin Casey
Beefeater London Dry Gin is the quintessential example of the style. The distillery has been around forever, and with good reason. They make good gin.
The nose is juniper forward. It reminds me of sitting in a well-manicured evergreen garden, but there are also subtle notes of meyer lemon in there. On the palate, the juniper continues and is complimented by coriander and hints of orris root.
If you know me, you know I like a good martini. But it has to be good vermouth, otherwise I’d rather just sip on the gin alone. For this martini, I used Dolin. The two played really well together, resulting in a bright, crisp martini that highlighted the best of both ingredients.
