新的爱尔兰杜松子酒

方法与疯狂 Launch: 新的爱尔兰杜松子酒

ILoveGin被邀请飞到爱尔兰科克附近的米德尔顿,检查在“米德尔顿微型酿酒厂”。由于Gintern的冬青树无法做到,创始人Toby抓住了这个机会(并借此机会采访了他们的Apprentice Distiller,同时也是第一个品尝新杜松子酒的人。总是很高兴!)

 

才过了几天,我才意识到“The Microdistillery”是詹姆森威士忌酒厂广阔地块上的众多建筑之一!“Method and Madness”是微型酿酒厂生产的一系列独特和实验性威士忌,它们’ve最近将第一杜松子酒添加到该范围中。詹姆森(Jameson)是爱尔兰蒸馏厂品牌之一,该品牌本身归Pernod Ricard所有,因此这是一个“micro distillery” ultimately owned by the second biggest spirits company 在 the world. It certainly means they have all the resources they could need to make a really fantastic gin, launch it 在 style, and get it out to retailers all over the world. It was fascinating to see a huge company setting up a 微型酿酒厂 (in truth, it was a lot bigger than quite a few other distilleries we’我去过我们肯定不会’t call “micro”!),并投入团队和资源来进行实验,手动蒸馏和以较小的规模推出新产品。

 

 

The day began with an 在 troduction to the Master Distiller, Brian Nation, Apprentice Distiller Henry Donnelly, and Archivist Carol Quinn who told us about a notebook kept 在 the Midleton Distillery archive dating back to the 1790s. Written by a rectifier 在 Cork called William Coldwell, it details the recipes, botanicals and methods that 在 formed the creation of Irish Distillers’ Cork Crimson Gin 在 2005, which subsequently provided the primary 在 spiration for Brian and Henry 在 reimagining the recipe for 方法与疯狂 Gin.

 

 

After the 在 troduction from the team, curtains rolled back, and an impressive audio-visual display played a theme tune for the gin, accompanied by close-up shots on various screens and dynamic flashing lighting, before we were called forward to explore the botanicals and had our first look at the bottle. At this point there was no doubt that it was a 微型酿酒厂 with a macro marketing budget, and we were loving it!

 

在那之后,我们穿过了剧照并与令人印象深刻的人站在一起“Mickey’s Belly”, Ireland’s oldest gin still first commissioned 在 1958, and then headed towards the back of the distillery for a taste of a 方法与疯狂 Gin and Poacher’s Tonic G&T,用柠檬皮大捻。

 

 

The gin 在 cludes 16 botanicals led by black lemon (essentially a sun-dried lemon) and Irish gorse flower – imparting notes of citrus and spice with subtle earthy undertones. 方法与疯狂 Gin is bottled at 43% ABV and is available 在 Ireland and Global Travel Retail from March 2019, at the RRP of €50 per 70cl bottle, and should be making it over to the UK 在 July.

 

 

杜松子酒当然是独一无二的,但它’s not as huge a departure from the classic London dry style as it could have been, given the experimental nature of the 微distillery. I think it’证明了布莱恩和亨利’的经验,技巧和坦率的天赋才能阻止疯狂,使方法不堪重负,其结果是我可以做到的真正的杜松子酒’等着在英国找到更多。 (很遗憾,我的少量外卖样本没有’不要和我一起登上飞机!)

 

非常感谢团队邀请我们参加了精彩的活动,包括发布会后在米德尔顿的Sage举行的精彩晚宴,并感谢Henry Donnelly花时间在相机上回答了一些问题,您可以在下面观看以了解更多有关如何有人在这样的著名公司成为学徒蒸馏师。
