Dodd’s Small Batch Gin
Inspired by and named after the visionary engineer Ralph Dodd, this trail-blazing small batch gin is a considered and well-executed contemporary take on a classic gin that denotes the adventurous spirit of the city from which it hails.
Juniper-driven with bright, fresh lime peel in place of the more traditional coriander seed, this makes for a gin that is at once elegant and playful, invigorating and mellow – despite the higher ABV.
Verdant lime and bay laurel greet the nose, while the delightful mouthfeel and a delectable, subtle sweetness come from the addition of London honey collected from local beehives, imparting a creaminess that bestows floral notes of lime blossom and jasmine. This mellows the refreshing, earthy menthol notes delivered by lingering hints of bay and angelica, which in turn beckons an elegant finish of black and green cardamom with a tickle of soft spice and nectar from fresh red raspberry leaf.
