987 Nueveochosiete London Dry Gin         0,7L 40%

Der herrliche spanische 987 Nueveochosiete London Dry Gin von 987 Spirits Drinks SL wird aus 14 feinen Botanicals hergestellt, darunter neben Wacholder und Zitrusfrüchten auch Vanilleschoten, Thymian, bittere Kamille, Lavendel und Mencía-Wein aus dem Weinbaugebiet El Bierzo. Einige der weiteren Botanicals sind ein streng gehütetes Geheimnis. Die Botanicals werden sorgfältig einzeln im Pot-Still aus Kupfer zweifach destilliert. Seine klare, brillante Farbe und seine verführerischen Aromen von Wacholder, frischen Kräutern und einem Hauch von delikaten Blüten faszinieren schon vor dem ersten Tropfen im Mund. Am Gaumen fühlt er sich weich und cremig, beinah ölig an und überzeugt mit dem intensiven Geschmack von Wacholder und Kräutern und dem feinen Mencía-Wein. Im Nachklang zeigt er eine zarte Süße und Würze mit blumigen Noten und Vanille. Der 987 Nueveochosiete London Dry Gin hat mehrere Medaillen gewonnen, unter anderem Silber bei der International Spirits Challenge 2017.


987 is a new, 100% distilled, London Dry Gin, with hints of aromatic herbs and citrus fruits. It is the result of 8 distillations, performed in copper pot stills using the maceration of 14 botanicals and citrus fruits, including as well as Juniper and Vanilla Pods, Thyme, Bitter Chamomile, Lavender and Mencía Wine, all of them from El Bierzo. Our botanicals and citrus fruits are independently distilled twice in an 1880 copper pot still. The full grain alcohol used in its production is distilled five times, free of genetic manipulation, and comes from one of the best distilleries in Europe. After that, it is slowly filtered and bottled by hand.
 

TASTING NOTE

Transparent Colour, sparkling lights in its clean and bright bottom. In Nose: Symphony of juniper and fresh herbs aromas with flowery notes and sweet and spiced feelings, well put together under a layer of wine notes. In Mouth: Soft, creamy and oily at first. Explosion of Juniper and fresh herbs flavours well combined with Mencía wine touches. Later turning slightly sweet, pleasantly spiced with flowery and vanilla notes.

PERFECT SERVE
Spice the drink with Green lemon. Add 5ml of 987. If by mistake more than 5ml of gin is added, it will not be a problem; the drink will accept it. Fill the glass with ice. If it is 60 g, thick ice, the kind you find in a petrol station, even better. This way we will keep it from getting too watery. Add tonic. Normal or double carbonated Schweppes. Serve it carefully supported by a little spoon, if possible, to keep it from losing carbonic acid. Stir the cocktail slowly and put some Green lemon twist all over it.
