This week’s special treat was from St George’s Spirits, we’ve included their info-sheets, and a quick tasting overall (no scores as we need some time with a spirit before we put it through our reviews, which a tasting can not provide.

First we have the gins, available were Botanivore, and Terroir – Botanivore was very flavorful, and reminiscent of the Rangpur (although the citrus is far more downplayed.) Terroir was like a tree grew out of your mouth – the juniper/pine taste wasn’t overwhelming, it just hits you in a very unique way.

Breaking and Entering Whiskey – is a blended American whiskey from all over Kentucky – (generally all bourbon of whiskey is blended, but in-house.) As far as it goes though, it’s middle of the road – which for a blend it makes sense that unless you do something high-end a blend will just be average.
