Geographically protected by the EU, Plymouth Gin comes from the oldest gin distillery in England and was called for in many of the first recorded dry martini recipes. Plymouth doesn’t have the strong aroma of botanicals and juniper that some other gins do, but maintains a subtle smooth flavor and a bit of a bite. Unlike most gins (typically London Dry Gins like Tanqueray, Beefeater, or Bombay Saphire) Plymouth Gin only contains seven botanicals that give it a slightly fruity flavor with a distinct aroma, but it’s also crisp and dry.
