Brockmans Tasting Notes

Brockmans

Brockmans gin is the dream of four gentleman named Kevan, David, Bob and Neil who wanted to create a gin that evoked a fresh taste that would change the perception of contemporary gins.

Created in England, it is made using 10 botanicals including Bulgarian coriander blueberries and blackberries as well as Valencia orange peels, juniper, orris root, cassia bark, angelica root, almonds and lemons. A 200 year old copper still is used after the botanicals are left to soak for a period of 24 hours.

So how does this English gin fare? Well below, I give to you my tasting notes –

Brockmans – 40%

Light, fresh ripe fruit on the nose, with berries dominating. Smooth on the palate with an almost tutti frutti style flavour coming through. Fresh hits continue over the long finish.

A great nip of gin, and one that is recommended to be a part of this too –

Ingredients –

40 ml Brockmans
20 ml Lemon juice
15 ml Sugar syrup
15 ml Crème de Mure
2 Blackberries

Method –

Place Brockmans, lemon juice and sugar syrup into a cocktail shaker with a handful of crushed ice. Shake and then strain into the glass. Pour the Crème de Mure over the top and garnish with the blackberries.

A great cocktail that is becoming a classic and staple for many bars. As should Brockmans, to be fair.

    You can either apply the mineral oils with a cotton ball under your chin and wrap with
    plastic wrap covered with a warm towel, of you can dip an ace bandage into the
    mixture and wrap snugly under your chin for at least 45 minutes.
