Our oenologists' opinion
Powerful wine with potential
Colourless and transparent, nice frank and fresh nose of juniper, peppery notes, mint. Nice balance in the mouth, frank and straight, full-bodied, framed, full, nice envelope on sweetness, frank and strightforward character on the juniper, mint, nice length where the alcohol, nice and present, is not dominant or agressive.
Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.
Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.
Do you know ?
The gin that is used most in cocktails is “dry” with the "London Dry Gin" appellation and is the gauge of quality. Invented in London, it has been primarily produced in England ever since.
Domain and appellation
J.J. Whitley, son of a pastor, spent his entire childhood inside presbyteries, at Hereford, then at Daresbury, where he played in the gardens of Walton Hall. It is in this rural and typically English landscape that J.J. Whitley grew up. There he found inspiration to create a range of singular and artisanal spirits. This gin is the product of eight generation of the distiller tradition.
- Manufacturing: Eight main ingredients were used to elaborate this gin. Orange and lemon peels, juniper, angelica seeds, coriander, liquorice, cassia bark and orris roots.
