6 O’clock Gin
The Smoothness Flows From The Custom-Built Copper Still With Its Unique Double Sphere Head, Together With The Careful Selection Of Our Botanicals And Our Distiller’s Craft. Only The Pure Hear Of Each Run Makes The Cut.
Edward Kain, The Dapper Gentleman Seafarer And Great Grandfather Of Our Head Distiller, Enjoyed His Gin And Tonic At 6 O’clock, A Tradition Still Shared By British Gin-Lovers All Over The World Today.
Clean, Green Elderflower Leaps Forward, Supported By A Delightfully Sweet And Juicy Orange. Juniper Is Present Throughout, But Never In A Dominating Capacity, Rather It Supports The Entire Flavour Journey, Leaving The Mouth Oscillating Wildly Between Pine And Citrus Long After The Sip Is Supped.
Nose – Enough botanicals to make us wish we had five noses. Big notes of citrus, delicate menthol and flowers everywhere.
Palate – Cool at first. It quickly mellows out, warmth growing with citrus keeping it fresh throughout.
Finish – Long, with a good spice.
Hand-Crafted & Small-Batch Gin. Orange And Lime Peels Arrive First On The Nose, But Are Quickly Backed Up By Refreshing, Vegetal Herbs. A Crackle Of Peppery Juniper Lasts Throughout.
When They Say Hand-Crafted & Small-Batch, This Is The Entire Truth. The Small-Batch Distilled Spirit Is Bottled By Hand, With Each Bottle Being Individually Numbered And Signed By The Master Distiller.
Avva – Means A Respected Grand-Mother, A Respected Mother, Any Old Or Respectable Woman In The Indian Language Of Dravidian. In Hebrew It Means To Overturn Or Ruin Which Links The Reputation That Gin Had As ‘Mother’s Ruin’ From The Hogarth Era.
