Sylvius Gin is made with excruciating eye for detail. The core is a London Dry Gin. This means a couple of things; no sugar, 1 time distilled and only natural flavourings are allowed. For this, we painstakingly peel tons of oranges ourselves in the distillery to ensure maximum freshness. Upon tasting you will find hints of anise, cinnamon on a sturdy basis of proper gin.
We have put a fair amount of botanicals in the distillate, more than other brands we have found out. The result is that our gin tastes different with various dilutions of tonic (or in cocktails).
So, when you’ve got your hands on a bottle try this:
Taste is neat; it will demonstrate a ‘classic gin’ flavour profile
Taste it 1 on 1 with water; the gin is much more sweet and anise dominates.
Taste it 1 on 4 with water: the gin now has the accent on orange and citrus.
Isn’t that something to work with as a cocktailbartender?
