Greensand PX Cask Gin 50cl
PX Cask Gin is a rare and unique expression of what a cask-aged gin can truly be. It has the most robust flavour, the biggest mouthfeel and the greatest complexity, even in a spirit that is as smooth and silky as honey.
Firstly they distil their multi-award winning London Dry Gin with a slightly altered recipe to add a little more citrusy brightness and moderate some of the woody elements of the unaged release.
They then age the spirit in Pedro-Ximenez Sherry casks for ten months. The intensely sweet, dark, dessert sherry-infused cask infuses in to our already complex and smooth spirit, adding layers of raisin, molasses and christmas spice.
Most cask gins are put into tiny barrels which imparts a flavour in weeks. They opt to mature in 250 litre sherry butt which necessitates a longer maturation period to get a balanced flavour but brings a much richer and far more complex character from the toasted barrels.
The result is a spirit which confounds and delights the senses.
