Zuidam Dutch Courage Aged Gin 70cl
Mellow notes of vanilla and gentle spice join with the fresh vibrant gin from Zuidam in their aged edition
Zuidam Dutch Courage Aged Gin
With their aged gin, Zuidam use the same recipe as their Dutch Courage Dry Gin. Using fresh citrus fruits, they distill in small batches to ensure consistent quality.
What makes their Aged gin different is that they add an additional stage to the creation, and rest the gin in American oak casks. The result of this is an addition of a vanilla spice note, whilst retaining its fresh and fruity qualities.
The nose on this gin isn't overpowering in anyway. There is a balance between citrus and juniper notes, which are delightfully joined by sweetened soft vanilla spice.
The flavour is dry, with citrus notes coming through - again, enhanced by the aging process - which brings forth a little spice.

This is a pleasant soft, yet fresh gin which works well when making a Dry Martini.
To enjoy the complex yet delicate flavour profiles themselves, this makes a particularly stunning Gin and Tonic. In a glass with ice, add 50ml of the gin and top up with Double Dutch Indian Tonic Water (between 150ml and 200ml to your taste). Garnish with a slice of lemon.
