Boodles: A proper British Gin

boodles a proper british gin

With all the gins out there on the market, selecting the right one can be a daunting task. We recently stumbled upon Boodles Gin, which hails itself as a “proper British gin.” Every batch is crafted carefully with “labor and patience.” According to its website, “it begins as a clean spirit distilled from British wheat. The liquid is then redistilled in a Carter Head copper still, which allows the botanicals to infuse gradually into the spirit.” The distillers made the interesting choice of adding no citrus to the mixture, because they figured that a fresh wedge or slice of lemon or lime would be served with a gin cocktail. It also contains traditional herbs and spices, including nutmeg, sage, and rosemary. Whether you want to mix it up with tonic or use it in a cocktail, Boodles gin has a lovely, fresh taste that any gin enthusiast would like. Curious about what it’s like in a cocktail? Mixologist Brian Means of Dirty Habit in San Francisco crafted two cocktails that you can try at home.
