Del Professore Madame Gin 700ml
The Jerry Thomas Project produce two types of Gin del Professore, the Monsieur, with a more classic gin profile of juniper and citrus, and the Madame, with an extra layer of sweeter spiced aromas of cinnamon, vanilla and wild rose.
Both gins represent the rediscovery of a lost style of gin production: the making of the ‘Bathtub Gin’. These were gins produced illegally during the American Prohibition, either at home, at Speakeasies or in distilleries. The gins were often fairly poor quality, so the Jerry Thomas producers wanted to bring the concept of the Bathtub Gin back into being, but to a very high quality, using artisanal methods and high quality ingredients.
The Gin a la Madame really is a unique gin, displaying aromas from a carefully-calculated blend that speaks primarily of juniper, lemon, orange, tansy, turmeric, cinnamon and cassia bark, and particularly memorable for its freshness and intensity of the spices.
