- And we couldn’t be happier to step out and enjoy them all. Here’s a review of everything we tasted
Sommelier and CEO of All Things Nice Nikhil Agarwal organised six gins for a tasting session in collaboration with Sofitel Mumbai BKC. The gin tasting was as below:
Hendricks Gin –
Boodles Gin –
Edinburgh Seaside Gin –
This one was one of the most anticipated gins, given the addition of seaweed in it. It’s not an ingredient or botanical usually associated with gins, making it the most interesting tasting gin at the session. Its light minerality and slight salinity was a refreshing change and made the Edinburgh Seaside Gin something worth sipping slowly to savour its distinct taste.
Pumori Small Batch Gin –
Hapusa Gin –
Greater Than Gin –
The OG Indian gin that put the nation on a gin-spree and one that still stands apart with its clean use of juniper and gingery finish on the palate, Greater Than is one gin that almost everybody would have tasted by now in its over three years of existence. A familiar and welcome addition to the other five gins being tasted, Greater Than made sure of making a case for itself at the tasting.
