North Shore No. 6 Gin (750ml)

SKU #1049708 Wine Enthusiast

 This interpretation of a 'modern dry gin' is spicy, potent and bright. It has an enticing grapefruit peel aroma. On the palate, alcohol heat leads, but then unfolds to show zingy citrus, anise and coriander. At 90 proof, there's plenty of alcohol presence, but it should stand up nicely to dilution in a long drink like a classic gin-and-tonic or Tom Collins. (KN)  (7/2014)

K&L Notes

North Shore's Gin No. 6 is extremely smooth, with a complex balance of citrus, spice and floral notes. North Shore creates No. 6 (90 proof) by infusing their grain-based spirit with hand-selected botanicals from all over the world, along with fresh lemon zest and lavender blossoms. If you have never tasted this gin, or you think you don't like gin, we strongly recommend trying it neat (straight) before mixing it into a cocktail or martini. This will allow you to smell and taste its complex nature. We know you will be amazed at how much you like it. Distiller's Gin No. 6 is fantastic in a traditional martini; we recommend an 8:1 ratio of gin to vermouth, although this gin works well with more vermouth if you like it that way. 95 points and a Gold Medal/Exceptional Rating from the Beverage Testing Institute: "Clear with a platinum cast. Vibrant aromas of fresh herbs and spices, piney juniper, and twisted lemon peels jump from the glass. A silky entry leads to a fruity-yet-dry medium-full body of bold cracked juniper berry, pink peppercorns, lemon curd, clove, and pastry frosting flavors. Finishes with a long interplay of resiny juniper, sweet citrus and brown spices. A superb gin that virtually bristles with fresh, 3-D flavors. Very impressive!" (2008)

This top-notch gin made was a fabulous partner to tonic last night. With a strong hint of rosemary and winter spice, I found it to be incredibly refreshing and all to easy too drink. It took a lot of self discipline to only have one! This is a must in the cabinet of any gin lover.

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.
