Martin Miller’s Westbourne Strength Gin 45.2% Alcohol 700ml
Martin Miller’s Westbourne Strength London Dry Gin was launched in 2003. It was designed for bartenders who had asked for a higher ABV version of the already successful Martin Miller’s Gin, for mixing.
It is distilled in two batches. Firstly, the non-citrus botanicals are distilled. Then separately, the citrus. By grouping the heavier botanicals, it enables the distiller to be more aggressive with the heat and to dig deeper into the tails for those richer, heavier volatiles.
Finally, Martin Miller’s Westbourne Strength Gin is diluted with Icelandic water. (This is why it has won awards for Best Icelandic Gin in the past)
Cucumber essence is also added after distillation and is responsible for the characteristic fresh, vegetal aroma.
