If you like Larios Dry Gin and Larios Rose its a safe bet you will like Larios 12, its premium expression. The name comes from the twelve botanicals used in its five distillations. Blended together with a predominance of citrus, orange blossom is the fifth distillation. The bottle has a more premium look too with its vibrant deep blue colour.
Officially re-launched briefly in 2013 after a period in distilling limbo when it wasn’t produced at all, (it was released in 1997 and discontinued in 2000) Tanqueray Malacca is steadily acquiring cult status.
Veni! Vidi! Bibi! I came! I saw! I drank! If ever a gin distillery was steeped in history, it is the York Gin Company. How the York Gin Company came about has a Chaucerian feel to it. Four friends ‘hatched’ the idea for a gin in a pub, at least two of them were landlords, another had a taste for fine food and drink. By coincidence, unbeknown to them, a fifth friend was also hatching a plot to produce a York gin too.
