To the distillers who developed it, recipe 48 represented perfection.
Made from 11 unique botanicals and infused rosewater, 48 Gin is a product that is more than the sum of its ingredients, it’s a South African success story, savoured by those who are true high rollers.
A soft and pleasant savoury aroma dominates this gin while juniper takes a backseat. Honey dew, vanilla and caramel notes lends a sweeter dynamic while soft citrus and mineral complexity adds to produce a very inviting gin.
On the palate a sweet and savoury taste soon gives way to warm but very well integrated alcohol. A relatively short body with lingering orris root makes for a versatile mixing gin – in tonic or bitter lemon, the spirit has a high drinkability. A modern interpretation of a classic dry gin.
