A platinum experience

At the Copper House Distillery, we use the ‘London Dry’ method to produce gins of exceptional flavour. First, we make a vodka-quality spirit using locally sourced grain, and our copper pot still and copper rectifying column. We then redistill the vodka in our gin still with a range of selected botanicals. To make First Rate, we use Longshore Vodka, which is made from a distillery wash of 60% malted barley, 35% wheat and 5% oats. This base spirit is exceptionally smooth thanks to its unique mash bill, and we put this vodka into our gin still with a special combination of 13 botanicals. With First Rate, you will discover something different with every sip. It is big, bold, and complex, and truly a gin to savour. This batch was created back in 2017. For this limited release, it was placed in an American oak barrel for a period of a few weeks. It is therefore a barrel-rested gin, and not barrel-aged. This short time in oak has added further complexity to its already rich flavours. The cask has yielded just 300 bottles and we are excited to share them for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee to celebrate Her Majesty's 70 years of service.

Description

Her Majesty The Queen will become the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee. To mark this auspicious occasion, Adnams has released a limited-edition, barrel-rested gin. The first gin to be bottled for our Distiller’s Choice range, is something rather special, so it felt fitting to present it in a bottle that unique to the range. For this limited release, Adnams First Rate gin was placed in an American oak barrel for just a few weeks.This short time in oak has added further complexity, along with notes of toasted oak and a vanilla sweetness, and has lifted some of our favourite characteristics, most notably the herbal hints of thyme.

How does it taste

We redistilled our trophy-winning triple grain vodka, Longshore, with a complex and powerful blend of 13 botanicals and rested the resulting spirit in an American oak barrel. There’s lots to savour in this limited release for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. Aromatic garden herbs, resinous pine and citrus juniper can be found on the aroma and are joined by warming spices and citrus peel on the palate. Notes of oak and a vanilla sweetness follow and linger through the lengthy finish.
