GSN Review: Martin Miller’s Gin

picture 34400Who was Martin Miller?  Surprisingly, he was the author of dozens of bestselling antique price guides.  Why name a gin after him?  It turns out he was the partner with two other businessmen, Andreas Versteegh and David Bromige who created the gin back in 1999.  You have to admit that the other two names don’t trip off the tongue quite as easily as Martin Miller’s.  Sadly, Mr. Miller passed away on Christmas Eve 2013 at the age of 67.  Luckily for us, the gin continues to find it’s way onto the shelves of some of the world’s greatest bars.

Martin Miller’s Gin (80 proof)
Visual: Clear.
Nose:  Tangy juniper notes blend with a fresh lemony citrus scent.
Taste: Smooth and mild with more peppery notes picking up midway through the initial tasting.  Quite a lot of citrus character adds a summery warmth.
Finish: Clean, crisp and with a touch of minerality.
Overall: A great gin for martinis and gin forward cocktails.  Try this one on the rocks with some house-made tonic water, a squeeze of lime and pretend that it’s high summer already.
GSN Rating: A
