BB&R is Blowing Up!!!

As you can see the K&L Spirits Blog is not only about Whisky!  Pisco Sour day is celebrated below, as well as the new Rum from Berry Bros.  Today, I'd like to talk about another great product from the venerable wine & spirits retailer in London.

BB&R's No. 3 London DryNo. 3 London Dry Gin 750ml - $39.99

Specially bottled for Berry Bros & Rudd in London, this gin was created to exemplify the classic London Dry style. Unabashedly juniper driven, the riveting No. 3 gets its name from the historic home of Berry Bros at No.3 St James Street in London, where they've been operating continuously since 1698. The No. 3 pushes tradition to the extreme using a simple 3 fruit and 3 spice recipe. The nose is all citrus and piney juniper. On the palate the juniper is balanced perfectly with spicy coriander and verdant cardamom. The finish brings the earth telltale prickle of angelica root and continues with surprising length. An exceptional product, distilled for one of the most important British wine & spirits businesses in history, by the Brits traditional rivals, the Dutch? I'm sure they weren't expecting that in 1698, go figure. An excellent collaboration.

The Legendary King's GingerKing's Ginger Liqueur 750ml - $39.99

From a century old recipe created in 1903 by Berry Bros & Rudd in London specifically for King Edward VII, King's Ginger Liqueur is a top class ginger liqueur unlike any other.  Voluptuous yet vibrant, His Majesty used it to "stimulate and revivify" himself.  Appreciated by the Sporting Class ever since, we've waited along time for its arrival.  The sublime liqueur's base is Glenrothes Single Malt Whisky.  Carefully macerated ginger root and lemon peel are slowly steep in this heady and expensive base.  It has various uses namely as a warming agent on a cold night, after dinner as a digestif, as an invigorating component to a cocktail, with tonic or as a spritzer.   The color is shimmering gold and the body is perfectly rich without being sappy.  Delicate and subtle for all the intensity of flavor, King's Ginger is a must have for any serious tippler.
