Booth's Sherry Cask Mellowed Gin!!

Booth's Finest Dry Gin Sherry Cask Mellowed....$42.99

"The first edition The Savoy Cocktail book published in 1930 features an advertisement for a “barrel-aged gin”. Perhaps the most revered of all aged gins, Booth’s Finest Dry Gin, is sadly no longer made [they have now brought it back]. This was aged in ex-sherry butts at a time when sherry was still imported in butts with large numbers of casks arriving in London, the centre of gin production. The sherry oak gave the gin a distinctive flavour and pale golden colour." - from Citadelle Gin's Website
