Review: Martin Miller’s Gin

Posted by Arctic Wolf on April 8, 2020

Martin Miller’s Gin is produced at the Langley Distillery upon some of the oldest working copper pot stills in the United Kingdom. The Langley Distillery produces a variety of gins on a contract basis for many different UK producers. (Spanish wines and spirits producer Zamora Company currently own a majority stake in Martin Miller’s Gin.)

According to the Martin Miller’s website the gin produced for them is double distilled (using neutral spirit) on these pot stills with Angelica, Cassia, Coriander, Nutmeg, bitter Orange Peel, dried Lemon Peel, dried Lime Peel, Licorice Root, Florentine Iris, and of course Juniper. (Note: According to an article published in Spirits Business (30th March, 2016), a little bit of cucumber essence is added to the botanical mixture as well.)

Apparently the citrus elements are distilled separately from the other botanicals and the two separate distillates are then blended to the proper flavour profile. Water from Iceland is used to bring the final spirit to bottling strength.

Here is a link to the full review:

Review: Martin Miller’s Gin 

“… I sense a traditional gin spirit with juniper and citrus leading the botanical parade. The citrus in fact dominates at first but after a few moments the juniper finds its legs. Licorice and hints of cinnamon are apparent as is a firm orange liqueur-like aroma similar to Orange Curacao. And then there is something else, perhaps a melding of the cucumber essence with the botanical construct giving the spirit a new twist which I haven’t encountered in gin before …”

Please enjoy the review which concludes with my suggested serving, the Gin and Tonic.

Chimo!
