Fifty Pounds ‘Cask at the Back’ takes us back to the nineteenth century, a time when gin was transported in oak barrels. Some of these barrels had previously contained Sherry and were reused to transport the gin to different cities and warehouses. Cask at the Back alludes to those barrels that were stored at the back of the warehouse and used to sit there for longer lengths of time than those at the front because they were more difficult get to. The gin in these barrels acquired a deeper colour and a distinct character, especially those which had contained Sherry.
Bright and luminous old gold. Juniper and citrus with hints of toasted oak and wood along with floral notes and delicate hints of raisins, prunes and nuts. Sweet and very pleasant at the start, it is warm, smooth, very complex and balanced, leaving a delightful sensation of roundness on the palate.
