Nolet’s Silver Dry Gin is a silky-smooth, modern Gin that will earn its place on your top shelf.
"Proper" Gins are usually associated with the UK and Jenever, it’s rustic cousin, with Holland. Well, Nolet’s is based in Holland and Gin is what they’ve made... for more than 300 years. Their motto is: “The Finest Gins,” and they have earned that moniker. Their current Gin line-up includes three Gins: Silver, Reserve, and Heritage.
The distillery also produces Kettle One Vodka and a few other brands. They help smaller shops with production, but they keep that work low profile. The point here is: these guys have tons — well, centuries — of experience and are respected and trusted by the entire Spirits community.
Nolet’s Silver Dry Gin is a premium, modern Gin. Juniper defines most Gins, and some classic Gins (here's looking at you, London Dry!) really hit you in the face with enough juniper, pine & resin flavor to leave a mark. Sometimes that's exactly what you want in your Martini, but Nolet’s Silver Dry Gin doesn’t scream PINE FOREST in your face in a brutal manner.
Like many modern style Gins, it only whispers juniper and pairs it with a bouquet of roses and fresh fruits. Sipping it neat or on the rocks is fun, especially if tannins aren't your best friends. It's also bottled at an impressive 47.6% ABV, which complements the floral notes rather well.
The Negroni we made out of it was absolutely fantastic... and silky smooth.
