Burroughs's Reserve is a testament that doing things different can create an exceptional outcome. Its bottle tells the story of the spirit as the rounded glass structure and label evokes Jean de Littet's oak barrels that the gin rests in, whist the solid decanter-style bottle shows off the light golden liquid. Its shallow profile allows light to refract off the embossed wreath of botanicals that frame the label.
Each bottle bares a label with a unique bottle and batch number which emphasises the hand-produced and small-batched production of Burrough's reserve. The colour palette and textures also reflects the unique manufacturing. Copper is used to reference the copper still of Beefeater founder, James Burrough and that the gin is distilled in and a wooden stopper to reference the oak Jean de Lillet barrels that the gin is rested in.
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 91 points - Sweet cinnamon, vanilla, and mild citrus notes softly waft from the glass. The palate is a delightful blend of candied orange, dried orange and various baking spices with ethereal herbal notes in the finish.
