Beefeater Winter Edition Gin
We covered Beefeater's limited Summer Edition gin this past summer (seems like a good time for it) and we just got wind of a winter edition, which will also be released in limited quantities. It will come in around $20 and is only available in select markets. It's worth scoping out though, apparently - we loved the summer version, and the folks at Drink Spirits have plenty of nice things to say about the wintry one.
The orange from the nose presents itself solidly on the palate as more of an orange peel, accompanied by the pine from the juniper, which again is much softer and easier. The coriander from the nose is also very present on the palate, supported by cinnamon, vanilla, and a hint of lemon and nutmeg. The finish is cool and clean, with juniper and a very subtle cinnamon that slightly lingers.
They go on to say its mellow nature will appeal to those who don't usually like gin, which we also found in the summer expression.
