D. George Benham’s Sonoma Dry Gin is big, bold and still well-balanced. It touches every part of the palate. Rich, ripe juniper is well-integrated and provides the framework. Citrus and exotic fruit flavors enhance and brighten the botanicals.
On the nose, there’s the scent of warm cardamom, baking spices, truffle-like angelica earthiness and floral chamomile notes.
On the palate, the full flavors are balanced by sweetness from star anise and creaminess from the orris root.
The gin dances on the finish, with a touch of cool mint and peppery spice from the galangal and grains of paradise.
