Few Spirits launches earl grey Breakfast Gin28th January, 2016 by Melita Kiely
US spirits producer Few Spirits has launched a new Breakfast Gin expression, made using earl grey tea.
The new variant was initially unveiled last year, but is now available to order through distributor Maverick Drinks.
Designed by distiller Steven Kaplan, the earl grey tea was incorporated in the recipe to complement the juniper and citrus notes of the spirit.
Described by Maverick Drinks as a “bergamot-forward” expression, the gin is said to give an aroma of coriander, lemon balm and rice paper followed by notes of “brewing earl grey”.
The palate is described as “elegant and refreshing” with earl grey, bergamot, citrus and fresh juniper notes leading to a “burst of cinnamon” on the finish.
Few Breakfast Gin is bottled at 42% abv and has an RRP of £45.95.
Few Spirits also producers a barrel-aged gin, Bourbon whiskey, rye whiskey and American gin.
