Aatta Gin is the first distilled gin from the Orkney Gin Company. Aatta in Old Norse means ‘Eight’. This gin is distilled eight times on the still to create a smooth, silky mouthfeel and truly balanced gin distilled over 24 hours using eight botanicals in the distillation. Zesty oranges, hand picked rosehips, piney juniper and vanilla combine to create a flavour profile that delivers notes of juniper, bright citrus and refreshing, sweet vanilla notes. The gin is also presented in a custom bottle that creates an optical illusion of the famous mystical Kelpie rising from the deep blue shimmering ocean.
|Where's it from?||Orkney, Scotland|
|Pairing/Garnish||A slice of clementine, a sprig of rosemary, tonic and ice.|
I was given this as a present. I am not a gin expert having been brought up on Gordon's Dry Gin. However, this immediately caught my attention on first taste as being something really rather special. I lack the expertise to describe why, but it had an immediacy and presence that made you sit up. The blenders of this Gin certainly know what they are doing and I can highly recommend it. Sorry Gordon's, I have found a new home.
