'Occitan' is Bordiga's London Dry Gin, which they have made continuously since 1900 – Italy's oldest known gin recipe.
It has a classic juniper lift, with a fragrant and quite perfumed nose that's accented with distinct orange and lemon rind notes. In fact, there are just six botanicals used in this gin: the wild juniper gathered from the isolated valleys of the Maritime Alps, angelica root, cardamom, coriander, and lemon and orange peel.
This is at once classic and distinctively individual, with the purity and intensity of the botanicals giving this remarkable cut and clarity.
A great mixing gin, but also one with the detail and finesse to justify a martini.
