the best of both gins

November 12, 2011 in Food

After researching different gins Cameron and I decided to do a head-to-head taste test.

We chose 2 top contenders from a list of fine brands.

Blade: because we live a short drive from where it is produced and their family style distillery makes it seem more romantic.

Martin Miller’s: because their goal was to make the best gin at no expense spared and they ship theirs to Iceland before bringing it to proof.

The winner:  MARTIN MILLER’S

While Blade gin has a distinctive, sharp, almost spicy quality that is quite unique Martin Miller’s is possibly the smoothest, most drinkable gin I have ever tried. This is the ultimate martini gin!
