Martin Miller?s London Dry Gin is so ingenious, it?s almost insane
Martin Miller?s London Dry Gin has quite the story attached to it. It all started back in 1999 when Martin Miller, David Bromige, and Andreas Versteegh decided to change the way people think about gin. The result is so ingenious that it borders on madness.
Martin Miller?s is distilled differently from your standard dry gin. Normally, the gin is distilled using 3 copper pots: one for the ?heads?, one for the ?tails?, and one for the ?heart?. The heads and tails are of a low quality and are directed away from the ?heart? during the first round of distillation. Usually these two parts are then improved so that they can join the rest of the spirit. During distillation, the vapour is passed through a ?berry tray?. The tray holds the gin?s botanicals, usually in a package, and the vapour extracts the flavours and aromas. With Martin Miller?s, it?s a little bit different. The dry gin is produced using one pot, Angela. Angela was made at the end of the 19th Century and is considered to be the ?Rolls Royce? of gin stills. The heads and tails do not enter into the gin, meaning only the heart is kept from distillation. There is also no berry tray; in true London tradition, tea-making plays a part in this gin?s production. The botanicals are treated like loose tea and are left to steep overnight in the spirit; no teabags allowed. To make the process more effective, the peels from citrus fruits, which go into the London dry gin, are distilled separately from the more earthy ingredients, like juniper, coriander, and cassia. This method makes Martin Miller?s well-balanced and accentuates the citrus notes.
To make Martin Miller?s all the more exciting, water from Iceland is used. Iceland is the little country on the edge of the world; shrouded in mystery and elegantly beautiful. Far, far away from London, the country is home to unpolluted, fresh water. Sourced from Snæfellsjökul, referred to in Jules Verne?s ?Journey to the Centre of the Earth?, the icy cold water is blended into Martin Miller?s to create a soft gin with exceptional clarity. It doesn?t get much better than that!
