What can I tell you about this zesty gin which has not already been said? I first discovered this gin in a swap from a fellow gin drinker. I served as suggested with lots of ice and my favourite tonic, Schweppes Crisp Tonic Water. I garnished with tangerine peel and black peppercorns. This fabulous, juniper led gin includes some beautiful botanicals such as lemon, lime and tangerine peel, these are what gives the gin its refreshing, citrusy flavour.
This gorgeous bottle, emblazoned with a portrait of Charles Burrell himself, had to join the others in Grandma’s Gin Parlour. I ordered on line and was pleasantly surprised by the speedy delivery. The bottle arrived wrapped in eco-friendly honeycomb paper and I couldn’t wait to open it. The first serve from my new bottle was again paired with Schweppes Crisp Tonic Water, and this time I served with a wedge of orange to further enhance the citrus flavour. I am looking forward to Marie Jeanne’s Pink Gin, which will certainly be one of my next purchases. This full-bodied gin with 43% ABV will certainly lift your spirits!
I came across this gin because of the Round of Gin website.
While writing up reviews I was introduced to the Master distiller Tristan Jørgensen, who has produced two beautiful Gins-Marie Jeanne Pink Gin & Burrells Dry gin.
Deep in the heart of the Lincolnshire Wolds is the beautiful South Ormsby Estate, where these gins are Hand-crafted & distilled. Tristan Jørgensen is a very knowledgeable distiller, with well-developed sensory skills for tasting and evaluating spirits. Given his background which stretches back working with different distillers i.e Laphroaig Distillery just to name one he has gained advanced knowledge of all processes involved with distillation and taste.
With all this in mind, his aim with these gins is to ” Take your palate on a journey”. Which once you’ve tried them you’ll understand that they really do. I’ll start with the Marie Jeanne Pink Gin, as the saying goes “Ladies first”. This gin is inspired by Marie Jeanne who was an inspirational woman, not only did she live until she was 99 years old, she defied expectations by taking charge of the Estate. Tristan Jørgensen, inspired by the history, wanted to convey the beauty of this in a gin. Now normally when you think of a Pink gin you think of balloon glasses with lots of berries and a girls night out or summer’s day. But Marie Jeanne Pink Gin, has blown that thought out of the water.
For the traditional gin lovers, this gin will be more up your street. When you open a bottle after the amazing pop, you are met with a beautiful burst of fresh red berries. Of course, a pink Gin is typically a sweeter fruit taste, But this gin definitely pushes the boundaries between a dry gin and a pink gin. When you take a sip you are instantly met with piney notes of juniper followed by a sweet spice from the pink peppercorns with the after taste being of the 3 types of berries lingering then mellowing out, which almost gives you a marshmallow afterthought. The perfect serve with this gin would be a tall glass with a light tonic , a whole fresh slice of lime, fresh raspberries and a sprig of mint.
Now the Burrell’s Dry Gin this is definitely a traditional, juniper led, London Dry Gin. Again, Tristan using the history of the estate, he tried to convey “Charles Burrell Massingberd’s desire to combine fresh, modern taste with traditional elegance.” Now this gin is definitely what I was referring to by his reference of to ” Take your palate on a journey”.
Another beautiful pop when you open the bottle and straight away you are met with the punchy, piney scent of juniper berries. This smooth and almost oily ( in the sense of it coats your mouth with all the beautiful botanicals ) Now, there is no escape from the punch of the juniper , but it is relaxed with the 3 types of citrus fruits that bursting through giving you a zesty twist which flows to finish you have. Which is a fresh crisp apple with flora notes of elderflowers left lingering on your palate. Definitely a statement gin and well crafted all round, being sure you can taste all the botanicals.
These gins come in absolutely stunning bottles ,ones i will definitely not be throwing away. They portray the history and elegance of the couple beautifully. They are a fair price for a craft gin, with amazingly quick delivery. These craft gins are a great addition to anyone’s collection or an even beautiful his/hers present.
All in all A 10/10 review from me.
Burrell’s Gin is made not far from me as the crow flies in the Lincolnshire Wolds. So, I was very excited to support a local distiller. Neither the gin or the bottle disappoints. The bottle is elegant and I can safely say I’ll be reusing that when its empty.
Massingberd-Mundy Burrell’s Dry Gin is a superb all rounder. A gin made with 14 botanicals with apples and elderflowers harvested from the South Ormsby Estate where the Distillery is located. A smooth creamy juniper led gin with citrus from lemon, lime and tangerine peel.
Floral from elderflower but sweetness from the liquorice. A gin that is perfect for a large G & T served with a good light tonic, orange and black and pink peppercorns but equally this gin lends itself to being a base for a fab cocktail. I’ve used it to make a Bramble and a Martini. Delicious. A 43V with a price tag of around £39.
Massingberd-Mundy;s Burrell’s Dry Gin is lovely! The bottle itself is a work of art. The rear label has a picture of Charles Massingberd-Mundy, one of the founding owners of the South Ormsby estate, and is bright and colourful. This really is a truly eye-catching bottle on the gin shelf. There’s a lovely chunky cork and the printed bottle title adds a real elegance to it. This is not a supermarket gin!
The gin itself is 43% abv and comes in a 70cl bottle. It currently retails at £39 a bottle but this is a real quality gin. You can’t help but feel that you are getting something special for your cash. On the nose, this is a juniper-forward gin. There is a definite sweetness with a warming hint of spice. Tasted neat, there is a creamy sweetness to this gin. The spiciness of the juniper adds a real warmth when neat over ice. Tristan will tell me otherwise, but I was convinced I could taste almonds or vanilla, which makes way for a real peppery finish.
Tristan, the distiller, tells me the botanicals, apart from the obvious, are apple from the distillery garden, elderflower, cassia bark, cubeb, tangerine, lemon, lime and bay. This is a really tasty gin. When we were tasting, Tristan suggested pairing with either tangerine and black peppercorns (his perfect serve) or tangerine and mint. I have to be honest, while I like both, I would have to agree and go with the peppercorns. As a gin and tonic, I served with Artisan Drinks’ Skinny London Tonic, a slice of orange and black peppercorns. There is a crisp dryness to this G&T; the orange marries beautifully with the peppercorns to give a wonderfully balanced drink. This is perfect for the afternoon sipping in the sunshine.
