The Spiced Dry Gin is made with nine botanicals including ginger and grains of paradise that makes for a peppery taste that is not for the faint hearted. Indeed, Sadler’s has specifically designed this gin to suit Indian cuisine! And completing the range there’s a Black Spiced Rum – small batched, aged in ex-ximenez casks and brought up to date with selected spices including orange, nutmeg, vanilla and raisin for a truly distinctive finish of well balanced spices and sweetness. halewood-int.com
