The Reposado is carefully rested in a combination of new and used French limousine oak barrels for a minimum of eight months and up to two years. This ensures that the resulting spirit is the perfect balance between agave notes and those from the barrel.
NOSE Immediately very fruity – red fruits, especially cherries, and jam. The sweetness of cooked agave enhances the fruitiness, with delicate herbal notes providing a balancing counterpoint.
PALATE The French oak influence becomes obvious on the palate, with rich caramel, maple syrup and creamy vanilla flavours. With those is fruity dark chocolate, some of the jam from the nose, although deep in the mix, and gentle spiciness.
FINISH The cask influence is felt yet again in the finish, where agave pepperiness quickly fades to vanilla.
Strikingly smooth to taste and beautiful to behold in its iconic Bristol-blue glass bottle, this original, multi-award-winning 6 O’clock Gin was born in 2010, perfected from an old family gin recipe.
It has a soft and citrusy flavour, led by juniper, carefully balanced with coriander seed, angelica root, orris root, winter savory, elderflower and orange peel, all lovingly distilled for a deeply-delicious taste experience.
