EP 41 - The Gin Invasion
Gin has exploded in recent years, especially in the United Kingdom. The Lushes jump in this week to learn all they can about the history, distillation and growth of gin. They are joined by Rob Patchett who is the Regional Sales Director for central England for the Cotswolds Distillery.
The bucolic Cotswolds Distillery is situated in quite possibly the most beautiful part of England. Rob, who might have the manliest beard in the entire distilled spirits world, covers all the basics of Genever, London dry, Old Tom, Plymouth, & Navy Strength Gins as well what gives each of them their unique characteristics. Join us this week as we discuss an incredibly diverse spirit that is pushing the boundaries of spirit innovation and creating new fans in droves. As a bonus, we also talk about Cotswold whisky which is getting rave reviews as it begins to roll out of the barrels.
