Welcome to the Gin blogger, the place for all things related to gin!

Jaffa Cake Gin it is, then …

I was browsing the internet looking for some new gin to try, when I fell upon an article about the most expensive gins in the world.  Being naturally curious – and easily distracted, I had to have a look.  And it is, according to Threshers, Jam Jar Gin Morus LXIV, England.

At more than £4,000 a bottle, this 64% ABV tipple is considered to be the most valuable in the world, particularly because it is distilled from the leaves of a particular century-old mulberry tree.

And we gin-thusiasts would, apparently, appreciate the complexity of Morus LXIV’s flavour profile, which boasts a smoky sweetness, intense juniper and citrus zest oils.

Made in very small batches, this exclusive gin comes in a 70cl bottle plus 3cl porcelain jar, along with a stirrup cup wrapped in fine hide leather – all presented in a luxury gift box.

I went back to Master of Malt and purchased a bottle of Jaffa Cake Gin, at a heady £27.95 a bottle – plus postage.  Review coming soon …
