CATZ® Dry Gin 48,2 %
With great pride, we present CATZ® Dry Gin, distilled and developed in part by one of the oldest family-owned distilleries in the Netherlands. This company has long been known for its tradition and craftsmanship and is one of the very few distilleries that may carry the ‘World Class Distillery’ label. For over 225 years, the distillery in Schiedam has been distilling its own gins and other spirits in small copper pot stills.
Dutch Dry Gin
CATZ® Dry Gin is a new gin that brings an old Dutch brand back to life. A Dutch gin that is exceptionally aromatic and versatile, robust and balanced. A gin that melds all of the classical aspects in its own distinctive way in a unique palette of special botanicals. A gin that has been slowly developed over the past years, making no concessions in attaining its final quality.
By way of the individual distillation in copper kettles, the taste of each botanical comes to its optimal, full right. Individually, these botanicals can be clearly identified when tasted, but in combination, complex layers are formed with entirely new flavours. This makes CATZ® Dry Gin suitable for novice gin drinkers and at the same time, a gin full of complexities for the aficionados.
Recommended by the IBA, the International Bartenders Association.
The gin is fresh and slightly sweet to the nose: vanilla, orange and junipers with a hint of Earl Grey tea and a light salty aroma of angelica root. In the mouth, the gin slowly reveals its flavours: first the tones of bergamot, coriander and juniper. This is soon followed by the sweet and herbal tones of citrus, creamy vanilla and cinnamon with a light peppery finish wherein a subtle cardamom can be perceived. The finish is quite long, with soft tones of sweet citrus, juniper and a hint of anise delivering a rich reminder of the CATZ® Dry Gin palette.
