Tasting Notes for Del Professore Gin Monsieur

Del Professore Gin Monsieur is completely different to any other gin on the market, with intense notes of juniper and an incredible, highly spiced, aromatic profile with notes of cardamom, lavander, camomile and orange. There is a lovely natural sweetness present from the infusion of sweet spices like cinnamon and vanilla which give the gin a delicious softness and round mouthfeel.

 

  • Del Professore gin embodies the spirit of the Italian herbal tradition. The production method, known as the "bathtub", dates back to the Prohibition era, in which a container, even a bathtub, was enough to mix alcohol distillates and various herbs, spices and peels in cold infusion. The production is totally handmade and that is why very few bottles are available for each batch. The Professor's Gin brand includes Professor À La Madame's Gin and Professor Monsieur's Gin. The recipe includes a skilful blend of herbs and spices including Tuscan and Umbrian juniper, lavender, angelica, rose, chamomile and others, which, emphasized by the sweetness of the infusion with cinnamon and vanilla, give life to an unusual product with intense floral notes.

  • The Jerry Thomas Project produce two types of Gin del Professore, the Monsieur, with a more classic gin profile of juniper and citrus, and the Madame, with an extra layer of sweeter spiced aromas of cinnamon, vanilla and wild rose. Both gins represent the rediscovery of a lost style of gin production: the making of the ‘Bathtub Gin’. These were gins produced illegally during the American Prohibition, either at home, at Speakeasies or in distilleries. The gins were often fairly poor quality, so the Jerry Thomas producers wanted to bring the concept of the Bathtub Gin back into being, but to a very high quality, using artisanal methods and high quality ingredients. Retracing the same techniques they use for their vermouth, the creation of the gin starts with blending a juniper distillate into an infusion of herbs and spices with the aim of obtaining a deep complexity of aromas. Neither gins are industrially filtered and therefore they maintain their original amber colour gained from the spice infusion.
