LADOGA's Barrister Dry Gin received a gold medal, the title of "Exceptional" and "Best Buy" scoring 94 points out of 100 possible in a blind tasting. Moreover, its novelty Barrister Organic Gin was awarded a silver medal with a score of 89 and the comment "Highly recommended".
Barrister Dry was described in the tasting notes as "Сlear color. Aromas and flavors of candied lemon and key lime peels, frosted spice cake, turmeric, and Thai basil with a silky, bright, fruity medium body and a tingling, interesting, medium-long finish with overtones of pickled watermelon and clementine. A refreshing delicious and citrus-and-herb-forward gin that will be great in a Collin or long drinks".
