Welcome to the Still Magic Podcast, your one-click audio stop for all things gin be it gin making, gin production, gin distilling, gin manufacturing, gin commercialising, gin tasting, gin drinking, gin steeping and everything else in between.
In this episode I explore the premise behind "What Makes a Great Gin" and my efforts in developing a fair and objective way to describe what this means.
This is a goal I would struggle to achieve by myself. Every magician needs an assistant so you will meet one of Still Magic's most ginthusiastic supporters, affectionately known as The Antipodean Harpie.
We put two of Britain's finest through their paces, illustrating where the contemporary meets the traditional;
Tanqueray London Dry Gin (since 1830)
William Chase GB (since 2006)
Be bold. Enjoy yourselves. Let's create the next gin narrative.
