MOMBASA CLUB Gin 41,5%
London Dry Gin, England / Greater London, 70cl, Ref: 4468
Mombasa Club is inspired by a gin first created in 1888 and exclusively reserved for the English colonials in Mombasa. Made from a grain alcohol distilled four times, in which plants have been steeped - notably juniper, angelica and coriander as well as spices (cinnamon) and citrus fruits. It emerges heady on the nose, smooth on the palate and fruity in the finish.
Profile: liquorice and aniseed. Nutmeg and clove. Heady, balsamic (boiled sweets). Candied citrus fruit (lemon), cardamom tea. Flowers (peony, honeysuckle).

- Appearance : colourless.
- Nose : lively, striking. Liquorice and aniseed mingle with nutmeg and clove. This accounts for its thoroughly spiced character. Heady and balsamic (boiled sweets), it evolves into candied citrus fruits (lemon) and cardamom tea. A handful of flowers (peony, honeysuckle) provide the final flourish.
- Palate : solid, restrained. With the opening on the palate, new citrus fruits (orange, mandarin) take over. The mid-palate is remarkably smooth, fruity (pear, plum) and spiced (cinnamon, fresh coriander). A beautiful, invigorating bitterness takes the taster on to the finish.
- Overall : creamy, gourmand. Radiant, full of presence and maturity, one fruit overpowers them all: white grape. Its skin is coated in a fine layer of curry powder. The retronasal olfaction highlights a second fruit, melon, as well as floral notes (orange blossom). Once empty, the glass hints at saffron.
- The brand
The brandlocated just in front of the Zanzibar Island, Mombasa has become due to its strategic location the main port and commercial center for the whole of East Africa, turning it into a place where the civilised colonial world mixed with the magic and mystery of the exotic African world. Initially produced for the first private social club in Kenya, The Mombasa Club was founded in 1885 by officials of The British East Africa Protectorate and was exclusively for Englishmen. Mombasa Club Gin is distilled using traditional methods, with the botanicals immersed in the spirit and batch distillation, using neutral alcohol that has previously been distilled four times and with a selection of natural ingredients including clove and cumin.
