Bulldog Ultra-Premium Gin

This is Not Your GRANDFather’s Gindining-bulldog-gin

By Rick Garner

The Gin category has just gotten a major overhaul with the arrival of Ultra Premium Bulldog London Dry Gin. Having launched auspiciously in the Chinese “Year of the Dog,” Bulldog stands to be one of the proudest and most exciting new additions to the spirits market. Quadruple distilled, Bulldog carries an exotic mélange of botanical flavors including licorice, lavender, lotus leaves, poppy and Dragon Eye, giving it an incredibly seductive and unique fruit and citrus bouquet. Hand-crafted in London, Bulldog is a London Dry Distilled Gin, infused with the taste and aromas of its selected botanicals, using traditional copper pot stills. As part of the process, gin is passed through a condenser and liquefied to produce the natural and unmistakable essence of this ultra premium spirit. It exhibits a smooth and harmonious texture, with a distinctive flavor and refreshingly crisp character. Rumored to improve skin vitality and act as an aphrodisiac, Dragon Eye ~ a cousin of the lychee fruit~ is just one of the many uncommon elements in Bulldog. With its smoked-grey tinting, broad shoulders, and iconic spiked collar around its neck, Bulldog Gin is housed in an eye-catching bottle that is sure to be a conversation piece.

Bulldog Gin has partnered with the top spirit industry leaders to create this season’s premier cocktails. Renowned mixologists Somer Perez, John Freeman, and Michael Waterhouse incorporate their individual techniques in over fifteen unique Bulldog Gin creations. Here are three that will definitely whet your appetite and beckon your palate.
