Fords Gin Officers’ Reserve pays homage to the British Navy and its customs, following more in suit with the practice of creating an aged and over-proofed gin rather than solely high-proof.
Given it’s status as the cocktail gin, Fords Gin set out to expand their offering by enhancing the nine botanicals in Amontillado Sherry casks to produce a cocktail-forward navy strength gin meant to excite bartenders and provide at-home gin enthusiasts a new spirit to experience.

NoseJuniper, coriander and angelica root up front with developing layers of citrus, jasmine, and hints of vanilla in the back. Very pleasant on the nose, bright, and aromatic.
Front of PalateLight sweetness on tip of the tongue. Gentle introduction of the botanicals to follow. Notes of orris and angelica roots.
Mid-palateProminent mid-palate presence, with juniper oils on the center tongue and full aroma on top palate. Citrus oils excite the side palate beautifully. Under tongue stays dry yet animated. Excellent mid-palate structure to serve as base for mixing.
Body or Mouth FeelMedium body with rather fresh mouth feel and high dryness.
FinishLong, lingering finish of grapefruit rind and juniper with a balance of the floral notes.
