Father Day Unique Gift - Martin Millers Gin

Born of “Love, Obsession and some degree of Madness,” Martin Miller’s Gin is the most super premium gin in the world and a perfect Father’s Day present for the last minute shopper. Available at most BevMos and Total Wine and Mores, Martin Miller’s Gin is a gift that dads can enjoy the whole year round!

Founder Martin Miller was left unsatisfied by sad looking gin & tonics and limp looking lemon slices. Setting out to re-invent the quintessential British tipple, Miller created a gin that was made with not only the best ingredients but distilled by using only the most traditional methods. Unlike all but a handful of gins, Martin Miller’s batch is distilled, like malt whiskey, using a traditional pot still method. Miller’s employs two separate distillations- one for juniper and earthy botanicals and one for the citrus peels. In the process of the distilling, they keep only the “heart” of the spirit and it is shipped off to Iceland to be blended with the purest, unprocessed spring water to create a marriage of rare softness, clarity of taste and appearance.

Martin Miller’s Gin’s familiar botanicals—juniper, coriander, angelica, and Florentine Iris- coupled with the more unusual cassia, cinnamon bark, and liquorice, are blended with Seville orange peel and lime. It is also the first gin to use cucumber in its recipe as a ‘functional ingredient’ giving Martin’s Gin its unique and characteristic long, dry and fresh finish.

With no advertising behind them and still proudly independent, Martin Miller is a titan of industry, with Martin Miller’s Gin growing at an average rate of 100% per year in China, Middle East, Australia, Southeast Asia and Spain. This huge growth rate in Spain is mirrored in the US. Martin Miller’s Gin was the first of the “new wave” of gins and entered the market in 1999. It has earned the most top awards of any other premium gin including taking home two out of three possible gold medals in the blind-tasting 10th Anniversary Strength gins by the International Spirits Challenge. At this year’s Wine & Spirits Wholesalers Convention, Martin Miller’s Gin took home Double Gold in the Spirits Tasting Competition, Best Gin in Show and Best White Spirit in Show!
