WHAT: Broker’s Gin Rating: NNN
WHERE: Surrey, England
WHY: Gin blather is always about the botanicals: juniper berries, coriander, orange peel, etc. It’s not unlike shopping for expensive soap. The gin X factor is the base alcohol spirit, which in this case is made from English wheat distilled in traditional pot stills, granting Broker’s distinctive body and richness. Look for the hat.
