Review: Top Beverages CBD Classic Gin

Featured Image for Review: Top Beverages CBD Classic Gin

Created using traditional gin botanicals from coriander seeds, angelica root, orris and, of course, juniper, this unique gin has also been infused with 50 mg premium full spectrum THC-free CBD.


A Little Bit of Background

Pioneers of CBD infused craft spirits, Top Beverages began life at a Barcelona bus stop, where an Englishman, Saf Ali, and an American, Nicholas Pullen, met and decided to leave their current working environments and set up a beverage company.

This pair, however, would not try to carve out a business in the already busy drinks market, the two intrepid idealists instead decided to develop a collection of spirits fuelled by THC-free CBD, of which they were both users and major proponents.

The goal of creating a range of delicious tipples infused with CBD traveled across more than 30 countries and four continents, where ingredients were sampled and sourced to create a profile gin lovers will embrace.

The ingredients were all brought to their distillery based in Scotland where experiments began to distill a clean, crisp and smooth Navy Strength 54.5% spirit every pallet could enjoy.

Each distillation creates just 500 bottles to ensure that each drop meets Top Beverages rigorous and exacting standards.

The Bottle

Each bottle has been handcrafted using beautiful Italian glass and resembles a perfume or aftershave bottle, rather than a traditional spirits one.

Solid, sturdy and elegant, the bottle doesn’t try anything too fancy with its subtle messaging and understated imagery.

The label lists a selection of key botanicals, with CBD listed clearly for browsers to notice, along with a small amount of information about the gin and distillery.

To keep the gin safe, the top of the bottle is not a typical screw-cap, rather it has a cork-like stopper to further reinforce its elegant, alternative beauty.

The Perfect Serve

CBD Classic Gin will perfectly pair with Fever-Tree Aromatic tonic or any tonic with a fresh lemon, lime or orange or all three!

The Gin

 

On the Nose

It has a simple initial scent; there’s a subtle hint of sweetness from the orange, lemon and lime ingredients, traditional earthy notes and that familiar gin-aura from the coriander, juniper and angelica root.

Straight

Over ice, the gin sits softly in a glass, unremarkable to look at but very pleasant to sip.

Drinkers will catch all of the botanicals, along with hints of citrus from the orange, lemon and lime, and leave you enjoying a CBD infused, relaxing drink.

The strong Navy Strength 54.5 alcohol content is potent yet still smooth enough to enjoy on ice.

With Mixer

Mixing with a dash of Slimline Indian Tonic Water and a citrus garnish, the result is a beautifully crisp and sharp gin.

The power of the Navy Strength slowly diminishes with every sip, transforming into a sharp and crisp drink that encapsulates every flavour gin lovers will recognise and love.

There are no lingering aftertastes or bitter scents, all of the carefully sourced ingredients can be felt, making for an easy-to-drink everyday spirit.

Lasting Impressions

Top Beverages CBD Gin have created a gin unlike any currently on the market.

The complex distilling process, combined with the handcraft nature of each bottle and the full spectrum CBD ingredients make this gin a truly unique concept and taste.

Top Beverages CBD Gin’s versatility and uniqueness will allow drinkers to incorporate the light and refreshing spirit into refreshing gin cocktails, winter warmers, and even as a small nightcap.
