THL: What is it?
Nolet's is a New Western Style of Gin distilled with Turkish roses, peaches and raspberries.
THL: Why should you try it?
The Nolet family has been distilling hooch for over 300 years and passed recipes from father to son for 10 generations. The 11th generation sons, Carl Jr. and Bob Nolet decided to make the adjustment to the traditional gin recipe developed by their forefathers for a modern twist on a traditional dry gin.
The Nolet family also produce the wildly successful Ketel One Vodka, and use the same wheat to produce their gin. They individually distill each ingredient separately for maximum control when crafting their gin. The complete recipe is kept a secret, but they do reveal three signature ingredients: Turkish rose, raspberry, and peach.
THL: Who makes it?
Nolet’s Silver Dry Gin is produced by Nolet Distillery in Schiedam, Holland. The family tradition of distilling has passed from father to son for 10 generations and is currently managed by Carolus and his sons, Carl Jr. and Bob. Nolet also produces Ketel One vodkas and genever.
THL: What does it taste like?
Nolet’s Silver Dry Gin is reminiscent of fine rose perfume. This is a good thing for those who like the smell of roses, bad for those who like their gin to smell like a Douglas Fir tree. Nolet’s Silver Dry Gin is a true New World gin with radical flavor profile that will leave traditional London Dry fans aghast. That’s not to say you can’t taste a nice dose of the juniper berries; it’s just that they don’t stand front and center. Those willing to tread into unfamiliar territory will be rewarded for their bravery as Nolet’s Gin is one fine bottle of hooch.
THL: How should you drink it?
We say keep your cocktail simple - Nolet's itself will add plenty of depth to any drink you make.
