"Go, Bulldog!" Could Rally Gin Lovers in Georgia

“Go, Bulldogs!” is a popular slogan among football fans (fanatics?) in Georgia. Well, here comes “Go, Bulldog!” It could well become a rallying cry among local bar hoppers and pub crawlers, now that Bulldog Gin is available in Georgia. In the U.S., it’s also sold in the New York metro area, New Jersey, Connecticut and Florida. This British gin is the brainchild of former investment banker Anshuman Vohra and David Kanbar, a veteran in the liquor industry.

Vohra made an intriguing claim when Bulldog Gin was launched in 2006. “Being Indian, gin is practically in my blood,” he declared. Whatever one may think of his remark, it’s true that the British Raj (if not India) played a role in popularizing gin and tonic. When quinine was discovered as a cure for malaria, the medicine (i.e., tonic) was mixed with gin to make it more drinkable. So it’s not just liquor lovers who developed an affinity for gin.

Quadruple distilled in copper pot stills (a rare method these days), the Bulldog Gin’s unique flavor comes from the following ingredients: Longan (dragon eye), poppy, lotus leaves, cassia, lemon, almond, lavender, orris, liquorice, angelica, coriander and juniper. And what does this clear liquor taste like? “Medium weight body with a pleasant aromatic blend of spices, mild tingling on the lips and tongue lingering finish,” according to Spirits Review, which adds: “Very clean, with a very interesting mixture of spices, including cinnamon and cardamom. Slight warming burn on the way down.” Cheers!
