Professor Cornelius Ampleforth
Even before he earned his degree and title of “Professor” Cornelius Ampleforth was a slightly-mad wide-eyed inventor. He had big dreams of a running a big laboratory with miles and miles of botanicals spirits bubbling beakers glass vials and bottles and in the Autumn of 2011 his dreams were realised with the release of his now infamous Bathtub Gin. The tireless Professor continues to create anything he can imagine from a 91.2% Cold-Distilled Absinthe to a Cask-Aged Gin—there is literally nothing that can deter this gentleman from his experiments!
The use of the spiced botanicals (coriander, cloves and cardamom) adds a great depth to the drink whilst creating a creamy mouth feel.
This is a delightfully smooth and rather viscous number that, whilst delivering plenty of robust flavours, can most definitely be enjoyed on its own.
