Nose: Perfumed, aromatic and smooth.
Palate: This gin slips over the palate with ease.
With tonic it sparkles; on ice with bitters its lively.
Cadenhead's Old Raj Gin is distinctive in that it contains a measure of saffron, the rare and costly spice derived from the crocus flower. In addition to a slightly spicy flavour, this also imparts a pale yellow colour to Old Raj.
The addition of saffron is undertaken personally by the Company Chairman in order to ensure a consistency in flavour and colour each time Old Raj is bottled.
