Martin Miller's unveils 9 Moons Solera Reserve

Martin Miller's Gin has launched the next expression in its Moons range — 9 Moons Solera Reserve.

Martin Miller's claims that its new release features two innovations; firstly the use of French oak barrels in the ageing process rather than American oak ex-Bourbon casks. Second is the use of a new solera vatting process to ensure consistency.

This second stage of the process has been introduced in response to the variances between different batches and barrels of 9 Moons Gin, which led to the first ever 9 Moons bottles being labelled as single cask. In contrast, the Solera method gradually increases the average age of the gin.

The 9 Moons Solera Reserve uses the same botanicals as Martin Miller's Gin. Solera Reserve is aged for nine months in Iceland. 

David Bromige, co-founder, Martin Miller's Gin, says: "Following the success of the 9 Moons Single Cask, we have been continuously evaluating and testing methods which would allow us to regularly produce a variety of the same high standard. We are delighted that, through the Solera Vat process, we can introduce the 9 Moons Solera Reserve to our consumers which will allow them to enjoy the same quality and flavour profile with each new bottle."

Martin Miller's says that the focus for the new release will be prestige on-trade accounts, who will be encouraged to serve the brand's Martinez serve.

The 9 Moons Solera Reserve will be packaged in a new presentation box which allows full visibility of the bottle. The product is available in select prestige retail and bars with a RRP of £50 for a 35cl bottle.
