Gordon Finest Beers : the strength of seduction joins forces with the power of persuasion. Gordon Finest Beers take their name from the Gordon clan, a Scottish House that dates back centuries. The Beers honour in particular Adam de Gordon, who distinguished himself in the thirteenth century at the side of King Louis IX of France, also known as Saint Louis. A few years later, that valorous Anglo-Norman received land in Aberdeenshire from King Robert I - "Robert the Bruce” - the father of Scottish independence.
It is to pay homage to this clan, one of the greatest, that John Martin and his direct descendent Anthony, have been refining the exclusive recipes of Gordon Finest Beers for over a century. The Beers’ Scottish origin and strength of character give them a mellow taste and an explosive temperament to be reckoned with.
Proudly sporting the thistle and its tartan, both key emblems reflecting its noble Scottish origins, Gordon has become an iconic brand. Its varied formats will satisfy the finest of connoisseurs and assume a proud position in the hallowed brotherhood of strong beers.
In the ranking of strong blond beers of this range, Gordon gives this brew the second place, cleverly justified by the effect of a flexible beer during the introduction, but tremendous during the progress of the tasting. It makes no immediate explosion, but is spread quickly in the whole palate and no element of the mouth is left without reaction. The dry bitterness takes hold of the middle of the tongue while the malt elements are released by the sides. It finds its force while you think you got it under control. This is its great strength and its power of seduction. A high quality product amongst the others in this range.
