The Story

To achieve this extraordinarily and almost fruity smoked gin, Master Distiller Jared built a (slightly mad) smoking contraption in his back garden, resembling something halfway between a steam engine and a shisha pipe. Stoking it with cherry wood, then bubbling the warm smoke through our gin, transforms our classic London Dry into this smokey phenomena. To get to this beautifully light bonfire gin, Jared tried stoking his smoking contraption with different types of wood, settling on cherry wood after dozens of different trials. He also dampened the wood chips before using them to produce a thick mass of smoke.

Tasting notes

The Nose
Smoked wood with rich chestnut, subsiding into grilled bananas and fireworks.

The Palate
Dark chocolate, smoked paprika and English BBQs.

The Finish
Rich peaty notes, lending itself to a smokey leathery ending.

    I love to mix this with Sipsmith Sloe Gin and shake with ice, lemon juice and sugar syrup to make a kind of martini. Or a ‘Smoke-tini’.

    Loved the cocktails suggestion for a Smoke-Tini, rich and smokey, perfect for a winter drink by the fire.

    Bonfire Night in a glass – the Smoke-Tini was fantastic 🙂
