More Product Information
Crafted in honour of Britain’s fragrant botanicals, this refreshing gin is designed to be sipped al fresco.
If you’re lucky enough to have a garden, the season of sizzling barbecues and picnics on petal-strewn lawns has finally arrived (even if this isn’t how we imagined it). It’s also the time of year when our resident green-fingered gardeners – Distillery Manager Reece and Master Distiller Jared – see their flowerbeds, vegetable patches and herb gardens burst into life, and with more time than usual to be pottering in the garden, this year is bringing a luscious yield.
In honour of Britain’s fragrant botanicals, we came up with this summertime gin featuring basil, lemon thyme, coriander, fennel and rosemary. Step into your own herb garden by pouring a 50ml serve into an ice-filled highball glass and combine with Mediterranean tonic. Top it off with a basil leaf, then take a sip and close your eyes. You can almost hear bees buzzing between blooms under the summer sun.
The Nose:Green grass with a delicate light citrus.
The Palate: Sweet herbal notes, light minty freshness, refreshing citrus.
The Finish: Long vegetal herbal notes, savoury and moreish
The addition of orange liqueur allows this supremely sippable aperitif to blossom.
