More Product Information
Promising to put a spring in your step (or should we say a hop?) let this seasonal sip transport you to the countryside.
From the sound of rustling ryegrass to the sight of fields filled with golden crops and the scent of wildflower meadows – where bees buzz between the blooms – this gin bursts with the promise of brighter days to come. Made with British-grown Admiral hops, which are renowned for their resinous quality, marigold flowers and wild-fermented Saison beer, the distilled liquid is rested on ryegrass hay and fresh lemon peel. Experience the essence of a walk in the countryside by crafting a Tom Collins. Combine 50ml Hops ‘n’ Hay Gin, 25ml lemon juice and 20ml sugar syrup in a Tom Collins glass.
Stir, fill partway with ice and top with soda water. Garnish with a lemon slice and enjoy this refreshing cocktail’s enlivening effervescence.
The Nose: Light, refreshing citrusy hops.
The Palate: Rich juniper and dry hay with a grapefruit twist.
The Finish: A lingering hoppy, resinous funk.
