More Product Information
As we celebrate 155 years since the writing of the fantastical Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, the famous novel by Lewis Carroll, the Sipsmith distillers take a trip down the rabbit hole with their choice of botanicals in this one-of-a-kind gin.
Our Mad Hatter’s Gin will transport you to another world with its floral and light flavours which Alice might have enjoyed at the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party. The meadowsweet gives hues of grassy honey which balances perfectly against the juniper backbone. Vapour infused fresh lime peel and orange blossom add bright and floral citrus flavours, contrasted perfectly by the herbal thyme and floral marigold added to the still on the morning of distillation. This gives way to a lingering bitterness from the calamus root that rounds off this magical liquid.
With this lightly floral and grassy liquid you’ll be more than tempted to take a seat at the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party for a tipple or two by adding 50ml Mad Hatter’s Gin to an ice-filled highball and topping with chilled premium tonic water and a fresh wedge of orange to garnish.
The Nose: Rich, herbaceous and floral.
The Palate: A light fruitiness, followed by notes of white tea.
The Finish: long and light tannic, with a lasting bitterness from the citrus peel.
