  • Bathtub Gin

    43,3% || Ableforth’s

    First, copper pot-distilled gin is made with juniper, coriander and other fragrant botanicals, but we don’t stop there. Instead, we take a portion of this gin and painstakingly infuse it with a further six fresh botanicals – a process which takes a whole week to do.

    This infusion process allows those fresh botanical flavours – too delicate to survive traditional distillation – to shine through, and Bathtub Gin is left with its unique flavour and distinctive hue.

    Nose: Fresh and bold juniper leads the way with fragrant citrus and cardamom. Notes of fresh orange peel and cinnamon add to an enticing nose.

    Taste: Juniper again leads, but there’s plenty more besides. The mouthfeel is thick and creamy whilst the cloves, coriander and cardamom offer depth.

    Finish: Here the supporting botanicals really shine with lingering cardamom and orange peel on the tail.

  • Cherry Gin

    46% || That Boutique-y Gin company

    Fruit gins were once all the rage: lemon gin, orange gin, even asparagus gin once graced the shelves of liquor stores the world over. Now, they’re back with The Boutique-y Gin Company Cherry Gin. We’ve taken a Classic Gin and added a combination of sweet and sour marasca cherries, as well as a good pinch of spice. A fun and fruity gin, this is delicious as a sipper, but eminently mixable, too; try it with a splash of cola and a wedge of lime for a taste sensation.

    Nose: Plump and juicy – homemade cherry pie with a generous scoop of vanilla ice-cream.
    Taste: The succulent fruity sweetness of cherry, a touch of spice, and a slight citrus tang.
    Finish: The lingering tartness of sour cherries, accompanied by the juniper berry, which makes an encore appearance.

  • Cobnut Ghost Gin – Greensand Ridge Distillery

    46% || That Boutique-y Gin Company

    This gin is a bit of a mash-up of Greensand Ridge Distillery’s London Dry Gin and their Raspberry Ghost. The gin has a selection of locally-sourced ingredients, such as cobnut (squirrels are nuts for them), rosehip, honey, and hawthorne berries. The raspberry ghost is more fruity than spooky: it is a mix of raspberry juice and wheat spirit that is then distilled.

    This edition has a re-jigged botanical mix – less spice and less cobnut (leaving more for the critters), but has a fruity twist in the addition of surplus raspberry juice and quince to the still.

    Tasting notes:
    Nose: Boom! There’s raspberry, bright and invigorating, followed by a leafy nuttiness.

    Taste: Bold flavours of fresh raspberries dusted with absinthe-soaked sugar.

    Finish: Cinnamon sugar, succulent fruits, and a dry, liquorice and menthol finish.
