Our third edition launched in September 2021. It begins with producing a slightly spicy gin that we would make for our London Dry but also add star anise and allspice to the initial botanical mix.
Following distillation, Madagascan Bourbon vanilla pods, cloves, ginger root and more star anise and allspice are macerated in the gin for 5 days, infusing rich, deep soft spice flavours and beautiful burnt amber colour.
On the nose, you will get hints of charred orange peel, a touch of cracked black pepper, and sweet cinnamon rolls. Those elements absolutely follow through onto the palate, with waves of warming spice and a lovely sweetness from the vanilla.
It's a gin that you can treat as a rum or whisky for sipping neat on a cold winter's night or add to sparkling wine for a somewhat festive French 75 cocktail.
