A to Z of Gin: C

C is for citrus. Nearly all gins contain citrus in one form or another, whether peels or whole fruit, from grapefruit to bitter orange to lemon and lime. Ours contain gorgeous organic orange and lemon peel from the Cederberg

A to Z of Gin: B

B is for botanicals, which turn a vodka into gin. To be a gin, one of the botanicals – plants, flowers and herbs – must be juniper berries, which are added to the gin during distillation.   There are different ways of doing this, either soaked in the alcohol in the kettle of the still during distillation, or suspended in a botanicals basket in the vapour trail above the still. We make our gins using the London Dry “one shot” method, which means that all the botanicals are added at the same time (whether soaked in the alcohol or put in a botanical basket: we use a combination of these two) and nothing is done to the resulting alcohol after distillation Gin botanicals

A to Z of Gin: A

A is for alcoholics, without which gin wouldn’t be experiencing its current boom. Only joking: A is for Angelica Root, used in most gins, including ours. It’s a magic ingredient as it holds the flavours of all the other botanicals together – it essentially marries them together and holds them, giving the gin its substance Angelica
