The Cotswolds Dry Gin is a delectable blend of nine carefully-considered botanicals, including lavender from the Cotswolds and freshly-peeled pink grapefruit and lime zest. Using over 10 times the amount of botanicals, which causes a beautiful pearlescent cloud to appear when ice or tonic is added, known as The Cloudy G&T.
COTSWOLD DRY GIN
The finest ingredients
Quality – it’s what the nine carefully selected botanicals that go into the Cotswold gin all have in common. Juniper berries, coriander seed and angelica root form the classic foundation for the London Dry-style Gin. The distillerrs then add Cotswolds lavender from Snowshill and bay leaves. The citrus element comes from freshly-peeled lime and pink grapefruit zest - unusually we use fresh peels rather than dried because of the greater quantity of essential oils. This entails peeling several hundred limes and grapefruits per week, by hand! The final botanicals are cardamom seed and black peppercorn, to give a hint of spice. Tough work, but totally worth it for the vibrant flavours and rich mouthfeel that make our gin stand out from the crowd.
Nose: Fresh notes of grapefruit with earthy coriander backed-up by sweet, piney juniper. A hint of perfumed Cotswolds lavender.
Palate: Clean, pine juniper spice with fresh citrussy grapefruit. A touch of dryness from the angelica root, with eucalyptus notes from bay leaf. Subtle lime and lavender.
Finish: Clean and balanced. Juniper, citrus and some cooling notes from bay leaf and cardamom.
