A distinctively smooth, fragrant and fresh gin.
NEW for 2023!
In honour of Dutch Arctic explorer, Willem Barentsz, our jasmine and mandarin botanicals are inspired by his quest for a Northeastern trading route to China by way of the sea.
Distilled in small batches in London, our latest gin is delicately infused with natural mandarin peel and exotic jasmine flowers for a distinctively smooth and fresh taste.
The creamy texture of the rye provides a longer, rounded finish, whilst wheat adds complexity and brings out sweeter notes, which complement the fresh taste of natural mandarin peel and signature exotic jasmine flowers.
Unsurprisingly, mandarin is the first thing that greets the nose. However, it is not an excessively sweet and juicy note, more like someone peeling the skin off a fresh piece of fruit next to you. Zest and bittersweet citrus oils bounce off a faint aroma of floral jasmine, ending with a whisper of cinnamon.
The first sip is aromatic and fresh with a bright but controlled sweetness giving way to handfuls of fragrant jasmine. The tarter, zesty orange notes come through, supported by the nutty-sweetness of an angelica, liquorice, almond combo. The mandarin is certainly the main feature, with juniper nudging it along happily from the rear. However, thankfully neither the mandarin or jasmine are overpowering, with the citrus singing out beautifully when tonic is added.
A fresh and fruity Summer G&T, garnished with an orange twist.
Each 70cl bottle comes in a beautiful gift box.
