Step Inside the Wonderful World of Botanicals…
With hundreds of Botanicals up for grabs, the potential flavour combinations and individual measurements of herbs, spices, flowers, roots, fruits, seeds and berries are infinite! From the traditional to the unique, it takes time and dedication (and lots of strenuous taste testing) to find the perfect blend. The possibilities and complexities are endless, which is why we are always excited to produce our next unique gin…
The quintessential botanical. No juniper berries, no gin!
Thankfully we include an abundance of these pungent little berries! Fragrant and spicy with hints of lavender and pepper, Juniper provide an aroma of pine and fruit, while giving a slightly bittersweet taste on the palate.
Coriander is the second most important botanical in gin.
Fragrant and aromatic, with a slight spice and a hint of lemon on the nose.
These contrasting notes provide a balance of sharp citrus and mellow aromatics.
Orange & Lemon Peel
Adding a fresh citrus burst, but sweeter than its lemony cousin, Orange Peel brings a subtle juicy aroma to the gin.
The oils from the lemon peel provides a fresh and zingy fragrance, use the perfect amount to give a subtle lemony aroma.
Hints of lemon and citrus are curiously opposed by a slightly smokey undertone.
Combined with a subtle minty and herbaceous fragrance, this gorgeously complex spice provides bags of character!
As the name suggests, this ‘rooty’ botanical gives an earthy, woody and nutty musk, with the fragrance of a damp woodland floor. Balancing a sweet flavour with a dry finish, giving a complex and subtle aroma.
Combining freshly perfumed floral notes, with bitter and earthy undertones. This clever little root also helps bond the flavours of each botanical, giving the gin a well balanced smooth finish.
Our signature botanical! Found in abundance on the North York Moors, this woody, floral and musky flower brings a fresh blossom-like perfume, making ours a uniquely North Yorkshire gin.
