Very Old Tom
STYLE: Blended Malt
DESCRIPTION: A truly crazy Batshit Mental creation, Very Old Tom is created from a base blend of spirits – both aged and unaged – which is subsequently tweaked using cold distilled botanicals including juniper, coriander, cardamom, fresh lemon peel, fresh grapefruit peel, fresh lime peel, fresh orange peel, fresh clementine peel, Earl Grey tea, angelica, liquorice and orris root. It’s then macerated with fresh juniper berries and slightly sweetened (the hallmark of an Old Tom gin). Finally, it’s filled into 50 litre casks for a further five months maturation!
TASTING NOTES: Nose: Opens with clean juniper and Cayenne pepper, followed by fragrant tree resin. This leads to leafy blackberry bush notes, rounded off with whiffs of fresh iced buns.
Palate: Juicy orange flesh and waxy peels. Nods to classic Old Tom sweetness, as well as spicy cardamom and subtly grippy, oak-y tannins.
Finish: Balanced on the finish with lasting sugary notes and touches of oak spice.
Rock Rose Gin
STYLE: Scottish Botanical
DESCRIPTION: Flavourful and fresh, zesty yet berryful with a long smooth finish.
TASTING NOTES: Rock Rose gin gets its wonderful flavour from a carefully selected and put together creation of local and traditional botanicals.
Each one meticulously chosen for their flavour properties to create the perfect taste.
FIRST DISTILLED: 17th August 2014
Sir Robin of Locksley
STYLE: Multi-Purpose Sipping Gin
DESCRIPTION: Sir Robin of Locksley® Distilled Artisan Gin has incredible versatility – one of the very few (if not only) true English sipping gins, try it neat or chilled. It makes a mean G&T, and a wonderful martini (dry or dirty), as well as numerous other cocktails.
TASTING NOTES: Up-front juniper with more delicate aromas of elderflower bubbling through. Deliciously smooth and round on the palate – warm cassia notes soothed with dandelion. Pink grapefruit adds an underlying sweetness and lingering citrus finish. Balanced yet distinctively unique.
Garnish is a personal choice and very subjective, but we like it on its own or with pink grapefruit peel for an extra citrus blast.
STYLE: Dry Gin
DESCRIPTION: Classic London Dry Gin. Each of the organically sourced botanicals is distilled under vacuum to create a fresh, creamy, beautifully balanced gin like no other.
SERVING SUGGESTIONS: Pour straight from the freezer with a few drops of Sacred English Dry Vermouth for a dry martini, garnish with a large twist of lemon zest. Alternatively, pour a large measure of Sacred Gin over ice and top with your favourite tonic water, garnished with a slice of ruby red grapefruit and a sprig of rosemary.
AWARDS: Double Gold Medal Award Winner at San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
STYLE: London Dry Gin
DESCRIPTION: Mr. Copperhead, the notorious alchemist in constant search of improving his elixir of life, was enchanted by the elder tree and the tales surrounding it of witchcraft, protection and life prolongation. He managed to use the pitch black berries of the Sambucus Nigra shrub to stimulate the immune system. Carefully balanced with black Ceylon tea, this exquisite variant of the original Copperhead recipe will pleasantly surprise your senses. Welcome to the dark side of gin.
TASTING NOTES: The woman’s serve is made with our handcrafted elderberry syrup for flavouring the ice cubes.
STYLE: New Western
DESCRIPTION: Alkkemist Gin is born on a base of grain alcohol 3 times distilled. It is made in traditional copper alembics, with a quadruple distillation from which only the heart of each distillation is extracted to obtain a pure mixture that guarantees the perfect fusion between grain and a formidable selection of 21 botanicals carefully selected.
TASTING NOTES: Alkkemist Gin is the first gin that uses Muscat grape in its making, selected from the best strains in the Mediterranean, being added at the end of the process to provide an exquisite and exclusive scent.
