A complex gin crafted at the Capreolus Distillery using 34 botanicals Distiller Barney Wilczak places a huge importance on the quality of botanicals, all of which are inspected by hand and individually introduced into the process.
The collection of spices, berries and herbs are soaked in British wheat spirit for 40 hours with blood orange, flowers and fragrant leaves placed in a basket in the still.
The distillery is located in Stratton, Gloucestershire and a number of the botanicals are sourced locally. Bottled at 47%, it is also un-chill filtered to retain as much flavour and texture as possible. This starts with a punch of dry juniper on the nose, with orange peel and lemon tart following.
The palate shows this as a big, tasty gin with lots of earthy complexity and a dry finish. A touch of sherbet on the end.
