With tonic, the spiced harshness is muted, whilst the sweeter botanicals – namely liquorice, orris, angelica and orange – rise up. It becomes soft, sippable and interesting enough to serve without a garnish. It’s genuinely a very delicious G&T – one that manages to be both cooling and refreshing, as well as more distinctly nuanced, despite the warmth of the grains of paradise.
Organically produced wheat spirit is macerated for 18 hours with 8 different botanicals, including Sweet Gale which has been harvested from the family farm.
As the spirit runs off the still they introduce a unique juniper filtration process which Dutch gin spirit distillers call ‘dubbel gebeide genever’. This double contact method results in an even more pronounced juniper flavour. The collected spirit has pure water added to it before resting for a minimum of 2 weeks before being bottled and labelled.
