Slingsby – Rhubarb Gin

Our list includes:

Caorunn

Caorunn is a modern London Dry Gin with a dry crisp aromatic taste. Full bodied and clean which is slightly drying on the back of the throat.

 

Silent Pool

Silent Pool has 24 botanicals carefully chosen for their uniqueness. All the botanicals work together in unison to afford a romantic, complex flavour. Fresh floral and clarifying citrus notes are grounded by earthy and spicy cassia bark and cubeb. The smooth finish is achieved with the help of local honey. Refreshingly individual, intricately realised gin in 43% ABV. Recommended serve is with a generous handful of ice, a dash of tonic, and a twist of orange peel to garnish.

Gin Mare

An unusual, savoury but balanced gin, Gin Mare is made in a former monks retreat just outside Barcelona. Comprising of botanicals such as rosemary, thyme, olive and basil., Gin Mare is definitely manna from heaven!
