Cotswolds Ginger Gin
Try something a little different with Cotswolds Ginger Gin.
This delicious warming Gin starts with Cotswolds Dry Gin. Distilled to 83% ABV, it is diluted to 65% ABV for casking – just the right strength to extract fantastic flavour and colour from the wood without drawing out the harsher notes. It goes into the same casks as the flagship Single Malt Whisky – first-fill ex-Bourbon and shaved, toasted and recharred red wine casks, where it matures for three months. Then fresh sweet Valencian orange peel is added to the matured gin, and candied root ginger. These soak in the gin for several weeks, getting a good stir ever few days. Finally, a touch of honey is added to sweeten and dilute to 46% ABV for bottling at the distillery.
On the nose honey and sweet orange notes balance the fresh spicy ginger and piney juniper. Incredibly rich and luxurious on the palate, the ginger warms everything through, with vanilla and red fruit notes from the casks.
There's a lovely long finish full of dry oak spice and ginger, with lots more honey.
This is a rich and warming sipping gin, perfect neat or over ice. The addition of a few drops of Angostura Bitters adds a delicious extra element, or for chillier winter evenings, try adding to warmed apple juice.
