Salcombe Midnight Sun 0%
"A delicate combination of lavender, elderflower and fresh pine with a hint of berry sweetness and herbaceous dill. on the nose. Sweet yet complex berry flavours on the palate with a faint hint of salinity from kelp and samphire. Floral notes from elderflower and resinous pine provide a full spectrum of flavour. The finish is long and lingering with sweetness making way for elderberry tartness, dryness from sage and pine and lasting sense of the sea from the subtle flavours of kelp."
"‘Midnight Sun’ has been carefully distilled and crafted using 7 core botanicals and a further 7 natural botanical distillates and extracts, all of which have been hand-selected to showcase the flavours of the wild Nordic coastlines and nod towards the pillars of modern Nordic cuisine.
To create the base for ‘Midnight Sun’, our expert distillers first make a ‘botanical steep’. 7 hand-sourced and carefully balanced botanicals including elderberries, seaberries, kelp and samphire are steeped in a neutral grain spirit and water which macerates for 48 hours at about 40% ABV. The use of alcohol to extract and carry flavour is an important part of the process.
Next, using a combination of craft and innovation, the ‘botanical steep’ is then distilled in our rotary vacuum still; a process that removes the alcohol without removing the flavour. This creates a highly concentrated core flavour distillate, which acts as the backbone of ‘Midnight Sun’. This core flavour distillate is then carefully blended with a further 7 natural flavours such as lingonberries and pine and stabilised with the unusual use of kombucha."
