Salcombe Gin Voyager Series 'Phantom' 50cl
A limited edition cask finished gin developed in collaboration with the iconic Château Climens, one of the world’s finest producers of Sauternes wine.
‘Phantom’ was created to mimic the aromas and flavours of the exceptional 1er Cru Sauternes wines produced by Château Climens. This rich, sophisticated and decadent cask finished gin has notes of honeyed peaches, rose petals, cypress, lavender and orange blossom on the nose. Notes of apricots, jasmine, toasted oak, spices and caramelised orange peel follow on the palate. There is a fresh green savoury hint from the nettle and fennel making it light but enhancing the depth of flavour. The finish is acacia honey and cantaloupe melon, balanced with the minerality of fresh orange peel pith. Best served neat over ice, in a ‘Terroir’ cocktail (recipe included) or with a premium tonic water, plenty of ice and a twist of flamed orange peel.
Distilled with 16 botanicals, seven of which were selected from Château Climens’ estate and aged for 8 months in five casks that previously held their 2015 and 2016 vintages. ‘Phantom’ tells the story of the vineyard, the winemaker, the cask, the distiller, and the concept of terroir, taking you on a journey to an unhurried world that requires time, precision, patience and craftmanship to be expertly pursued in the name of taste.
