Limited Edition – Best of Britain
I don’t need to tell you that we have some amazing spirits produced around Great Britain. We have a great selection of British spirits already in the Distilled range, but I am excited to bring some fabulous new additions to the range this summer.
Starting in Scotland, Naked Grouse has all the positive connotations of its famous relation, but brings a really versatile and accessible whisky of blended malts including The Macallan, Highland Park and The Glenrothes, with no grain in sight. Perfect for the base of many great whisky cocktails and mixed drinks.
Caorunn gin is a London Dry-style gin produced in the Cairngorm National Park, combining incredibly pure Scottish water with herbs, plants, flowers and shrubs that grow in the surrounds of the distillery, using vapour infusion methods. A classic liqueur synonymous with great Scottish berries is Braemble blackberry liqueur.
Over to Northern Ireland to the Belfast Cut classic dry gin from Jawbox. Small batch produced and combining eleven individual selected botanicals, this gin is best enjoyed the “Belfast” way with ginger ale and a slice of lime … or of course with your favourite tonic!
To accompany our expanding Welsh range, which includes Barti Ddu, Cygnet Gin and Aber Falls Welsh Dry Gin, we now have two extremely popular flavours: Orange Marmalade and Rhubarb & Ginger gins. The Welsh village of Abergwyngregyn is home to the Aber Falls distillery, which has impressed us hugely with its range of award-winning Welsh gins crafted using Welsh inspired botanicals.
Full-strength flavoured gins (i.e. not liqueurs) are leading the path of growth in the gin category, so it would be remiss not to introduce some new flavours from England as well! Spirit of Harrogate launched Slingsby gin back in 2015 and have seen some great success from their Yorkshire rhubarb gin. Recently, they have selected a more unusual fruit for their new Slingsby Gooseberry gin.
Warner’s, a family-owned farm distillery in Northamptonshire, has added a seventh variant to its portfolio of super-premium flavoured gins. Warner’s are not content with just making great gin; they are acutely aware of its ecological accountability, and have forged a charity partnership with the People’s Trust for Endangered Species (PTES). PTES is an organisation that offers support to hedgerow habitats from which the fresh ingredients that go into Raspberry gin are foraged.
