Botanicals sourced from around the globe.
These rich, dark blue-green aromatic berries are sourced from the windswept plains of Macedonia in the Balkan Peninsula of Southeast Europe.
Where the shrubs grow wild, and local farmers harvest the aromatic spice responsible for infusing all gin with its distinctive flavour, by rhythmically beating the shrubs with sticks.
Renowned as a world-leader for its premium quality ginger, Australia was naturally our first port of call for this distinctive botanical.
Hot, pungent with a spicy kick when freshly picked, dried it becomes more aromatic and slightly less piquant. Which, in our gin, contributes a slightly peppery, yet cooling, flavour.
DARJEELING TEA (INDIA)
Declared ‘the Champagne of teas’ thanks to the delicious aromas of muscatel grape and stone fruits it imparts, Darjeeling tea was therefore felt to be an apt inclusion in the botanicals for our premium Declaration Gin.
Handpicked from the foot of the Himalayas, Darjeeling tea represents less than 1% of India’s total tea production.
Native to southern Europe and India, the liquorice used in Declaration Gin is sourced from Pontefract, West Yorkshire.
The root of the Glycyrrhiza glabra, liquorice has a unique taste similar to anise, but with soft, hay-like overtones along with punchy crystalised sugar. Once distilled, it brings all these qualities to our gin, along with an appealing and distinctive taste.
