Like many gins we built Prestwich Gin around the famous five; Juniper, Coriander, Angelica root, Orris root and Liquorice.
Juniper is present as the predominant botanical and it is this that imparts the classic piney taste of gin. Coriander delivers Citrus notes. Angelica root has an earthy flavour but also enhances the piney/citrus flavours of the Juniper and coriander.
Orris root provides floral and perfumed notes and acts as a fixative for the other aromatic flavours. Liquorice root adds a combination of dryness and sweetness. We wanted our gin to have a fresh zesty, citrus taste so we chose bitter Orange and pink Grapefruit peels. Cassia bark gives a vanilla-like scent with a spicy cinnamon note. Almond gives the gin a smooth mouthfeel.
And finally, we added the floral element, a combination of Lavender, Rose, and a hint of Cardamom.
We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
Our Spiced recipe is a London Dry Gin distilled from 9 natural botanicals.
The Gin has a dry Juniper taste balanced with Coriander, Angelica and Orange peel and the sweet spiced flavours of Nutmeg, Cinnamon and Cloves with the lasting warming taste of Ginger and Pink Peppercorns.
