Chilli Orange Gin
This gin is our first experiment at adding whole grapes of Muscat into the boiler after soaking in grape spirit for three weeks. We use local oranges and fresh ginger to give the citrus and spice components. The grapes add flavor and fullness on the palate with some elderflower to add floral notes. The final assembly was a joy with no post distillation flavouring needed. Juniper and coriander components were kept subdued so as not to overpower the delicate floral notes.
Distinctly Muscat grape aromas in the glass, a full bodied palate of fruit and citrus with floral aromas. I think that all the boxes have been ticked and this an interesting and complex gin.
Served over ice with a garnish of dehydrated orange and a splash of elderflower tonic. Definitely our most fruity gin.
