Ansom Damson Gin 40% – The One From the River. This seasonal Damson Gin is handcrafted using locally-sourced foraged Damsons from around Cornwall. Star Anise, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove and orange are added to the infusion, giving spicy and warming flavours without being overly sweet. Best served after a hearty winter’s dinner accompanied by a cheese board and a fire place. Marmalade Old Tom Gin 40% – The One Made For Toasting A favourite treat of Anne Boleyn and her ladies in waiting, marmalade has long been a British breakfast tradition. Pockerful of Stones Distillery have taken the archetypal flavour of the Seville orange and distilled it with a gorgeous combination of botanicals, infused more Seville Orange peel and then added a slight sweetness to create a citrus-forward, contemporary gin built on the backbone of British tradition. Old Tom Gin, as a style, is a little sweeter than a London Dry. This is no exception, but not too sweet to put off the gin purists out there. They have upped the ante on their dry gin with added Seville orange peel, a little star anise and some liquorice root at the point of distillation; then infused the gin with traditional marmalade for two weeks and brought the ABV down to 40% with hand squeezed orange juice. The result is a smooth, citrus forward gin with mouthfeel well rounded enough to drink by itself, with tonic, in a Negroni or, in the cold of winter, a Marmalade Hot Toddy. Dandelion & Bardock Gin 40% -The Modern Classic. First discovered by St. Thomas Aquinas in 1265 by divine intervention, Dandelion and Burdock is a proven flavour combination that has stood the test of time. Pocketful of Stones Distillery have taken fresh north country dandelion blooms and wild-foraged Burdock and carefully distilled them with their favourite combination of botanicals to create a smooth, contemporary gin built on the backbone of British tradition. The Darling of the North. Dandelion and Burdock is a favourite flavour combination. They have taken the earthy flavours of the roots of these botanicals and distilled them with locally foraged heather, honeybush to add a floral lift and cola nut and almond to bind the flavours with orris root to add length. A classic dry gin when served with tonic water, but if you’re after that old school northern fish and chip shop Dandelion and Burdock serve with ginger ale / or D&B soda. Our favourite cocktail with this gin is the bramble. The sweetness from the blackberry liqueur perfectly balances the earthy notes of the D&B roots and cola nut.
