Pothecary Gin was created by two friends who share a passion for organic, handcrafted, artisan produce. Martin Jennings and Lukasz Dwornik use the unusual process of distilling each botanical separately, and then blending them together before dilution, which yields optimum quality and incomparable aromas and flavours, producing an exciting gin that's both well-balanced and refreshingly individual.
The end product is a unique gin – on the nose, the florals really come through; you can close your eyes and easily be transported to a meadow at first light. The tilia flowers add a strong, honey-like smell but the juniper hints at what lies beneath.
To taste, there’s a lavender explosion – it’s strong and herbal and savoury, though this yields to juniper and a waxy lemon peel, the latter circling back to dominate after the tilia flower brings its honeyed sweetness. This is a smooth, full bodied and bold gin at 44.8% and certainly worth trying for those with a penchant for floral forward gins.
