Our Herbalism range had a first bottling in May, the Crazy English Summer 49% Botanical Moonshine expression, which exceeded our expectations by a long way.
Made with our own base white spirit, which is a twice rectified spirit made from the pre and post heart cuts of our gin distillations and then infused with Wild Strawberries (foraged, Barlow) Strawberries (home grown), Lemon Balm (home grown), Raspberries (last season, foraged in Derbyshire, frozen), Wild Cherries (last season, foraged in Derbyshire, frozen) and finally Long Pepper (picked by someone else, Indonesia!) it all comes together into a powerful, smooth, fruity and spicy spirit, goes great with loads of ice, lemonade and mint.
The next two micro batches are being worked on, fingers crossed they’ll be ready for the shop opening! We have a Fig & Honey and a Plum & Damson expression in the making, using 100% home grown, local and foraged produce. Just 30 bottles of each. Fab.
