Description

Chase Pink Grapefruit & Pomelo Gin

William Chase was a local farmer who grew potatoes when a supermarket rejected a batch he sold them to Kettle Chips who told him they were the best they had ever used so he decided to make his own crisps and Tyrells was born.

He then discovered potatoes could also make amazing vodka and apples the base for great gin,  he also now also owns an estate in Provence making great biodynamic wines.

Pink Grapefruit & Pomelo Gin is crafted by copper pot distilling GB Gin with a bounty of pink grapefruit and pomelo peels.

This zippy and zesty gin mixes perfectly with tonic and should be garnished with a fleshy wedge of pink grapefruit.

Nose: Powerful notes of pink grapefruit combined with subtle hints of juniper and lime zest.

Palate: Tart grapefruit meets juniper.

Finish: Lasting sensation of fresh pink grapefruit.

“Our farm is based in Herefordshire, a county that boasts some of the richest farmland in the world. It is here we grow King Edward, Lady Claire and Lady Rosetta potatoes for the distillery.

Having the distillery located on the farm allows us to keep a watchful eye over how our potatoes and apples move from field to bottle. It’s this single-estate approach that makes us different – something you can taste in our award-winning vodka.

I was hit one day with the eureka moment to turn my potatoes into chips. I spent 2002 travelling the world to source the equipment and recipe to make potato chips. By the summer, “Tyrrells” was born.

As Tyrrells grew, I was searching for the next step. In 2004 whilst travelling in the USA, looking for packaging equipment for the chips, I stumbled on a small distillery making potato vodka and thought this would be a great new chapter to life. So I returned home, thought about it and decided it would definitely be more fun making vodka. I researched the market and found it to be full of a lot of ‘twee’ marketing stories or large corporate companies. So I thought there would be a market if we could make a quality product and sell it with the provenance and pedigree.

I sourced a traditional type of still to make the vodka base but my research told me that to get the best quality, without filtering out all of the character, we needed a bespoke rectifying column. It was hard work but eventually we found a great family firm with over 100 years of experience to supply us with one.

From the idea in 2004, it took us until April fool’s day 2008 to harvest the first of our potatoes, making the first batch of vodka in June 2008. Upon tasting the very first drop from the column before filtering, I was so enamoured and proud of it, I decided to call it Chase Vodka.

And so Chase Distillery was born. The next shock was how little volume we produced: 16 tonnes of potatoes made only 1000 litres of alcohol. Which after 40 hours was very disheartening, but it is testament to the quality of our vodka. So with this supreme quality over all of the other mass produced vodka, I was sure it would work.” – Chase Distillery

This gin is complicated. The taste is the true taste of junipers highlighted by the citrus and the sweetness of the apples, elderflowers and hops. It has a beautiful and textured mouth feel due to the luscious organic apples and the naturally pure water taken straight from the aquifer that runs underneath their orchards. Try it with a slice of apple rather than lemon.
