Delicious Damson Gin Liqueur

In many ways Damson Gin is rapidly becoming one of our most popular flavours.

We used to source all of our Damsons form a lovely lady in Herefordshire who grows them along her farm tracks.

As we have expanded we have had to find more and more damsons.

Luckily the Religious community that provide us with plums also now sell us Damsons.

This year will also see another producer start supplying us this time from the traditional fruit growing area around Evesham.

So we now have three different farms that supply us with best quality Damsons.

Intense and slightly tart, the flavour of Damson begins to taste almost like old fashioned cherry drop sweets.

Beautifully fruity and tart with a taste of cherries in amongst the Damson.

Another winter warmer that you can enjoy in the summer!

Making Gin

Finally, we want to underline that the London Dry Gin used to make our own Gin liqueurs is the highest quality style of gin possible.

In particular, it captures the lovely strong flavours of what used to be termed “Export Strength” Gins.

Distillers combine the base botanicals of Juniper and Coriander seeds with Lemon Peel and Lime Flower and then use Angelica and Orris Root which act as the fixatives bringing harmony to the different flavours.

The use of Lime flower therefore gives the Gin a very clean and refreshing taste.

In conclusion, see below the Tasting notes from the 2011 IWSC:

“Big, booming nose that gives everything a London Dry should do but more at the strength. Super active entry into the mouth yet gorgeously deep and mellow. All the flavour you could want in wonderful integration. Complexity gives super smoothness and velvet flow while retaining the lively character. Complex, long, refreshing finish. Aftertaste lasts for ever!”

Cotswold Dry Gin Quick View

Cotswold Dry Gin

Nose: fresh notes of grapefruit with earthy coriander backed-up by sweet juniper. Soft notes of black pepper with a hint of perfumed Cotswolds lavender. Palate: clean, pine juniper spice with fresh grapefruit and coriander seed. A touch of dryness from the angelica root with eucalyptus notes from bay leaf. Subtle lime and lavender. The expression of the traditional London dry style comes from the maceration into our pure wheat spirit of juniper, coriander and angelica root, which have been left for 12 hours to allow their flavour characteristics to fully infuse. They then add their unique botanical mix of Cotswolds lavender and bay leaf, grapefruit, lime, black pepper and cardamom seed into their carter head still for distillation before finishing with naturally refined Cotswolds water. The result is a classic well-balanced juniper-led gin with crisp citrus and spice. This gin is delicious on its own and over ice. It’s robust enough to stand up to tonic and smooth enough to craft the ultimate gin martini.
