Garden Swift Gin

Garden Swift Gin has organic blood orange, flowers, spice, berries, pine, drying resins and sweetness that fill the mouth. Rich and unbelievably complex, it transcends expectations of a gin.

Finely formed valleys, coppiced woodland, breathtaking wildflower meadows and golden limestone form a backdrop of immense beauty to this small distillery tucked away in the heart of the Cotswolds.

Raised in these surroundings, Barney Wilczak has led a life entwined in the magic of this most idyllic of landscapes. As a photographer he has spent his career focusing on conservation stories. This has led to the supply of non profit media to conservationists in over 118 countries.

This high level of focus on the natural world, biology and artistic expression, also guided  his pursuits outside of this field. The fascination of guiding fermentation, working with natural biological processes, led to years of pursuing perfection in fruit distillates. Deep research and an obsessive focus have led to the distillation of Eaux de Vie that have never been seen on these shores before.

After long planning it was chosen to create a distillery in the house where Barney grew up. The old lean to greenhouse, a frame of timber and Cotswold stone, was converted to house a very special custom still. Every aspect was chosen to preserve the fruits elegance and quality that exists for just a few days.

The experience and focus surrounding his work with fruit distillation led to a desire to create a gin of effortless complexity. Hundreds of test distillations, explorations of individual species and the best way to extract their unique perfume, led to the creation of Garden Tiger gin, its name is drawn from an exquisite day flying moth. Homegrown and wild species enrich a palate of 34 botanicals. A secret recipe whose result varies with the weather, the distillers mood and the seasons effects on the ingredients, it is something to savour and experience in its flux and evolution.

Attention to detail is reflected in the demands they make in the ingredients for Garden Tiger gin, whether cultivated, wild or grown in their own gardens. With solid days of extracting the fresh zest from organic blood oranges, rejecting the cheap but lifeless dried peel used by most, through to the gentle hand sorting of flowers picked from the tall candles of mullein plants.

Hard spices, berries and herbs are soaked in their neutral British wheat spirit for 40 hours. They then suspend fresh blood orange zest and a rich mix of flowers and fragrant leaves above the liquid, their aroma gently extracted by the rising steam.  34 ingredients in all come together in a slow 7 hour, carefully guided, distillation. It creates a sum much greater than its parts.
