Dr Beaky's Gin
Dr Beaky's Gin
Dr Beaky's Gin is made using the botanicals said to be found in the 17th century plague doctors masks.
Dr Beaky’s exquisite London Dry Gin has herby citrus tones from homegrown lemon balm & mint, floral notes from rose, carnation petals & lavender and warm spice from cloves, peppers and juniper.
Each bottle is then gently filled with aromatic juniper wood smoke to create very light smokey finish.
Dr Beaky’s Gin is rather intriguing indeed, as it's made using botanicals that 17th century plague doctors would have kept in their masks!
Featuring mint, lavender, lemon balm, carnation petals, rose, clove, lemon balm and more, it's an enjoyably herbaceous expression indeed.
"Back in August 2018 Jonny came home from a busy shift in the kitchen and declared "We're going to make gin!" Natalie heard the word gin to which her automatic response is "yes please".
That is how Dr Beaky's Gin's story began.
After a period of experimenting and research we realised that we had both the skills and access to amazing botanical ingredients surrounding us here on the knapp to create a fantastic London Dry Gin. Shortly after this our very first gin 'Wild Knapp Gin' was born.
We emptied an outbuilding that was previously used for storage and purchased our first small still. When we say we are a small batch micro-distillery, we really mean it with each batch being a maximum 25 bottles.
We started to experiment with fruit and herbs grown on the land surrounding the distillery; known locally as the knapp. The ingredients we use include quince, apples, pears, thyme, bay, rosemary, rose petals and elderberries.
We also cut our Dr Beaky's Gin to bottle strength using our own spring water. After many late nights and interesting combinations we found what we thought was a winner. Everything we do is hand crafted from distilling the gin itself to bottling and labelling each bottle. " - Little Knapp Distillery
