A gin inspired by and distilled in the glorious and beautiful countryside of Northern Ireland.
We put our own David T Smith to work, foraging in the brambles for blackberries on the Rademon Estate, as well as apples from the Walled Garden. These are part of a new botanical mix that is based on the recipe of the original Shortcross Gin.
Nose: Green leafiness and fresh berries – a hedgerow gin if there ever was one; the scent of hedgerows and orchards brimming with fruit.
Taste: A gently spicy spirit with jammy notes from the damson and a plump blackberry note that adds a bright zing.
Finish: Fading notes of blackberry, apple, and vanilla spice, like an autumnal crumble – no, that’s not cobblers!
