Pocket Full of Stones Caspyn Cornish Dry Gin
Pocketful of Stones was born in the cellar of a pub in London. Sat around a tiny copper still, two brothers tinkered with gin recipe after gin recipe. The dream was to get back to their roots, the outdoors and the ocean and produce something they were both passionate about. Caspyn was born.
Distilled in minute batches (250 bottles) to a traditional and very aromatic recipe. Pure juniper, coriander, oris, and citrus zest all feature on the nose and the palate. Think the Cornish seaside, crisp and fresh. Every bottle from every batch is hand-numbered and labelled and features a great image of Cornwall’s own Basking Shark – an appropriate feature since some of the proceeds from Caspyn’s sales are donated to the Cornwall Wildlife Trust.
A classic dry gin, with loads of floral (hibiscus flowers) and citrus notes (lemon and orange peel, lemon grass, lemon verbena), a freshness (Japanese tea), length and long sherbety finish (gorse and orris).
The Cornish Dry is perfect served with premium tonic, garnished with a twist of orange. I like to keep the garnish simple so that the flavours and aromas of the gin stand out. Try this gin in a classic negroni, dry martini or a Dirty Gibsonsee less
