Cotswold London Dry Gin
Nine carefully selected botanicals go into the Cotswold’s gin gin. Juniper berries from Macedonia, coriander seed from Morrocco and angelica root from Poland form the classic foundation for this London Dry style Gin. In addition, Cotswolds lavender from Snowshill and Egyptian bay leaves.
The citrus element comes from freshly-peeled lime and pink grapefruit zest – fresh peels are preferred rather than dried because of the greater quantity of essential oils. This also means that the Cotswold’s team peel several hundred limes and grapefruits per week, by hand.
The final botanicals are cardamom seed and black peppercorn, to give a hint of spice. Tough work, but totally worth it for the vibrant flavours and rich mouthfeel that make this gin stand out from the crowd.
Fresh notes of grapefruit with earthy coriander backed-up by sweet, piney juniper. A hint of perfumed Cotswolds lavender on the nose. A palate that is clean with pine juniper spice and fresh citrussy grapefruit. A touch of dryness from the angelica root, with eucalyptus notes from bay leaf. Subtle lime and lavender.
