Inspired by the East Neuk of Fife
The nine botanicals at the heart of this London Dry Gin are a mixture of locally grown and foraged botanicals from along the east coast of Scotland to develop a gin that is a rare expression of the heart and soul of the coastline of our beloved East Neuk of Fife. Sea buckthorn, sugar kelp and marigold petals makes this gin reminiscent of a soft sea breeze, with salty pine upfront followed by tropical mango and pineapple notes to create a light, balanced gin. Serve with premium tonic water and an orange wedge garnish.
Nose: Sea breeze, floral pineapple and mango
Palate: Salty pine upfront, mango and orange with notes of pear drop sweets
Finish: Marmalade, sweet pineapple and pine
Juniper, coriander seed, angelica, orris root, sea buckthorn, lemon balm, marigold petals, sugar kelp and orange peel.
A word from our distiller
"I tried to capture the feeling of a Summers day by creating a gin using local sea buckthorn which has subtle tropical fruit notes supported by our cottage garden grown lemon balm and marigold petals. For me, the best part about creating this expression was working with Jayson Byles at East Neuk Seaweed. Jayson sustainably forages sugar kelp from the Fife coastline with the purpose of using it for wild cooking. We were lucky enough to use his harvest to infuse our gin with using a vapour basket, creating that salty breeze we described earlier."
