The Blowing Stone London Dry Gin (70cl, 42.%). From The Blowing Stone Distillery in Berkshire.
Awarded ‘Best English London Dry Gin 2021’ at the World Gin Awards. The Blowing Stone London Dry Gin is the first in their Ashdown Series and is a tribute to Alfred’s first victory over the Danish Vikings. Batch-distilled using a three-part process. Using a blend of beautifully balanced botanicals which could be found locally during the middle ages.
A delicate and distinctive flavour. Coming from a blend of meadowsweet, elderflower and hand-picked wild gorse from the North Wessex Downs. In the 9th Century honey was a delicacy. Also, they are beekeepers, so add a dash of their home-made local honey. Helping to smooth the flavour and provide the sumptuous mouthfeel of the gin.
Perfect Serve: Premium Indian Tonic with ice and a slice of citrus fruit – pink grapefruit, orange or lime
