Slingsby Gooseberry Gin - 70cl - 40% ABV
Based up in Harrogate, Yorkshire, the Slingsby team are a wonderful bunch who place real emphasis on education and engagement. They want drinkers to understand the history of Gin and they want to promote the industry in general – go to their shop or bar and they won’t just feed you their own gin, they’ll take on board the flavour profiles you like and give you a version of the spirit that caters to your tastes. It’s an incredible effort and really helps to spread the Gin love that bit farther.
Made using water from the restorative Tewit well in the local town and featuring botanicals grown in the Rudding Park Hotel’s kitchen garden, Slingsby Gin is a bold, loud, complex and brilliantly British affair.
The latest addition to their portfolio, Slingsby Gooseberry, is a bright, sharp affair, with a great big burst of fruity sweetness. Based on the flavours of a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, the gin is a crisp, moreish offering, with a beautiful tanginess that keeps you reaching for more.
To serve: Keep the wine theme alive with some sliced grapes.
