Silent Pool Gin (70cl, 43%)
Silent Pool Gin is named for the eponymous lake near to where it is produced in Surrey. Juniper-driven with notes of lavender, chamomile and citrus, there is also some local honey in the mix.
24 botanicals carefully chosen for their uniqueness. All the botanicals work together in unison to afford a romantic, complex flavour. Fresh floral and clarifying citrus notes are grounded by earthy and spicy cassia bark and cubeb. The smooth finish is achieved with the help of local honey. Refreshingly individual, intricately realised gin in 43% ABV. Recommended serve is with a generous handful of ice, a dash of tonic, and a twist of orange peel to garnish.
A desire to capture the essence of England’s beautiful, rural landscape in our spirits led us to this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. As the principle ingredient in gin is juniper berries, which once grew abundantly in the Surrey Hills, it made perfect sense to be based here. With a vision of creating handcrafted, premium spirits, we located our distillery on the bank of the spring-fed Silent Pool. The crystal-clear water, which springs from a deep, natural aquifer, is the inspiration for our flagship Silent Pool Gin. Each of our 24 unique botanicals is carefully selected and, where possible, locally sourced. The pulse of this outstanding landscape beats right through the heart of the distillery and the spirits we produce.
Nose: Violet, lavender and lime leaf bring floral aromatics to the nose, while cardamom and juniper give it a spicy edge.
Palate: Elderflower, chamomile and a waft of orange blossom. Warming honey sweetness and a spark of black pepper.
Finish: Vanilla-rich honey notes last on the finish.
