The Rye Cask Gin is a rare and unique expression of what a cask-aged gin can truly be. Of all their spirits it has the most robust flavour, the biggest mouthfeel and the greatest complexity, even in a spirit that is as smooth and silky as honey.
They first distil the multi-award winning London Dry Gin with a slightly altered recipe to add a little more citrusy brightness and moderate some of the woody elements of the unaged release.
They then age the spirit in Rye Whiskey casks for ten months. The Rye cask is the perfect complement to their gin, bringing a warm fruityness and a dry spiciness to our already complex and smooth spirit.
Most cask gins are put into tiny barrels which imparts a flavour in weeks. They opt to mature in 220 litre hogshead casks which necessitates a longer maturation period to get a balanced flavour but brings a much richer and far more complex character from the toasted barrels.
The result is a spirit which confounds and delights the senses.
We suggest savouring this spirit at length over ice with a twist of sweet orange zest.
Alternatively try as the base for short cocktails such as the Negroni or Old Fashioned, where the softness and complexity of the spirit will elevate those classic serves to new levels.
