Greensand Ridge are a brand with the environment in mind. Aiming to produce the finest spirits possible, reflecting the flavours of the woods, orchards, fields and hedgerows that surround their distillery.
On top of making gorgeous spirits, the Greensand Ridge team focus on mitigating food waste, reducing their emissions, minimising chemical use and eliminating waste!
This gin is built around Greensand Ridge's multi-award winning London Dry Gin but with a slightly altered recipe. Here the citrus is bumped up, while the pre-existing woody notes are dialled back a bit. The distillers allow the gin to mature for ten months in 220 litre hogshead casks that have previously held rye whiskey, then bottle it at 40% ABV.
A particularly good foundation for a an Old Fashioned style cocktail with a juniper twist.
Creamy vanilla and sandalwood with basil notes. A good helping of citrus and fresh juniper keeps it sweet.
