42.5% | 50cl | Aged Gin
We couldn't be more pleased with the arrival of this new gin. Not only is it an extension to the hugely successful Darnley's gin range, but it's also unlike any gin in the market.
Distilled using smoked malted barley, this gin is the result of a series of experiments by the distiller, who brought in a local smoker to smoke the locally grown barley over pinewood chips.
Other ingredients used in making this gin include a very smoky Lapsang Souchong tea, coriander, rowanberry, zesty orange peel, angelica, and juniper.This limited gin has a unique malty depth, and is full of sweet citrus zest that develops into a big smoky flavour.
This release is limited to 2,400 bottles worldwide.
NOSE: Sweet berry notes combine with orange and lemon as the delicate pine scented smoke slowly reveals itself.
PALATE: A strong citrus presence of orange and grapefruit, with a malty depth and a light beach bonfire smoke is delivered on top.
FINISH: A long fruity complex finish with citrus at the fore and smoke slowly increasing in intensity.
