CHELTENHAM GIN – FRESH, SMOOTH, INTRIGUING. HANDCRAFTED BY GIN LOVERS.
It took our master distillers over three years to perfect this unique Cloudy Gin. The hard work and research is still ongoing as we continue the Cheltenham Gin traditions. Our Cheltenham gin encompasses local spring water and eight hand-selected botanicals. These are macerated in the copper-pot still overnight before the first distillation and the gin is then re-distilled without the botanicals. This double distillation process creates a gin with a much more refined, smooth and elegant palate.

CHELTENHAM GIN RECIPE & MIXER IDEAS.
For all the drinks, we recommend a 50ml serving of gin (if other spirit is added, decrease the amount of gin appropriately) and a 100ml serving of tonic water. This is 1:2 parts in cocktail terms. Use a nice long glass or even better, a large Spanish-style copa glass with a stem and a big mouth (any decent wine glasses will work for this). Fill the glass right to the top with plenty of ice and use straws if you wish. All tonic should be Indian tonic unless stated otherwise.
Take one measure of Cheltenham Gin and pour a tablespoon of elderflower liqueur in. Add equal parts tonic water and champagne, garnish with a sage leaf or two and a lemon wedge.
Pair Cheltenham Gin with an elderflower flavoured tonic, then garnish with long ribbons of cucumber and a sprig of mint for an elegant classic.
Add a dash of Rhubarb Cordial to your standard G&T for a sweet alternative that tastes of victory. Try it with Rhubarb Liqueur for a drink that will make you a front-runner.
Inspired by the spectacular Cheltenham racecourse in the heart of the Cotswolds, each bottle of Cheltenham Gin contains a unique blend of botanicals, including fresh zest from Spanish oranges and limes. We handcraft our gin with water that travels from high in the surrounding hills, filtering down to a spring not far from the breathtaking Cheltenham town in Gloucestershire.
AN AGE-OLD FAVOURITE
Cheltenham Gin is an impeccable example of a new and exciting take on an age-old favourite. Far from the years of sharp, acidic flavours, our Cheltenham Gin has a very fine, soft tone with delicate botanical notes. The wonderful fresh, clean start continues to deeper spices on the mid-palate, adding length and complexity. The finely-balanced citrus and juniper notes are then followed by a hint of sage accompanied by a strong botanical verve.
The Dutch physician Franciscus Sylvius is often falsely credited with the invention of gin in the mid 17th century. Gin is a spirit which derives its predominant flavour from juniper berries (Juniperus communis). From its earliest origins in the Middle Ages, gin has evolved from use in herbal medicine to an object of commerce in the spirits industry. Gin was developed on the basis of the older jenever, and became popular in Great Britain & Ireland.
CHELTENHAM GIN IS A PURE AND COMPLEX CLOUDY GIN WITH MAGNIFICENT LIME AND JUNIPER NOTES TO BEGIN, A FINELY SPICED MID PALATE AND A SOFT FINISH.

We love lots of tonics and there are plenty about – but we do love Fever Tree Mediterranean tonic. It goes extremely well with the citrus notes of our gin as it’s a delicate, floral tonic water.
