COTSWOLDS CHELTENHAM GIN – FRESH, SMOOTH, INTRIGUING. HANDCRAFTED BY GIN LOVERS.
It took our master distillers over three years to perfect this unique gin. 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 is the gin of the Cotswolds.
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.
Cheltenham Gin: The botanicals we use include: Juniper, Bay Leaves, Sage, Lemon Peel, Angelica Root, Coriander, Orris Root and a couple more! *No seahorses were harmed in the making of this product! 🙂
HISTORY OF GIN
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.
