Description

Pinpointing exactly what makes this extraordinarily characterful gin quite so individual is both laughably simple and yet fraught with difficulty. With each botanical picked separately at the absolute peak of ripeness, from early March to early May 2021, this is a true symphony of place. The gloriously savoury aspect of nettle leaves and cow parsley, along with Juniper’s firm bass-note, provide ample cushion for lemon balm and exquisitely delicate hawthorn blossoms to whisper along as if lifted by a springtime meadow breeze. A crystalline moment in time, perfectly perceived by master distiller Will Lowe, I greatly look forward to future releases from this category-defining producer.

About this SPIRIT

The Cambridge Distillery

The Cambridge Distillery

Cambridge Distillery was co-founded by William Lowe, the world’s first – and only – person to be both a Master of Wine (MW) and master distiller. Here, William and his small team craft a range of notably innovative gins, including Anty Gin (“the world’s first insect-based gin”) and Watenshi (“the world’s most exclusive gin”). The latter is produced using a proprietary technique of fractional condensation: to make a single bottle requires 50 individual still-runs. They use only fresh botanicals, processing them as and when they are in season and reserving the distilled liquid for later blending – and treating each ingredient separately. In all, there are nine individual variables per ingredient here. Considering that they work with hundreds of individual ingredients, the possibilities are virtually endless.
