We were keen to champion rhubarb; a much-celebrated local product. Sourced from the Yorkshire Rhubarb Triangle, we experimented to see what the crimson and green stems, with a few raspberries, were like blended with our Hedgerow Gin; we found we rather enjoyed the results. Unlike a lot of rhubarb gins which have added sugar, ours is bone-dry; as a gin should be. A slightly sweeter tonic then brings the fruity elements to the fore.
Nose – green and fruity aroma, with a gentle sweetness mixed with juniper
Palate – bone dry with background fruit & herb notes, but with clear gin character
Finish – dry with subtle & delightful fruity notes
Juniper, coriander, angelica, orris & bay with six botanicals foraged from the farm and local hedgerows: crab apple, rosehip, elderflower, nettle leaf & wildflower meadow hay. Stones from the spent fruit from our sloe gin.
