We are delighted to introduce a very special limited edition gin distilled especially for us at Craft Gins by Mark Marmont and the team at 58 Gin!
This is the first in our series of limited edition gins distilled exclusively for us by our artisan gin distillers. We wanted to start close to home and after tasting 58 Gin’s delicious Chocolate Negroni Gin created for Christmas we knew that 58 Gin in Hackney Downs, East London, was the perfect place to start.
58 Gin is one of the smallest micro-distilleries in the capital with the team consisting only of founder Mark, assistant distiller Brad Price and head of operations Carmen Dunphy. After discussing different botanical recipes, we decided to create a classic London Dry style gin with 7 botanicals. Macedonian juniper berries and Syrian angelica root provide the core classic flavours. Javan cubeb pepper and Indian liquorice root add exotic spice notes to the spirit. Lemons and blood oranges from Spain and pink grapefruit from Italy’s Amalfi Coast impart delicious and refreshing citrus flavours.
After maceration overnight in British neutral grain spirit in Mark’s 60 litre copper pot still, these botanicals are distilled slowly in a one shot distillation process, with only the heart of the distillate taken. The gin is bottled at 43% ABV, with each bottle waxed and labelled by hand on site at the distillery. Et voila, the Craft Gins limited edition 58 Gin, only 270 bottles and each with a beautifully embossed gold label signed by the distillers!
Our gin has inviting aromas of juniper pine, white flowers and lemon curd with a hint of marmalade. The texture is soft and velvet like and the palate opens with juniper and freshly zested citrus fruits, leading into spicy sweet liquorice and pepper, with refreshing notes of lemon and blood orange on the finish.
