    Small Batch London Dry Gin - 42% ABV

     

    Far older than Harewood House, way earlier than Harewood Castle and pre-dating the Domesday Book, stands Greystone rock. Featuring a series of concentric circles pecked out of the rock with a deer antler, its over 4000 years old.  

     

    To make our gin we've hand-picked mulberries from a 100 year-old tree growing on the shores of Harewood lake and foraged elderberries from the Estate. We've given them to award-winning Whittaker's Gin to work their magic in the distilling process using a 300 litre copper still called Jezebel. The result is a true Yorkshire triumph of flavour. 

     

    What the tasters said - "The mulberry gives a sweetness on the nose. The first hit is of juniper complemented by the sharp elderberry. A hint of pepper from the coriander is followed by the delicate mulberry. Finishes with a soft smoothness on the tongue and just a hint of pineapple at the end."

    Our gin is versatile and can be enjoyed in a number of ways, the following are tried and tested but let us know via social media if you come up with another winner:

    • Drink it straight over ice to get the full flavour hit
    • As a G&T with a frozen blackberry or raspberry, a star anise or juniper berries and a premium light tonic
    • As a summer cooler with one shot of gin, one shot of campari, premium light tonic, twist of orange peel and a fresh seasonal garnish
