FROM THE RIVER
Our Seasonal Damson Gin is made using locally sourced foraged damsons from around Cornwall. The first and original batch was Newlyn Coombe Damson Gin, made with damsons foraged from the Newlyn Coombe river in Penzance, hence the name.
This year because of the lack of rain in Cornwall we have had to look further afield and bulk up or damson stock with damsons foraged from around Barripper and Penponds. Also added to the infusion is star anise, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove and orange giving spicey and warming flavours without being overly sweet. Juicy red fruit flavours with a touch of tannic acidity.
The damson flavour carries through to a nice long finish. Notes of Christmas develop in the background.
