The UK is the motherland of gin, and remains its biggest producer. While gin is often believed to be a quintessentially English spirit, there many excellent gins made throughout the nation.
An early pioneer of the British craft spirits movement, Herefordshire-based Chase is famed for its farm-to-bottle approach, using estate-grown potatoes to make its vodkas and gins. Chase GB Gin is its core gin expression, made by re-distilling Chase Original Vodka with 10 classic botanicals. It is fragrant and full-bodied – perfect for those who like their gins ‘extra dry’.
Suggested serves: A classic G&T with heaps of ice and a slice of ginger. Also try mixing with cloudy apple juice and a squeeze of lime.
Lemon oil on the nose with notes of basil, a hint of cucumber and lots of fragrant juniper. The juniper becomes drier on the palate, with additional flavours of cinnamon bark, robust red chilli and orange peel. Finish is spicy and fresh.
