Thomas Dakin Gin
This is a unique gin that you definitely need to try! A gin steeped in heritage, Thomas Dakin himself was just 25 years old in 1761 when he began distilling his own gin in Warrington. Today, the gin isn’t a recreation of an original recipe, but has botanicals inspired by exotic spices and the unusual addition of horseradish (or “red cole” as it was known in the 18th century).
Thomas Dakin Gin has 11 botanicals in total, including juniper, coriander seed, cubebs, angelica root, liquorice, sweet orange peel, grapefruit peel and horseradish.
Tasting notes: Juniper-led with notes of sweet orange and citrus, enlivened by an infusion of distinctive red cole (horseradish)!
Recommended serve: with ice, tonic, orange peel and a sprig of fresh coriander.
70cl / 42% Vol.
