Waddesdon’s No.1 Botanical Gin
Waddesdon Estate possesses a multitude of botanicals, fruits, and vegetables that inspire the culinary mind. In 2019 we created our very own unique distilled gin. From May to August we collected elderflower, cucumber and thyme from several parcels across the estate. The unique blend of botanicals were preserved, and then extracted by Foxdenton ready for distillation and bottling in early October.
The success of our Waddesdon Rhubarb and Damson gin inspired us to create this unique spirit, sharing the same ethos of small parcel production using estate-grown ingredients. Only 500 bottles are produced annually. This wonderful gin offers a freshness and depth, with the individual characters derived from each botanical clearly evident on the palate. We advise you serve a double measure poured directly over fresh ice cubes, then top up with good quality tonic, preferably elderflower. Serve with a squeeze of lime or slice of cucumber.
