Waddesdon’s No.1 Botanical Gin
We are delighted to announce the release of our exclusive Waddesdon’s No.1 Botanical Gin. 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.
The Waddesdon Estate possesses a multitude of botanicals, fruits, and vegetables that inspire the culinary mind. When you consider this, coupled with the fact that a Gin revolution is in full swing, we thought it was the perfect time to create our own unique distilled gin. From May to August we collected elderflower, cucumber and thyme from several parcels across the estate. This unique blend of botanicals were preserved, and then extracted by Foxdenton estate ready for distillation and bottling in early October.
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.
