Greensand Ridge - Px Cask 40% - 5cl
An unbelievably smooth and complex sipping gin, matured ten months in Pedro-Ximenez Sherry Casks for a rare treat
Greensand Ridge is a micro-distillery on a mission to develop breathtaking spirits the slow way. They only develop spirits that truly reflect the flavours of their region and do so with an unflinching attention to detail. Working with local farmers, they ferment and distill quality produce that supermarkets won't take, all with 100% renewable power.
Greensand Ridge London Dry Gin is lovingly distilled from eight local botanicals that grow in the fields, woods and orchards beneath the Greensand Ridge. They marry these with seven carefully selected classic botanicals to create an exceptionally smooth and delicately balanced premium gin.
We then age the spirit in Pedro-Ximenez Sherry casks for ten months. The intensely sweet, dark, dessert sherry-infused cask infuses in to our already complex and smooth spirit, adding layers of raisin, molasses and christmas spice.
Most cask gins are put into tiny barrels which imparts a flavour in weeks. We opt to mature in 250 litre sherry butt which necessitates a longer maturation period to get a balanced flavour but brings a much richer and far more complex character from the toasted barrels.
The influence of the Sherry cask is immediately available on the nose together with the classic aromatic citrus and pine expected of Greensand Ridge's London Dry.
Sweet Raisin & Molasses saturate the palatte, followed by an super smooth finish and Christmas-esque spice.
Local: Cobnuts, Poppy Seed, Bay Laurel, Hawthorn Berries, Rosehips, Oak Moss, Gorse Flowers, Honey.
