Greensand Ridge - Rye cask gin 40% - 50cl
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.
A rare and unique expression of what a cask-aged gin can truly be.
We first distil our multi-award winning London Dry Gin with a slightly altered recipe to add a little more citrusy brightness and moderate some of the woody elements of the unaged release.
We then age the spirit in Rye Whiskey casks for ten months. The Rye cask is the perfect complement to our gin, bringing a warm fruityness and a dry spiciness to our already complex and smooth spirit.
Most cask gins are put into tiny barrels which imparts a flavour in weeks. We opt to mature in 220 litre hogshead casks 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.
Aromatic, woody, and cirtrus to start, followed by the depth of the Rye cask, toffe/vanilla and sandalwood. Finished with further soft oak.
Local: Cobnuts, Poppy Seed, Bay Laurel, Hawthorn Berries, Rosehips, Oak Moss, Gorse Flowers, Honey.
Classic: Juniper, Coriander Seed, Cardamom Seed, Grains of Paradise, Cassia Bark, Fresh Lemon Peel, Bitter Orange Peel.
