Juniper Club Gins of the Month

  • Holly's Gin - January 2019 Juniper Club Gin of the Month

    Having landed the role of ‘Gintern’ (described as the “world’s best job for Gin Lovers”) the next logical step for Holly Harwood was to use her knowledge of the spirit and industry to create her own Gin. The first batch was distilled at the end of 2018 following a successful Crowdfunding campaign. It is named simply ‘Holly’s Gin’ as a reflection of the personal journey and investment this adventure has been for her.

    Everything about the finished product is inspired by Holly’s love if Art Deco, a London Dry and here home in Cornwall. Holly’s Gin is distilled at the Trevethan Distillery in Saltash, Cornwall in two 300 litre copper stills called Doris and Rose.  This distillery was chosen partly as a result of their own Art Dec bottles and history dating back to the 1920’s.

    The frosted green glass bottle is distinctive as is the gold leaf design which includes some of the botanicals painted on to it. The shell logo on the bottle is inspired by  Holly’s love of Cornish beaches.

    Holly’s Gin is distilled using 9 botanicals including passion flower, gentian root and orange to create a delicate and delicious yet fresh and vibrant flavour.

    As a new Cornish Gin on the scene, this was a must have to add to The Juniper Club’s Cornish Gin collection. We were also thrilled to be able to call this our January 2019 Gin of the month.

    Holly’s perfect serve is:
    Plenty of ice
    Double measure (5cl) of Holly’s Gin
    Good quality tonic (light works well too)
    Fresh orange peel

    Holly's Gin is a must try option, smooth and delicious!

    **Join us for a Meet the Distiller evening with Holly on Friday 22nd February in Devoran, enjoy a complimentary G&T and hear the story of Holly's Gin - tickets are free but please book online here**

     

  • Lind & Lime Gin - December 2018 Juniper Club Gin of the Month

    When we first saw the striking Lind & Lime bottles, we knew we had to stock this gin. We were also drawn to the historical links to the Port of Leith and Dr James Lind’s discovery that eating citrus fruit prevents scurvy. Ever since we sent Lind & Lime out to our subscription members in December 2018, it’s been flying off the shelves. 
  • Mackintosh Gin - February 2019 Juniper Club Gin of the Month

    We’ve been hearing a lot of good things about Mackintosh Gin and were delighted to be able to offer it as our February 2019 Gin of the Month to our subscription members.

    Distilled and bottled in Angus “the birth place” of Scotland in batches of less than 300, Mackintosh Gin is truly a family affair.  The Mackintosh family - husband and wife James and Deborah and daughters Steph, Char and Alex. It all started as an off the cuff comment about making their own Gin whilst at the Wee G&T Festival in Perth in 2016. Two years later, the first batch of Mackintosh Gin was a reality on on sale to the public.

    The inspiration for the branding was taken from the ‘lover’s knot’, a symbol carved into a 9th century Pictish Stone in Meigle not far from the Mackintosh family home.



    Mackintosh Gin is distilled using nine botanicals sourced from all over the world with the Juniper and Citrus coming from Spain, the Coriander and Angelica from Eastern Europe and Elderflower from Angus.   The addition of cinnamon and ginger adds a sweet warmth.

    This is a beautifully smooth, juniper led Gin. It has citrus and spice flavours yet remains sweet and refreshing.

    The Mackintosh family deliberately haven’t specified a perfect serve.  They want us to enjoy the gin the way we like it. We have enjoyed it with Elderflower, Indian and Mediterranean tonic. Even the Mackintosh family themselves are divided on their favourite garnish with votes for lemon, lime and pink grapefruit.

    Our Juniper Club team tested it with Fever Tree Indian Tonic, Pink Grapefruit and a couple of Juniper Berries and it was fantastic!
