Lundin Distilling Company Ltd / Gorse Gin

New business producer being sponsored by Business Gateway Fife at Fife Farmers Markets'  Business Gateway Fife
Working in collaboration with a renowned distiller (previously of Sipsmith and currently Arbikie), Gorse Gin is the combination of a love for the Fife coast and the science of botanical profiling. Together they create a fruity and floral gin; smooth enough to be enjoyed straight but robust enough to stand up to a tonic. Even in a busy market, this uniquely long gin pushes the boundaries of the spirit.
Botanicals:
18 botanicals including Italian (sweet) and Macedonian (rich) juniper, elderflower, chamomile, caraway, grapefruit, bitter orange, cinnamon and locally foraged Fife gorse (of course!).
Nosing/Tasting:
Upfront juniper with lemon sherbet. The gorse adds bison grass and honey which then lead into a fusion of fruit flavours (cherry, apple, pear) and, for the truly discerning gin drinker, a hint of Irn-Bru! Finally, the gin eases into a wonderfully long finish of treacle toffee, dark chocolate and bitter orange.
