The stark contrast between land and sea is the inspiration for Whitby Gins botanicals along with the packaging and design.
Heather Flower is collected in collaboration with the North York Moors Authority during June – September. Whitby Gin also work with SeaGrown a seaweed farm based 5 miles offshore from Scarborough to gather forgotten flavours from the sea including sugar kelp and pepper dulse. Yorkshire Honey is one of the key ingredients and makes it’s way into a number of different Editions.
The Bramble & Bay is made unsurprisingly with blackberries and bay leaf. It is inspired by the childhood joy of finding a thicket bejewelled with blackberries.
Juniper, coriander seed, citrus peels and Liquorice Root. Along with Heather tip, Yorkshire Moors Honey and Sugar Kelp, pepper dulse. This edition also includes blackberries and bay leaf.
Quite dry but with a burst of jammy, slightly tart berry, with creamy vanilla and balancing notes of savoury bay, with peppery juniper.
Strangely makes a delicious Negroni! Premium tonic garnished with lime and basil.
