The Chase family farm is in Herefordshire, a county that boasts some of the richest farmland in the world. On the farm they grow King Edward, Lady Claire and Lady Rosetta potatoes.
Having the distillery located on the farm allows them to keep a watchful eye over how the potatoes and apples move from field to bottle. Itâ€™s this field to bottle approach that makes Chase different, something you can taste in their award-winning spirits.
Chase believe in a truly sustainable approach to farming and creating spirits, which is why they let nothing go to waste. Chase generate their own energy from an on site bio-boiler, Huxley; which is powered using the prunings from the apple orchards, all of the potato waste goes to fertilise the fields or feed the farms herd of pedigree Hereford cattle, and wherever possible, the fresh ingredients used in Chase's products are sourced on site, on the family farm or from local Herefordshire suppliers. As farmers at heart, Chase value the countryside, every inch of it, from field to bottle.
It is a little known fact that gin is made from vodka, and so to highlight this point, rather than simply redistilling a neutral grain spirit, William Chase have created this single botanical gin (or juniper vodka?) from their award winning potato based spirit. Labelled on one side of the bottle with "Limited Edition Chase Juniper Vodka", while the other side reads "Williams Single Botanical Gin", which camp are you in?
Much like the Williams GB Gin, the single botanical has Chase vodka spirit as the base, but is infused solely with juniper and created in very small batches of only 1000 bottles.
Clean and fresh aromas of leathery eucalyptus with delicate piney spice. The palate is clean with eucalyptus, lavender, camphor, pine and faint overripe banana garnished with mild black pepper. Earthy tones of juniper leave a clean peppery aftertaste.
Premium tonic garnished with a slice of lime.
