LATITUDE TOP PICK!

The Hepple estate is a sort of Gin Eden. It lies in the wild and remote Northumberland National Park, home to four of the UK's cleanest rivers, its darkest skies and some of its wooliest, most charming people. Water of great purity rises from deep within the sandstone hills that surround the distillery. As well as providing the water, these springs sustain a tremendous variety of aromatic plants. Including the ancient juniper from which the team pick the young green berries so unique to Hepple Gin, but also the stands of Sweet Gale (or Bog Myrtle) by the burns, the Douglas Fir in the woods and the lovage and blackcurrant in the Hepple garden.

Hepple uses three different techniques - CO2 Extraction, Glass Vacuum Still and a Copper-Pot Still - to capture the full range of flavour from their chosen botanicals; Juniper, Green Juniper, Douglas Fir, Bog Myrtle, Blackcurrant Leaf, Blackcurrants, Amalfi Lemon, Coriander Seeds, Fennel Seeds, Liquorice, Orris Root, Angelica and Lovage.

Tasting Notes

Nose: There is an immediate fresh scent of green apple, bright grapefruit and spicy juniper. This then opens up to reveal underlying notes of Douglas Fir, and fragrant blackcurrant.

Palate: The initial fresh citrus flavours evolve into unexpected ripe cantaloupe melon, the spicy fragrant juniper continues to coat the palate. There is a luscious sweet mouthfeel, which is both juicy and quenching.

Finish: Extremely long and this is where the juniper reveals itself further with flavours alternating between sandalwood and cedar with a notable savoury presence that complements the sweet blackcurrant and liquorice. The sweet juiciness is maintained throughout the finish.

Perfect Serve

This makes one of the best martinis you could possibly try! Premium tonic garnished with a slice of lemon.

Please note: Vintages may vary. If you require a specific vintage please contact us in advance to check.
