Sing Gin is made in the Dales village of Kettlesing. Their founder, Ian, installed a little copper pot still in his cellar, surrounded himself with botanicals and began experimenting. After recreating his favourite gins and getting the hang of which botanicals worked best together, he developed a recipe that captured the spirit of his beloved Yorkshire Dales.
Sing Gin is made from grape-based spirit rather than grain. Grape delivers a silky smoothness that, in Sing Gin's opinion, grain can't quite match. Grape was actually an ingredient in the world's very first juniper spirits back in the 13th century, so it's a nice nod to tradition.
Juniper, mint, orange peel and flax are among the seven botanicals used.
Nose: Pronounced juniper followed by slight sweet and citrus notes with a hint of spice, and floral after-tones.
Palate: juniper balanced with slight sweetness.
Finish: Long finish, leaving a subtly pleasurable tingle on the edges of the tongue.
Premium tonic garnished with an orange zest or a sprig of mint.
