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 in to a number of different Editions.
You may notice a pearlescent glow when tonic or ice is added to Whitby gin. It can go from clear to cloudy because of the flavoursome oils released from the botanicals. This can happen because they choose not to chill-filter the gin. To do this would remove the oils and in turn reduce the bold flavour.
Juniper, coriander seed, citrus peels and Liquorice Root. Along with Heather tip, Yorkshire Moors Honey and Sugar Kelp, pepper dulse.
Well balanced spice and sweetness from the juniper and citrus, with savoury hints coming through cleanly from the kelp and heather tip.
Premium tonic garnished with a pink grapefruit slice & a sprig of rosemary.
