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. It'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 pruning's 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.

Nose: Sweet with green apple laces, a little liquorice, juniper and elderflower. Perhaps even a hint of toffee...?
Palate: Crisp apples up front, slowly becoming juicier, with orange peels chiming in from the side. Dryer near the end with classic gin herbaceousness.
Finish: Refreshing with plenty of juniper and citrus.
Premium/Elderflower tonic garnished with fresh lemon and ginger.
This makes a great wet martini.
