Shiso Gin - Great Taste Star Award Winner 2023
Made with our own Dorset-grown purple shiso, this is a delicate yet flavoursome London dry gin. A balance of traditional Japanese flavours of shiso, yuzu and sudachi with English botanicals of juniper, coriander and bay.
The subtle shiso flavours of basil, mint and caraway are enhanced by the sublime citrus and herbaceous notes for a gin that is smooth, refreshing and perfectly balanced - the delicate flavours of the 6 botanicals, perfectly preserved by an expertly crafted distillation method, leaving an incredibly satisfying texture.
Shiso is a member of the mint family with a savoury herb-like quality that is likened to basil or caraway with a hint of citrus. We grow the purple Shiso leaves on the farm in Dorset. Yuzu is a cross between a wild citrus and a sour mandarin, with complex notes of lemon, grapefruit and mandarin while Sudachi is a citrus with a lime flavour and peppery, herbal undertones. The other botanicals, Juniper, Coriander and Bay, are a simple, more traditional collection of gin botanicals to balance with the Asian-inspired flavours.
Paired with a good quality tonic water, this creates a divine G&T, make a Japanese Tom Collins with yuzu juice in place of lemon for a herbaceous, citrusy long drink.
