Made in the heart of the Dartmoor National Park, Carabus Gin (after the Blue Ground Beetle) is distilled with 15 botanicals including woodland flavours of hawthorn and rowan berries, nettles, wood sorrel and hazelnuts.
Rowan and hawthorn berries give a fresh, fruity tang to start the flavour journey. Nettles and wood sorrel add a zing leafy note, while cubeb, cardamom and cassia give subtle spice notes. The hazelnuts lend a lovely weight and texture.
“Creamy and smooth overall. The use of sorrel and nettles builds a woodland feel, hazelnuts add texture, while the hawthorn and rowan keep it fresh. One to add with soda rather than tonic to get the full spectrum of flavours they have layered in. “Olivier Ward, Editor, Spirits Beacon
