“A wonderful texture and weight to this clean gin, dominated by classic juniper forward botanical with pronounced citrus notes and a pleasing orange finish. This dry gin that delivers a remarkable clean tea on the palate, with the lovely waft of black tea on the nose while drinking.” – Great Taste Awards 2019 judges comments.
The tea leaves used in our Earl Grey Distilled Gin are sourced from a local independent family business specialising in high quality teas for the very best quality.
Enjoy in a G&T with a premium non-flavoured tonic, plenty of ice and a slice of lemon. Alternatively try an Earl Grey Martini to really experience those tea and bergamot notes.
Twisting Spirits was born in Oxfordshire and operated from our tiny converted garage in 2017. We’ve since expanded and have a small unit in neighbouring Gloucestershire where we plan to develop more exciting new Gins. Richard and I still distil, fill and label each and every bottle by hand, passionately produced using hot and cold distillation techniques to delivery a massive burst of flavour.
We craft gins that are genuinely different than others in terms of flavour, quality and packaging. Our gins have bold flavour profiles with bright modern packaging and transparency of ingredients.
Using a unique dual distillation process we first produce a fine Gin using traditional processes and equipment. Each distillation run is tiny. Meanwhile, the lighter speciality botanicals are cold distilled under vacuum using a rotary evaporator. Why the cold distillation? Well, the main reason is to preserve the delicate tastes and aromas that would otherwise be transformed, cooked, muted or even lost altogether in the high temperatures inherent to the traditional Alembic still process.
Finally, the two distillations are ‘twisted’ together to produce the finished Gin – perfectly balanced and bursting with fresh aromas and taste. Our current range consists of three premium Gins initially (We’ll be adding more exciting Gins soon); Douglas-Fir, Kaffir Lime and Lemongrass and Earl Grey Gin.
