Kaffir Lime & Lemongrass Distilled Gin – our multi-award winning original gin. Extremely refreshing, exotic, fragrant and aromatic, perfect for a hot summers day.
Light citrus and juniper on the nose. To taste, a viscous mouthfeel with immediate citrus balanced with juniper, slowly giving way to fresh lemongrass. Following are gentle notes of cubeb, intriguing hints of Tonka bean followed by a warm, smooth and satisfying finish.
This is a truly unique Gin carefully crafted with eighteen quality botanicals, our most complex Gin to date, our original recipe and the first of its kind. Our kaffir lime leaves are grown and sourced from a UK supplier and some from our very own little tree!
So smooth this gin can be savoured neat over ice. As a G&T we recommend using a non-flavoured premium tonic to allow the gin to express itself. Garnish with a slice of fresh ginger, a sprig of mint or slice of lime.
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.
