Cotswold Vegan Gin is a very tasty, very special gin and one of our favourites at Seven Cellars.
The Juniper berries come from Macedonia, coriander seed from Morrocco and angelica root from Poland which creates the classic foundation for this London Dry-style Gin. They then add Cotswolds lavender from nearby Snowshill and Egyptian bay leaves. The citrus element comes from freshly-peeled lime and pink grapefruit zest - unusually they use fresh peels rather than dried because of the greater quantity of essential oils. This entails having to peel several hundred limes and grapefruits per week, by hand. The final botanicals are cardamom seed and black peppercorn, to give a hint of spice. Tough work, but totally worth it for the vibrant flavours and rich mouthfeel that make Cotswold Gin stand out from the crowd.
