THE BOTANICALS

A BLENDING JOURNEY LIKE NO OTHER...

Our botanical blend has been selected based upon three main principles - taste, scent and molecular structure. 

You may be surprised that we have chosen our botanicals on their molecular structure - however we want to ensure that you are transported on a journey rather than just a taste.  By understanding the structure of botanicals, we can pair and combine flavours to create a wonderfully seamless journey.  It is an essential part of the selection, as it takes into account the solubility and miscibility, coupled with the interconnectivity with other botanicals.

By selecting only the finest ingredients we can produce a spirit which is smooth and delectable, so that you can fully appreciate the piquant flavours and delicate aromas.

We have kept a couple of the botanicals secret, can you guess what they are?

"JUNIPER DEFINES GIN" Gin Foundry

Our fruit blend starts with the berry synonymous with all Gin spirits.. Juniper is the queen of the botanicals and provides the base and ubiquitous flavour profile for all dry Gin spirits. We source the finest juniper berries to ensure that the scent and the taste are a joy to the palate.

FRUITS TO PACK A PUNCH

Pink Grapefruit is such a gorgeous fleshy fruit which is sweeter than its other citrussy counterparts and a perfect companion to our botanical blend. The Mandarin leaf is used to lift and give a heady scent to our recipe. Its such a juicy fruit that using the leaf makes sure the blend is not overpowered.

HERBS TO COMPLIMENT...

Our herb blend has been carefully selected to provide not just incredible scents to our Gin (think nature, woodland and fresh aromas to accompany the florals) but also to add depth to the taste profile which emerges as you take your sip. 

The flavours come through as they course through your taste buds, providing you with a unique and novel journey of discovery which has many chapters to uncover via experimenting with different condiments and tonics. 

An interesting fact about coriander - one in seven people say that the leafy herb tastes like soapy bubblebath! This is all down to genetics - there is a certain gene which detects a molecular scent found in tasty green leaves. Do not worry however, our Gin is completely bubblebath free!

FLORALS TO FINISH

The word weeds is completely banned at Worsley Gin HQ; we believe that every flower has a place in the world and the selection of dandelions and buttercups pays homage to this principle!

Wild flowers which grow anywhere and are super resilient, not to mention having the ability to add to the depth of our taste and richness of the spirit will always be heroes in our book.

Roses are particularly special to our MD Ned, who regularly visits his Dad Franko at his home down the road in Worsley where he boasts a wonderful garden full of colourful blooms. They hold a special place in their hearts, and it seemed fitting that they would also perfectly compliment the flavour profile and add a dimension to the palate that makes our Gin truly exceptional.
