Traditional. Bold. Mellow. Time-honoured. Artisan crafted. Small batch distilled.
London, 1743 – people rioted against a tax on gin. A riot over gin!
It’s that commitment & passion that captured our attention.
This gin is founded on that rebellion.
Bright and fresh citrus present initially with bold aromatics in play. Mandarin & orange are punctuated by hints of fennel, star anise & cardamom, revealing a savoury element. Notes of spiced pear & quince on the mid-palate provide robustness with tropical fruits giving balance. A kaffir lime finish bites through to provide a strong clean finish.
The tropical flavours coming through in The Riot are best suited to a lemon or lime garnish to accentuate the robust nature of the gin.
