A gin bursting with Essex spirit…
I set out to create a gin that shouts out proudly about where it’s from. The name is always greeted with a smile and its hugely memorable. It’s not about stereotypes though. It’s about being recognised as coming from Essex and being exceptionally proud of it.
With the gin, it’s a priority to create products premium in taste that celebrate the beauty of the county and its landscape. In the Signature Gin, the county flower of Essex provides poppy seeds with combine perfectly with eight other carefully selected natural botanicals.
And the inspiration for the orange blossom…. I spent many years living around Valencia in Spain. The sweet scent of orange blossom takes me back to the orange groves. I couldn’t think of a better way to start enjoying the gin than with this beautiful aroma.
The gin is handcrafted using traditional methods. The design is modern. This is celebrating the beauty of Essex with a fresh approach.
A unique gin experience…..
From the start I knew this was more than being just about the gin. I set out to create a Gin Experience, and that had to be in the county town of Essex.
The premises in Chelmsford, when fully open, will house the Distillery, Shop and Gin School.
