Mayfield Sussex Hop Gin is a diabolically delectable gin recipe of eight natural botanicals. Juniper berries are the signature botanical, followed by Sussex hop, orange peel, lemon peel, coriander, angelica, orris and liquorice.
Each botanical is micro distilled in a copper pot still, then brought together to create a unique personality.
It’s created by James Rackham, founder of artisanal spirits company, Emporia Brands, who uses wild, Sussex hop growing from hedgerows to give an amazing citrus and hop character to the gin.
TASTING NOTES: Zesty lime and orange citrus, pine fresh juniper, cracked black pepper,
parma violets from the orris roots and liquorice. On the palate, dry piney juniper with pronounced cracked black pepper and cinnamon spice, sea salt, zesty citrus and faint floral notes.
PERFECT SERVE: Add 25ml gin to a half pint glass, squeeze of lime, top with your favourite IPA. Or, simply serve with a Mediterranean or Elderflower tonic.
