INGREDIENTS & PROCESS
Forest Gin is distilled by the Bond family in batches of a maximum of 85 bottles at a time. Each bottle contains these key elements:
These ingredients are ground by hand using a pestle & mortar, before being distilled by us here in Cheshire. The alcohol vapour and the flavoursome oils from the botanicals reach our copper condenser, where they are immediately cooled. This fragrant spirit is then blended with our spring water to create unfiltered London Dry Gin of the very highest quality.
In a desire to try to source their ingredients and materials from within the local area, the natural vessel to hold the Gin is Staffordshire Porcelain.
Since 1810, Wade Ceramics have been crafting the highest quality ceramic products, with their items being renowned and collected all over the world. They make the bespoke bottles using many traditional methods, and the final bottle is fully vitrified, meaning they are fired to a temperature which ensures the porcelain will not absorb any moisture, flavour, odour or stains.
The Forest Gin Artwork is a one of a kind commission by the respected Paper cut artist Suzy Taylor...
Suzy hand cuts all of her artwork from a single piece of paper using a scalpel and a magnifying glass in a painstaking process.
The team at Wade then apply the artwork by hand to each bottle. The final piece is a practical, yet beautiful, porcelain decanter, which we hope that you will re-use and treasure for years to come.
THE Rachel Bates X FOREST GIN COLLABORATION
We are thrilled to work with the Bond Family not only because we love their delicious product which fits so perfectly with our own brand and curated e-boutique, but as Rachel & Katie are Cheshire girls born and bred, we are delighted to be working with such a wonderful local producer also flying the flag for Cheshire and the North West of England.
We love to serve the very best wines, champagnes, digestives and aperitifs in our beautiful crystal glassware, so to complement our Double Old-Fashioned Tumblers from all of Rachel's beautiful Crystal collections we decide to choose Forest Gin as the official Gin for our brand.
As a Positive Luxury brand to trust, quality, artisan skill, care of people, operations, processes and sustainability are incredibly important to us within all of our own business processes and carefully selected collaborations, our partnership with Forest Gin, is a celebration of all of this.
FOREST GIN TASTING & SERVING
If you are experiencing Forest Gin for the first time, we always suggest that you try it neat to begin with. Swirl a small amount around a nosing glass and breathe it in before tasting....
The Gin is cool and clear in the glass, with a complex yet light fragrance of the wild ingredients.
The predominant initial taste is of Juniper, with added citrus notes from the coriander seed.
Next, the sweetness of the berries comes through, accompanied by herbaceous notes provided by ferns, flowers and pine.
The finish is long, deep and earthy due to the use of fresh Moss in the distillation.
As a longer drink, here are some great recipes.
