To celebrate #WorldGinDay here is a low down of some fabulous local Gins.
“We produce every bottle by hand from Matilda, our copper still in our little distillery in Marlow. We source our Juniper carefully to give our spirit a fantastic taste, with strong notes of pine. We add tones of citrus from the best quality lemongrass and fresh lime with liquorice to give a more viscous texture. Angelica provides a long lasting flavour; while hops grown in the UK add a spicy, honey and earthy aroma that also lets us celebrate and recognise the brewing history and heritage, past and present of our riverside town.”
