Forest Gin 42%

Forest Gin is family-created small batch gin, produced by Lindsay and Karl Bond in the forest near Macclesfield. To make it, they steep some classic gin botanicals (including organic juniper berries and coriander seeds) in organic grain spirit. They then take a pestle and mortar to bundles of botanicals which they forage from the Macclesfield Forest when they can – this includes wild bilberries, gorse flowers, raspberries and local moss, among others. This is distilled through their own copper condenser and blended with local spring water to bring it down to 42% ABV.

The distinctive English Porcelain bottles feature a screen-printed design by Suzy Taylor of a weasel among the flora of the forest. Weasels are awesome. This is a fact.

Fragrant and forest-y, earthy moss kicks things off, swiftly followed by subtle fruity notes, liquorice and a burst of cinnamon, with lingering piney juniper.
