Givinity Gin Handmade Goodness

[19/04/16] 

You’d have to live in a hole in the ground not to have recognized the global renaissance that artisanal gin is enjoying at the moment.

From gin joints to home bars, this complex and historic spirit is captivating palates and imaginations, with traditional gin recipes given a twist of modernity by inspired distillers who are using new methods and botanicals to create homages to great gins of old.

One of those innovative lads is Alan Colton who, with wife Rebecca, has created one of the most elegant gins to come out of the British Isles in a long while. Givinity gin, which will soon be available on our fair shores, is an ultra-luxurious, handcrafted London Dry Gin styled spirit made in the verdant countryside of Cambridgeshire, outside London. Made with a captivating array of botanicals, including tried-and-tested classics like juniper, coriander and angelica, as well as modern upstarts like rose, Szechuan pepper, lime and mandarin zest, Givinity is produced in small batches and bottled at 40% abv in elegant and sleek crystal decanters with gold accents that will look well smart on your home bar. Although it’s as pure as driven snow (snow laced with alcohol) you’ll probably want to mix this luscious drop with a boutique tonic or a dash of elderflower, served tall to herald in the summer months ahead.

Beloved, we join hands here to pray for gin. An aridity defiles us. Our innards thirst for the juice of juniper.” — Wallace Thurman, Infants of the Spring
