Chilgrove Bramble Gin



Chilgrove Bramble Edition Gin

As with all our unique spirits, the story of our Bramble Edition Gin starts not with blackberries but with grapes. We combine 100% grape-alcohol with crystal-clear Sussex natural mineral water, from South Downs Water, along with twelve carefully balanced botanicals including blackberry.

The resulting London Dry Gin is then infused with stunning whole English blackberries for a full lunar cycle to fully capture the essence of this Gloriously English fruit.

The result is a seriously-smooth, ruby-red gin just bursting with fruit. Introducing blackberries carefully in these two separate parts of the gin-making process ensures that juniper remains at the forefront which, coupled with our bottling-strength of 42% abv, truly earns its title of ‘Super-Premium Gin’.

Tasting notes

Clear, deep ruby-red.

On the nose
Clean, piney juniper backed up by soft blackberry, faint stone-fruit.

On the palate
Clean, smooth and assertive, soft blackberry and redcurrant balancing the fresh juniper, well complimented by crisp citrus and subtle spice.

Warm berry fruit in harmony with dry juniper. Warming and yet very refreshing.

Beautifully balanced. A serious gin with layers of complex berry fruit. Every one of the 12 botanicals play their part to deliver a gin as well suited to a classic G&T as to more ambitious contemporary serves.
