Gently distilled with peppery watercress, resulting in a perfectly balanced dry gin.
Tasting Notes: Twisted Nose takes your senses on a journey into Hampshire’s fragrant green world of watercress, crystalline chalk streams and long summer days spent at the water’s edge.
Crafted to capture the extraordinary natural habitat of where it’s made, the award-winning spirit is gently distilled with fresh, peppery watercress to give it a unique and uplifting twist. Combined with nine other carefully selected botanicals, the final result is a perfectly balanced dry gin. The taste is intensely herbaceous yet delicately floral, beginning with soft sweet citrus notes, developing spicy undertones and finishing with a peppery sparkle from the fresh watercress grown at the distillery.
To support and balance the watercress, they have picked nine other botanicals – including juniper, locally grown lavender and coriander from the South Downs – which they distil slowly to maintain their fresh and delicate aromas.
After distillation they dilute the strong spirit to bottling strength with their own spring water extracted on site. This is the same mineral-rich water that has filtered through the chalk of the South Downs to feed the ancient river systems and watercress beds of the region.
The result is an intense, fragrant and vibrant gin.
Presented in a bespoke bottle that ripples and refracts like the surface of a stream, Twisted Nose is a vibrant celebration of provenance and place.
