Silent Pool Distillers have released a new variant, their first new release in 5 years, called Silent Pool Rose Expression Gin.
The gin is distilled with a unique rose tea infusion to create a distinctive yet delicate rose flavour.
Rose Expression Gin shares the Silent Pool Gin DNA in terms of its complexity and refreshingly individual character, however the core recipe has been refined to compliment and enhance the rose notes.
Some of the original botanicals – pear, bergamot, cubeb and cardamom – have been increased whilst lemon becomes the leading citrus.
The rose is added during distillation alongside the other botanicals, not afterwards, making for a beautifully subtle flavour enhancement.
The bottle carries a pretty pink copper ribbon to denote the rose flavour and could make a great gift for gin lovers for Valentine’s Day or Mother’s Day.
The Silent Pool serving suggestion is to afruidd ice, elderflower tonic and garnish with a slice of fresh pear.
If you are lucky enough to live near the Silent Pool distillery you’ll be able to take advantage of their gin refill service in which you take your empty bottles to get refilled from a special machine.
Silent Pool Rose Expression Gin isn’t available online or in major supermarkets, instead you can find it on sale at the Silent Pool Distillery or at selected independent retailers. For a list of the retailers stocking it check out the Silent Pool website.
