Twisted Nose Watercress Dry Gin
40.0% | 70cl
From the Winchester Distillery, this gin is beautifully presented in a bespoke glinting, swirling, blue-green glass bottle that ripples and refracts like the surface of a stream.
The name comes from the word the Romans used for watercress, "Nasturtium", which means twisted nose.
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, we’ve picked nine other botanicals – including juniper, locally grown lavender and coriander from the South Downs – which is slowly distilled to maintain their fresh and delicate aromas.
After distillation, the strong spirit is diluted to bottling strength of 40% with fresh 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!
Botanicals: juniper, grapefruit zest, cassia bark, fennel seed, orris, angelica, lavender and, most notably, locally-grown watercress.
