6 O'Clock Gin
Damson Gin // 750 ml
Nearly 30 years ago, Edward and Penny Kain owned a fruit farm. As a sideline, they started making delicious fruity liqueurs and sold them with some considerable success. The first incarnation of the family’s gin recipe was created as a base for their delightfully piquant Sloe Gin. Some years later, Michael and Felicity took over their parents’ now prosperous distillery. Guided by the family expertise in liqueurs, they set about perfecting the gin recipe. The wonderful flavor of 6 O’clock Gin emerged through experimentation: carefully selected botanicals, precisely balanced for a refreshingly clean taste.
Fantastically fruity, Damson Gin is definitely something special. Masses of luscious, hand-picked British damsons are left to steep for six months or more in strikingly smooth London Dry Gin. They then add a bit of sugar—just enough to balance the natural tartness of the fruit. Slowly matured, the resulting rich, ruby-red gin is velvety and smooth with an intense depth of flavor and fruity dryness. Unlike many fruit gins, it delivers quite a kick.
Juniper berries are what gives gin its signature flavor, pine and citrus notes abound. European coriander seeds provide a familiar flavor with citrus notes that complement juniper and add wood and richness. Dried sweet orange peel brings mild marmalade characters and also some sweetness; a key part of our smoothness. Angelica root offers an earthy flavor with a herbal bitterness not dissimilar to wormwood. Winter savory is a Mediterranean herb from the same family as rosemary and thyme and brings green woody flavors and aromas. Dried orris root powder gives a sweet violet scent to the gin and binds or fixes aromas of the other botanicals holding them into the gin. Finally, elderflower imparts a gentle floral aroma with some freshness too.
