Mayfield Sussex Hop Gin
Created by James Rackham, founder of artisanal spirits company, Emporia Brands, liveryman of The Worshipful Company of Distillers and resident of Mayfield, East Sussex. The dramatic label depicts the story of Saint Dunstan and The Devil, an epic event which, as the story goes, happened in the 10th Century in Mayfield Village, East Sussex. Hops were discovered as a wild hop growing in local hedgerows in Sussex, and is now cultivated, by award-winning hop farmer Andrew Hoad, in just one acre of his thirty acre hop farm in Salehurst. Sussex Hop is now an approved variety and gives an amazing citrus and hop character to the fabulous Sussex gin. Mayfield Sussex Hop Gin is a recipe of 8 natural botanicals. Juniper berries of course, the signature botanical, followed by the Sussex Hop, orange peel, lemon peel, coriander, angelica, orris and liquorice. Each botanical is micro distilled in a copper pot still, then brought together to create a unique personality. A diabolically delectable gin from the home of the good St. Dunstan, Mayfield, E. Sussex.
Tasting Notes: Zesty lime and orange citrus, pine fresh juniper, cracked black pepper, parma violets (orris root) and liquorice. Dry piney juniper with pronounced black pepper and cinnamon spice, sea salt, zesty citrus and faint floral notes.
