Warner's Distillery at Falls Farm, Northampton, began life in 2012 with the intention to make great gin, using farm-grown ingredients and sustainable practices.
Their small-batch Rhubarb Gin is very much an original, being the world’s first (according to them anyway), inspiring a whole heap of imitations. Originally made using rhubarb reportedly from Queen Victoria’s crop, and meant to be a limited edition, it was too good to stop.
As they say: "If anyone tells you making rhubarb gin is fun, they’re blatantly doing it wrong. You have to squeeze tonnes and tonnes of the stuff to get enough juice. Even then, you don’t know what colour your final batch will have. All thanks to pectin, a volatile component that – look, just trust us. It’s a total faff.
And yet we persevere. Blood, sweat, tears. Plus rhubarb juice."
Either way, it's a naturally pink, delicately sweet, fruity gin with lots of tangy rhubarb flavour, backed up with the subtle botanical punch of gin. Great mixed with tonic, especially Mediterranean style tonics, as well as ginger ale for a more fiery finish. Just add an orange wedge to top it off, sit back and enjoy the sunshine!
