Daffy's Gin

Whilst this gin is made in the middle of Scotland (UK), the makers looked the world over for the best ingredients. This was because they wanted to create a gin which was "a gin like no other".

They start by using pure wheat grain spirit, which they source from northern France. This is distilled in a single batch copper still, using a manner similar to malt whisky (they do make it in Scotland after all!).

The botanicals they chose are a combination of the traditional found in a number of gins (juniper, coriander seeds, angelica root, cassia bark, orange peel and orris root), along with the less known within gin, Lebanese mint, and some rare variety lemons.

These carefully selected botanicals are stepped, and then distilled in the base spirit, which creates a complex and exceedingly well balanced gin. 

The result is something quite different within the gin world. The addition of the lebanese mint brings a real freshness, and this is joined with other notes from the citrus, along with a hint of toffee and spiced caramel.

This is a slightly higher than usual alcohol content for a "non-navy" gin, which created a powerful heart to the gin - and brings the botanical flavours forward.

Interesting fact.... the name Daffy comes from a slang term for Gin in Britain during the 1800's. It became so well used, even the famous writer Charles Dickens mentions it. Daffy is also seen as the Goddess of Gin (having been written about in the 1700's).

Perfect Serve

As this is such a smooth gin, it can (for those who really enjoy a good gin) be enjoyed on its own, maybe with a little ice. Here it is well rounded, and smooth - with a long finish.

However, we prefer this as a longer drink, and like to allow the unique flavours to come out. For a D&T (Daffy's & Tonic), pour 50ml of the gin into a large glass filled with ice, and top up with 150 - 200ml of neutral tonic (we find Double Dutch Indian Tonic works well, but any neutral tonic should be fine). Garnish with a slice of lime, and a sprig of mint.
