We knew we had made an absolutely delicious London Dry gin but it’s always nice to have an establishment like the IWSC agree!
Here at Hawkridge Distillers we are thrilled that “25 Yards” which we created for the Michelin Star restaurant, The Woodspeen, has taken such a prestigious prize in the 2021 awards.
To compliment the exquisite culinary delights of The Woodspeen’s head chef Olly Rouse, we needed to create something very special. Using a carefully selected blend of botanicals, several of which are hand-picked from the restaurant’s own herb garden (which is 25 Yards from the kitchen, hence the gin’s name), the result is a complex and beautifully balanced spirit which The Woodspeen’s clientele seems to be really enjoying.
The judges at the IWSC scored the gin at 92/100 points and described it as:
“ Ripening citrus zest to the nose and juniper and ginseng identifiable on the palate. A slightly dry, spiced finish. “
To get your hands on a bottle of 25 Yards gin, you will need to visit The Woodspeen .. though book early. As you can imagine, the queue for a table there is getting quite long!
