With oodles of optimism and a real passion for gin, Conker Spirit, Dorset’s first gin distillery, have crafted the rather special, Conker Gin.
Unencumbered by tradition and helped along by a love of gin and a desire to create a fine spirit from Dorset, Conker Spirit was founded by Rupert Holloway in 2014. Using no gimmicks and without a secret family recipe handed down through the generations, Conker have tweaked and fine-turned their spirit into something wonderful.
Using ten carefully chosen botanicals, this is a dry and light gin. Subtle gorse flowers and elderberries are beautifully melded with the pine of juniper and avid samphire. Conker Gin is refreshingly light with a good force of flavour.
Whilst not my favourite at the festival, Conker gin is punchy and has plenty of body. A nice gin.
