Half Hitch Gin
‘The G with Tea’, a black tea and bergamot, small batch distilled gin. Spicy pepper and juniper are balanced by sweet citrus and rich tea.
Fifty years after the last gin production left Camden Lock, a lost, industrial glory has now been unearthed and reinvigorated by Half Hitch, who combine time-intensive heritage craft with modern day vacuum distillation. Blending Malawian black tea and Calabrian bergamot with a complement of English wood, pepper and hay, this is an exciting, modern twist on a classic gin.
Spicy notes of bell pepper and juniper meet citrus notes of sweet orange, nutmeg and a rich black tea. There are hints of woody spice, touches of bitter lemon and a slight grassiness that clears out the top with the smallest touch of tannin.
A VERY nice gin! One that stands out from the crowd, can be drank without a garnish with its spicy notes & citrus scent. Lovely with 1724 tonic! 😋
This gun mixes great with orange juice as the chap in the distillery recommends, but my favourite was to actually have it on the rocks, a particularly smooth gin with great flavour.
