This is a juicy citrus forward, modern classic, with a nod to the past. St. Giles in London was the location of many notorious gin shops in the 1700s!
St. Giles was set up by Simon Melton, a gin enthusiast for many years and a commercial diver lucky enough to travel all over the world sampling many different gins. The recipe was created and refined with the help of head distiller Pete Margree. He uses their bespoke copper still, Anna, to infuse the 11 carefully selected botanicals including rose petals, lemon grass and grains of paradise. Why St. Giles? As well as notoriously once being the location of many London gin shops, St. Giles is also the name of the historic road in Norwich where Simon and his family have their own 18th century shop!
Enjoy lemon and a hint of cardamom with notes of tobacco and biscuit on the nose. This develops into a smooth citrus palate, with a hint of lemon and orange sherbet, that increases and lingers for a tasty finish.
