Half Hitch Gin

NV

In a Nutshell

Black Tea and Bergamot add an 'afternoon tea' element to this gin

Tasting Notes

Citrussy and fresh on the nose with a note of black tea and herbs poking through. The palate has an initial hit of peppery spice and juniper with a backbone of bergamot and black tea which both come to the forefront on the orange peel finish.

Production Notes

Tinctures and distillates made in The Vaults, Camden Lock. This time-intensive heritage craft is combined with modern day vacuum distillation – the latter preserves delicate flavours by being able to lower the ingredients’ boiling points. The resulting blends are layered and then further blended with a copper pot still gin which results in the 40% abv Distilled Gin. Half Hitch uses the finest single estate, Malawian Black Tea & Calabrian Bergamot - and an additional complement of English wood, pepper and hay. The whole leaf tea blend is from different harvests, fields and tea varietals across the estate. The key ingredient of Black Tea is re-blended each season to achieve the optimum flavour and keep consistency and requires the art of expert blending not the replication of a simple recipe. Bergamot, a natural cross between a bitter orange and a lemon, is from ancient citrus groves in Calabria, Southern Italy.
