Corner 53 Umami Gin

NV

In a Nutshell

A really unusual, but rather delicious gin!

Tasting Notes

Rich and savoury, full of earthy notes with a dry finish - this is an unusual flavour profile but will make a cracking red snapper!

Production Notes

Based around the idea of trying to capture the fifth flavour of Umami, this one actually came about during a chat after a few beers. Jamie asked Tom if he could try distilling mushrooms, on the basis that he was actually allergic to them and wanted to try it. A purely mushroom distillate tasted awful(!) but it fell into this idea of making something right at the other end of the flavour spectrum.

They set to work, enlisting the help of several chefs, and put together a list of suitable fruit and vegetables for capturing Umami, eventually settling on roasted butternut squash, shiitake mushroom, sun dried tomatoes and rosemary, on top of much more traditional botanicals.
