Caught in glinting, swirling, blue-green glass, Twisted Nose invites you to taste with your eyes even before you’ve pulled the oak stopper to breathe in the fragrance as you pour the spirit. The taste is intensely herbaceous yet delicately floral, beginning with soft sweet citrus notes, developing spicy undertones and finishing with a peppery sparkle from the fresh watercress grown at the distillery.
To support and balance the watercress, we’ve picked nine other botanicals – including juniper, locally grown lavender and coriander from the South Downs – which we distill slowly to maintain their fresh and delicate aromas.
After distillation we dilute the strong spirit to bottling strength with our own spring water extracted on site. This is the same mineral-rich water that has filtered through the chalk of the South Downs to feed the ancient river systems and watercress beds of the region.
The result is an intense, fragrant and vibrant gin. We think it's the most refreshing gin we've ever tasted (but perhaps we're just a little biased).
Serve with a good tonic and a slice of pink grapefruit for the perfect G&T – or with Vermouth for an exceptional Martini.
