This combination of two miniatures of international gold medal winning signature gin, together with a bottle of grapefruit bitters, is the perfect introduction to the Sky Wave art. Sky Wave Gin is a true handcrafted gin, distilled in ultra-micro batches, at the Bucknell Distillery in Oxfordshire, by real people, Rachel Hicks and Andy Parsons, who are passionate about creating exceptional gin.
For the gin, we adhere strictly to the London Dry standard - absolutely nothing is added after distillation other than the finest Oxfordshire spring water. Fresh and zingy nose; its aroma starts your mouth watering before you've even tried it. On tasting it opens with a delicate crisp, citrusy flavour, followed by a long smooth juniper led body, ending with quite an intense warm and spicy finish, making it very moreish and unusual. It has a smooth mouth feel and lingers like a velvet glove on your tongue. We lovingly combine 13 different botanicals from juniper and orris root, through grapefruit and orange, to cardamom and coriander to create our highly individual gin. We even use blackberries foraged from our village hedgerows, hand-picked at their ripest. This gin is nothing short of the pinnacle of the craft.
As for the Bitters, they are a very old tradition with gin. The original 'pink gin' used a few drops of Angostura Bitters to make the gin pink and with a slightly bitter flavour, long before the modern trend of coloured and flavoured gins. Sky Wave Grapefruit Bitters continues that tradition, and is a perfect complement to Sky Wave Gin, really bringing out the citrus flavours and enhancing our long lingering spiciness. Just put 2 or 3 drops in your G&T using the built-in dropper, for fabulous extra flavour. We make it in-house from the neutral grain spirit we use for our gin, similar citrus elements including of course red grapefruit, and a dash of gentian root. We serve it at 20% ABV to complement your gin perfectly.
