Following the success of the Cambridge Gin Spring – Summer 2013 blend, the Autumn – Winter 2013 has arrived to brighten up the increasingly dark evenings.
Created in The Cambridge Distillery, Cambridge Gin is the UK’s first seasonal gin. The Autumn – Winter blend features botanicals grown and foraged in Cambridge from Midsummer’s Day onwards.
Each botanical is macerated and distilled individually under vacuum to create just 600ml at a time. These are painstakingly collected throughout the season, then balanced and blended to produce just 50 litres of this beautifully crafted gin. Each bottle of Cambridge Gin Autumn – Winter 2013 is bottled, signed and sealed by hand, and available exclusively in Selfridge’s.
We recommend tasting Autumn – Winter 2013 over ice in a short glass. The initial warmth of juniper is softened with the herbaceous rosemary mid-note. Fresh nettle lends a crisp character, balanced with the sweetness of elderberry. As the ice melts, gradual dilution reveals the gentle spice of ginger and fennel which combine to provide a lingering, evolving finish.
Bottled at 44% ABV, the Autumn – Winter 2013 is not only a product of the season, but also designed to be enjoyed during the season. Rich, full-bodied with a touch of spice, it’s the perfect winter warmer.
Cambridge Gin is the seasonal showcase for The Cambridge Distillery, produced in tiny batches exclusively for Selfridges.
