"Wow, what a gin! ... with the complexity and quality of distillation this is really a spirit to be savoured. I don’t think I have ever tasted anything quite like it. Unique but very clearly a gin. A solid dose of juniper blends beautifully with the other botanicals giving away to a gentle sweetness that feels straight out of the Tokaji barrel."
- Rob Simpson, multi- award winning bartender, currently bar manager for World's 50 Best Restaurant 'The Clove Club'Introducing The Sourcing Table's exclusive Gin, made for us by acclaimed Cotswold distillery Capreolus. This limited edition bottling is a variation of Capreolus' award winning 'Garden Swift', made with 34 different botanicals. For this exciting collaboration, we decided to age the gin in a Tokaji barrel; kindly supplied by Királyudvar winery, Hungary. Our gin has a light, golden hue from the barrel ageing and is marked by delicious notes of blood orange, candied orange peel, subtle spices and wood smoke. Fancy a cocktail? Check out our 'Signature Serve', devised by Rob Simpson especially for you to recreate at home.
Capreolus distillery are tucked away in an old victorian greenhouse in the Cotswolds. It's an unassuming spot, but behind that greenhouse door lies the source of some of the UK's finest spirits - both eau de vie and gin.
"All the ingredients are treated with reverence. The time taken to pick through every single little berry to ensure they are of the highest quality, then the concentration of this in terms of flavour and effort shines through in each sniff & sip."- Rob Simpson, multi-award-winning bartender, currently bar manager for World 50 Best Restaurant 'The Clove Club'
