Tamworth Garden Spruce Gin
Once the deciduous trees shed their leaves, all that’s left are the piney, aromatic evergreens around our distillery. We were drawn in particular to Spruce tips, the new growth that has long been used in beers, medicinal teas, and even Iroquois cures for scurvy. Soft and coniferous, spruce is a natural partner for gin’s traditional botanical, juniper.
These citrusy, fresh evergreen elements are backed with warmth from birch oil, nutmeg, and cinnamon, while bay leaves, tarragon and gentian add woodsy depth. To tie these more unusual botanicals together, coriander and lemon peel add familiar gin flavors.
