Tamworth Garden Wild Hops Gin
Hops have long been the darling of the beer world, and it is from the dry-hopping process in particular we drew the inspiration for our Wild Hop Gin. Cold distilling, like dry-hopping, emphasizes the floral attributes of fresh hops, rather than the bitterness that is brought out by boiling. We selected five varieties (Citra, Amarillo, Centennial, and Columbus, along with a NH heirloom vine we hand harvested locally) to infuse and distill using our rotovap process, then added structure to the gin with coriander, angelica, lemon, and ginger.
Like a classic New England IPA, this gin showcases the aromatic qualities of hops, with fruity and tropical notes fortified with piney juniper and floral, spicy coriander. Sip straight for a crisp, dry flavor, or taste the botanicals brought to life in a gin & tonic.
