|Whittakers Gin, The Original|
The Whittaker's set out to follow their passion for both the Yorkshire countryside and gin and produce an artisan Gin (Harrogate Distillery Ltd), from their home - Harewell House Farm in the heart of Nidderdale in North Yorkshire. Their aim was to produce a small batch, handcrafted spirit which reflects the Yorkshire countryside in a bottle. A predominantly Juniper based gin with Coriander and Angelica Root. Bilberries (formerly known as Whortleberries) bring sharpness, complementing the Juniper berries keeping the gin character intact. Hawthorne berries, which grow on the beautiful hardy trees and hedgerows throughout the countryside, bring background sweetness. Bog Myrtle grows on the stunning Yorkshire moors and has a spicy aroma that tastes both bitter and balsamic at the same time (rich like vanilla). Some breweries still use Bog Myrtle to produce sweet heather ale and in Medieval times, it was used as an alternative to hops, at 42% it packs a punch and makes a classic Gin and Tonic!
