Cambridge Distillery releases seasonal gin

UK-based Cambridge Distillery has launched Vintage 2021 Autumn Winter, the second bottling in its seasonal gin range.

The distillery’s Vintage 2021 Spring Summer was released in May 2022. The limited edition Autumn Winter iteration is being released in November this year. Master distiller and master of wine William Lowe commented: "Vintage 2021 Autumn Winter is a gin with real provenance and draws from the world of wine in terms of regional expression and vintage variation to ensure they are tangibly different from another." The liquid is made with botanicals gathered on meadows close to the distillery, and created with a ‘unique novo-dimensional distillation matrix’ in which temperature, timing and pressure are measured to tailor the treatment of the botanical. Lowe added: "Bringing this hyper-local approach using fresh botanicals combined with a pioneering approach to distillation and blending to our Vintage 2021 Autumn Winter gin, results in a true testimony of the dramatically changing autumn and winter seasons, reflective of the Cambridge Distillery meadows in early autumn 2021.” On the nose, aromas of lemon thyme and oregano can be sensed, while the palate boasts the same flavours, complemented by lovage and nasturtium, with a lingering finish. The gin is best served chilled over ice or as a rosemary Martini. The new launch marks the distillery’s 10th anniversary. Only 1,000 bottles will be available from Cambridge Distillery’s website and selected retailers, for RRP £150 (US$173) per 700ml.
