In total, there are 34 botanicals used in Garden Swift (formerly Garden Tiger gin), in a secret recipe. The Maker, Barney Wilczak says “We hold our botanicals close to our chest but we can hint at a few. From native verbascum flowers, Tillia cordata (our native lime tree – not citrus) through to organic Sicillian Tarocco blood orange, our ingredients are traded, wild and grown in our gardens.” Juniper is a given and we know that wormwood is in there too, as well as – as the label dictates – flowers, spice and drying resins. This is a high class small batch gin which deserves your undivided attention.
Barney Wilczak is a technician and perfectionist, who started up Capreolus Distillery in 2014 in his birthplace of Gloucestershire. His passion for the perfect gin is demonstrated in his ability to capture the peak of his ingredients’ ripeness for the best and fullest expression of the spirit possible.
Tonic water, garnished with blood orange/orange. But just add a couple of ice cubes to a glass and risk this one neat, giving you a chance to taste its marvelous complex flvours.
