Adnams distillery based in Sole Bay Brewery in Southwold has been brewing beers since 1872 and have recently expanded their repertoire of spirits, namely handcrafted Vodka, Whisky and now Gin. Although the beer still plays a central part in their every creation – yes even in the gin… In 2008, the chairman of Adnams brewery began exploring the idea of distilling. Following four years of hard work the distillery was up and running in early 2010.

Adnams Distilled Gin (also known as Adnams Copper House Gin) -

Made with juniper berries, orris root, coriander seed, cardamom pod, sweet orange peel and hibiscus flower, this is an approachable gin, great for summer sipping. The cardamom & hibiscus flower burst through in the gin. It’s a touch buttery and has a particular mouth feel – perfect for a Dirty Martini. The Hibiscus, while not unique to Adnams Gin, sets its flavour profile apart and makes the gin quite distinct. The bitter, floral flavours of the petals make for quite a particular taste and one to seek out if you see it on the shelf of a bar.

Adnams First Rate Finest Cut Gin -

Not content with just one flagship gin, they also produce a second called First Rate Finest Cut Gin. This is a much bigger beast in comparison to its sister. Made with a complex blend of 13 botanicals rather than six, and a higher ABV of 48% it feels like a bolder, more potent gin. With the usual suspects in the botanical mix (juniper berries, coriander seed, cardamom pod, orange peel & liquorice root) it delivers aromatic spices mingled with a softened Juniper and hints of citrus. The more unusual vanilla pods, caraway seeds, fennel seeds and  thyme add to what is a really complex mix. It’s very balanced too with the juniper re-emerging on the finish. A gin for gin lovers and well worth the increase in price, it's not just more botanical intensity, but a higher ABV too and both pay dividends for those looking to try something new.
