A smooth and vibrant gin that leads with juniper, delivers hints of the forest, tropical fruit, citrus spice, tangy sherbet and a subtle scent of the shore.
Bringing together 11 botanicals including traditional, locally foraged and world ingredients, make this gin really special. To ensure vibrancy, all of the five basic tastes are hit with elements of sweet (Mango), sour (Orange), bitter (Noble Fir from our forests) salt & umami (Bladderwrack seaweed from our shore). We also create sensation by hitting the nerves with subtle numbing Green Sichuan Pepper & tangy Bay leaf. The traditions of gin are respected with classic ingredients at the base making our gin complex but balanced and extremely moreish.
It took over 14 months and more than 90 different recipes to get close to our special blend of botanicals. As the final twist, we also wanted to involve the most important element of all - the public! 400 members of the general public received 3x variations on which they fed back to help craft a gin for the people. The end result is a gin that is entirely appealing to you all. Balanced and versatile so you can serve any way you like.
What's Crafty all about?
Here at the Crafty Distillery we have a plan. Using new technology, our own grain spirit and locally sourced ingredients we want to create tasty, wallet- pleasing spirits for everyone who likes a tipple. We're a small committed team and we believe if a job’s worth doing, it’s worth doing properly.
Add 50ml of Hills & Harbour Gin, 25ml of Elderflower Cordial and a dash of Grapefruit Oleo (made with molasses sugar) to an ice-filled shaker. Add a sprig of Noble Fir and shake. Strain into a glass over ice and top with soda. Garnish with a sprig of Noble Fir and a slice of grapefruit.
A Bottle Like No Other
At Crafty we believe that a bottle design can not only look good, but also work much harder to add extra functionality. The end result is a more enjoyable experience with less impact on the environment.
MADE TO MEASURE
Our crafty measure is cleverly built into the 100% natural wood and cork stopper. It’s designed to let you pour the perfect measure every time – just fill twice for a standard 25ml serve. But it’s been created with something else in mind. To be enjoyed long after the gin’s finished – either to serve up another spirit, or to inspire some creative cocktail making.
AN EVOLUTIONARY DESIGN
Our new bottle shape is a bold and elegant evolution, with the same evocative colours of our region. What’s more, our name and lightning bolt icon now take centre stage.The illustration tells the story of our region’s landscape and natural larder. This creates added texture, which makes the bottle easier to hold and pour. You could say it’s a nice touch.
A BOTTLE DESIGNED TO KEEP ON GIVING
Our new bottle is 30% lighter by design. This helps to reduce the energy used in production, shipping and recycling.And, the short neck and unique wide opening are more than just visually striking. The bigger opening means there are lots of ways the bottle can be up-cycled once the gin is finished. Cheers to that.
