Leigh on Sea Brewery are proud to partner with Essex Spirits Co. - a new local distillery. We're adding this local artisan product to broaden our beer offering and look forward to bringing it to your door!
So, what’s in the bottle?
- Essex Spirit Co start by creating a traditional gin with a more winter flavour profile featuring, Juniper, Angelica, Coriander, Orange Zest, Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Orris & Liquorice.
- Next they create a ‘spiced honey water’ - then dry roast fresh cinnamon sticks & cloves, before pouring water over them to extract the oils, then stir in beautiful local honey from Sunnyfields Honey & Home.
- Essex Spirit Co blend the spiced honey water & gin together to bring the ABV to 40% and then soak the gin in freshly cut up Gala apples from the famous Lathcoats farm, which is located less than 2miles away from the distillery in Chelmsford!
The liquid is filtered and bottled resulting in a beautiful mix of sweet honey notes & subtle crisp apple with the kick of real gin botanicals. Add a touch of any mixer to open up the flavours!
These bottles are labelled with the year of production and an individual bottle number.
**Please be aware** - Seasonal Apple & Spiced Honey is a completely natural product with absolutely no refined sugars or flavourings added. As such there may be some settling of sediment in the bottle. This is nothing to worry about, simply shake the bottle to re-mix contents. Colour may also change over extended periods of time.
