Dockyard Gin 50cl: A Contemporary Twist on Tradition 

Unveiling a Refreshing Spirit from Copper Rivet Distillery is proud to offer Dockyard Gin, a 50cl bottle of contemporary excellence from the esteemed Copper Rivet Distillery. This small-batch gin celebrates its Kentish heritage, taking inspiration from the historic Chatham Dockyard. Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, Dockyard Gin promises a unique and flavourful journey for gin enthusiasts.

A Meticulously Crafted Spirit

Dockyard Gin is born from a unique hand-made copper still named Janet. This traditional method allows for a more nuanced and characterful spirit to emerge. The distillery uses only the finest botanicals sourced worldwide, ensuring a complex and well-rounded flavour profile.

Tasting Notes: A Symphony of Citrus and Spice

Pour yourself a generous measure of Dockyard Gin and take a moment to appreciate its clarity. As the light dances in the glass, lift the spirit to your nose. The juniper, the backbone of any great gin, presents itself confidently, but not overbearingly. Hints of zesty citrus, particularly lemon and grapefruit, weave their way through the juniper, offering a refreshing counterpoint. Subtle whispers of spice, like coriander and cardamom, add a touch of intrigue, hinting at the complexities to come.

On the palate, Dockyard Gin delivers a delightful surprise. The juniper remains present, providing a dry and assertive base. The citrus notes from the nose come alive, offering a burst of tangy sweetness that quickly gives way to the warmth of the spices. The botanicals are beautifully balanced, creating a harmonious and lingering flavour profile. The finish is clean and crisp, with a touch of juniper lingering on the tongue.

The Perfect Serve: Unlocking Dockyard Gin's Potential

Dockyard Gin's versatility makes it a perfect choice for a variety of serves. To experience the gin in its purest form, enjoy it neat or on the rocks. The coolness of the ice will further enhance the citrus notes, while a neat pour allows the full complexity of the gin to shine.

For a truly refreshing drink, create a classic Gin & Tonic.  Fill a highball glass with ice, add a generous measure of Dockyard Gin, and top with your favourite tonic water. Garnish with a slice of pink grapefruit to emphasise the zesty citrus notes within the gin. Experiment with different tonic waters to discover the perfect pairing for your taste.

Dockyard Gin also lends itself beautifully to cocktails. Here's a suggestion to get you started:

  • The Chatham Dockyard:
    • 50ml Dockyard Gin
    • 25ml Elderflower Liqueur
    • 25ml Fresh Lemon Juice
    • Soda Water
    • Lemon Twist (for garnish)

Combine Dockyard Gin, elderflower liqueur, and lemon juice in a shaker filled with ice. Shake well and strain into a coupe glass. Top with soda water and garnish with a lemon twist. This delightful cocktail offers a delightful balance of sweet and tart, complemented by the refreshing juniper notes of Dockyard Gin.
