Unveiling the Legend: A Deep Dive into Winchester Distillery Round Table Gin

Journey to the heart of English history with Winchester Distillery's Round Table Gin, a small-batch spirit inspired by the legendary King Arthur and his Knights. Crafted with meticulous care and a blend of carefully selected botanicals, this gin promises a flavourful adventure for the senses.

A Liquid Tapestry: Exploring Round Table Gin's Aroma and Flavour

Aroma:  The moment you uncork a bottle of Round Table Gin, a wave of invigorating aromas greets you. The juniper berries, the cornerstone of any good gin, form the base, offering a clean, piney character.  But Round Table Gin goes beyond the expected. Citrus notes of lemon and grapefruit dance alongside the juniper, adding a burst of freshness.  A touch of peppery spice emerges, hinting at the gin's complexity.  As the aroma unfolds, whispers of floral notes like lavender and rose peek through, creating a truly captivating bouquet.

Taste:  The first sip of Round Table Gin is a revelation.  The juniper takes centre stage, delivering a dry, crisp character that is both warming and inviting.  Citrus zest explodes on the palate, offering a burst of tangy refreshment that perfectly complements the juniper.  The peppery spice from the aroma translates into a gentle warmth that lingers on the tongue.  But then, the magic happens.  Subtle floral notes, hinted at in the aroma, emerge mid-palate, adding a touch of elegance and unexpected complexity.  The finish is long and satisfying, with the juniper and citrus flavours leaving a lasting impression.

A Blend Worthy of the Round Table: Unveiling the Botanical Secrets

Winchester Distillery's Round Table Gin is a masterpiece of botanical balance. Here's what makes it stand out:

  • Classic with a Twist: The core of Round Table Gin features the classic gin botanicals – juniper, coriander, angelica root, and orris root. These provide the foundation for the gin's character.
  • Local Heroines: But Round Table Gin takes things a step further by incorporating locally sourced botanicals like Hampshire honey and elderflower. These add a touch of floral sweetness and a unique regional character.
  • Citrus Symphony: A blend of citrus peels, including lemon, grapefruit, and orange, adds a burst of vibrancy and freshness, perfectly balancing the juniper and other botanicals.
  • Small-Batch Dedication: Crafted in small batches using traditional copper pot stills, Round Table Gin benefits from the meticulous attention to detail that only small-scale production allows.
