Daffys Small Batch Premium Gin: A Journey for the Senses

Unveiling a Scottish Gem

Daffys Small Batch Premium Gin is a handcrafted spirit boasting a unique character, perfect for gin connoisseurs and adventurous drinkers alike. Distilled in the heart of the Scottish Highlands, Daffys uses traditional copper pot methods to create a gin that is both smooth and complex.

Aromatic Exploration

The first impression of Daffys gin is a burst of freshness. Juniper, the quintessential gin botanical, forms the base, but it's not overpowering. Instead, it mingles beautifully with zesty citrus notes of orange and lemon peel. As you delve deeper, a hint of floral sweetness emerges, like fragrant meadows bathed in sunshine. Surprisingly, a subtle woody note weaves through the aroma, reminiscent of a gentle breeze carrying the scent of pine from a nearby forest. This unexpected element adds a touch of intrigue and complexity to the overall profile.

A Dance on the Palate

The initial sip of Daffys gin is a revelation. The spirit is surprisingly smooth, with a gentle warmth spreading across the tongue. The juniper takes centre stage, but it's balanced beautifully by the vibrant citrus notes that were present on the nose. A wave of spice washes over the palate next, with hints of coriander and a touch of peppery heat. This spiciness is not overwhelming, but rather adds a layer of interest and keeps the drinker engaged.

Lebanese Mint: The Star of the Show

As the flavours develop, a truly unique element comes to the fore: Lebanese mint. This unexpected botanical adds a refreshing lift to the gin, without overpowering the other botanicals. The mint presents itself as a cool, minty sensation that lingers pleasantly on the back of the throat. It's a delightful surprise that elevates Daffys gin from a good gin to a truly exceptional one. The mint complements the juniper and citrus beautifully, creating a harmonious balance that is both invigorating and inviting.

A Long and Lingering Finish

The finish of Daffys gin is long and satisfying. The juniper and citrus notes gradually fade, leaving a whisper of spice and a lingering coolness from the Lebanese mint. It's a clean and refreshing finish that leaves you wanting more.

Serving Suggestions

Daffys Small Batch Premium Gin's versatility makes it a perfect base for a variety of cocktails. Here are a few suggestions to get you started:
