Chilgrove Dry Gin will rock your next craft cocktail in style. 
 
Chilgrove Spirits is the brainchild of Christopher Beaumont-Hutchings and his wife Celia. Celia was born in The Hague to a Dutch mother and proper British father, so was exposed to both Jenevers and Gins a’plenty. They founded their small batch distillery in Chilgrove, Sussex, England — thus the name — and released their signature Gin to the masses in 2014. A year later, they added a lovely Vodka to the line up. 
 
Chilgrove Dry Gin is a bit of a rarity in that it is not based on grain. It starts with a grape-based spirit. But back in the early days of Gin and Jenever, this was the standard. A few hundred years ago there was a protracted cold period that wrecked havoc on the grape crop. There was barely enough eaux de vie for Wine and Cognac, so local distillers turned to grain and potato. 
 
That’s a shame, because grape spirit has a naturally richer mouth feel and a light, ethereal fruitiness that makes it shine when distilled. Chilgrove knows this and combines this rich spirit with 11 botanicals, including citrus zest, local florals, angelica root, coriander seed, grains of paradise, and wild water mint, among other bits. Any way you slice it, this Gin makes the grade with a top-notch flavour profile.

And if you are the kind that likes to count awards, this Gin has garnered six from the top shows.

It’s a common myth that Gin is a tear-jerker. Of course, drinking too much of it will make you feel awful the next day, but that’s the same with any alcohol.
How much Tonic is in a Gin & Tonic? The ideal proportions for a perfect Gin & Tonic is one part Gin and two parts Tonic.
Hardcore Gin lovers say the word Martini should never be preceded by Vodka, lobster, or pomegranate. They say the original and the only real Martini consists of Gin, Vermouth & olives, period!
While juniper-heavy Gin is perfect for your daily G&T, it is also complemented extremely well by tea flavours such as Earl Grey. Try steeping Earl Grey tea bags in Gin for an hour before mixing it with lemon juice and soda for a refreshing tipple. This one gets you additional kudos, so let’s keep it between us.
As producers try to develop new styles and flavors of Gin, to push the category and find a niche, the need for trying new methods of extracting flavors, as well as using more unusual botanicals, has grown.

One such way is the vacuum distillation method, when the redistillation of botanicals takes place in a vacuum.
As with many other Spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as a medicine—to battle malaria.
