The key botanical of watermelon came to the creators after a hunt for an ingredient that wasn’t too fruity but had the right level of crispness and sweetness that would mix well with any tonic. To taste, well rounded and balanced, with citrus immediately present. The spice builds but doesn’t overpower. To finish, clean and refreshing.
Zest of orange and lemon straight out the gates, building to soft floral notes and cassia warmth to balance it all out
Watermelon back-note rounds off the finish eliminating any alcohol burn making it ideal for drinking neat. Lasting warmth lingers until your next sip.
Watermelon, Elderflower, Citrus
Goes great with:

London Dry Gin
London Dry Gin is both a flavour profile and a production method. London Dry Gins tend to follow the traditional, classic flavour of piney juniper, citrus and spice. Alongside juniper, botanicals in London Dry Gin often include orris root, angelica root, cassia bark, citrus peel and coriander, among the core botanicals. The result is a dry gin that features piney juniper along with bursts of citrus and warming spice and earthy, dry notes from use of botanicals such as cassia bark and coriander. Nothing synthetic can be added like flavourings or colours and nothing can be added post distillation apart from water and a tiny amount of sugar meaning all flavours come from distillation.
The duo behind Crag & Tail Gin partnered with established contract distillers Distillutions in Arbroath, Angus. It made sense to work with a local business, who had the experience they were looking for to create a classic London Dry style flavour profile. Distillutions are responsible for developing and producing a number of award-winning Scottish Gins.
