This gin is based on the multi award winning Esker Gin but with the addition of honey and additional spices for a warming twist, not unlike a spiced Old Tom style of gin. What was originally a limited edition gin known as Esker Honey Spiced is now part of the core range due to its popularity. Can be served with tonic or ginger ale.
Esker Spirits was founded in October 2015 by husband and wife Steve and Lynne Duthie. A keen interest in gin evolved into nearly two years of experimentation with a 1 litre copper still in their kitchen. An empty workshop at the bottom of the garden became the first Esker Spirits Distillery with one goal – to produce premium spirits with a real taste experience for the consumer. In late summer 2016, Esker’s popularity meant that an expansion was in order and the search began for new premises. In early 2017, the brand moved to the Kincardine Estate, the home of its silver birch sap. All Esker Gin is now produced and bottled in the family owned distillery located on the Kincardine Highland Estate, Royal Deeside, Scotland.
Distilled Gins are similar to London Dry Gins, except natural or artificial flavourings can be added after the distillation process. The flavours can vary greatly and some gins can often cross over to other gin styles, for example where sugars have been added to created an Old Tom style gin or maceration with fruit to create a Flavoured Gin. Some Distilled Gins also follow the London Dry style to the letter but go on to include additional botanical/s to their gin post-distillation and therefore can’t be classed as a London Dry Gin. Distilled Gin is sometimes referred to as Contemporary, New American, New Western or International style gin.
Esker Spirits Distillery is located on the Kincardine Highland Estate in Royal Deeside. The distillery sits atop of an Esker, a ridge created by a glacier and hence where the business and products get their name. With stunning views over Royal Deeside that capture the Cairngorms National Park and the River Dee, the distillery is a true rural distillery that produces spirits directly influenced by the terroir. The distillery is kitted out with two traditional copper pot stills.
