Clear
The gin is described as having light orange and cassia spice on the nose, which develops in the mouth to a more rounded classic juniper and coriander with yuzu peel flavours bursting through as it mellows out into a sweet orange aftertaste lingering briefly before the palate is left refreshed. The distillery uses a single-shot process and almond powder to really mellow out the ethanol and bind it with rich botanicals to provide not only a smooth gin but a very light mouthfeel. Purist Gin has been released in a series of Artists Edition Bottles, currently at No.4 by Molly Sellers as a Glasgow Special Edition.

About

Purist Gin is a small but growing gin brand with pure creativity at its heart. The team collaborated with the Purist Art project on the label, which involves working with independent artists, and the team will continue to work with the project on future batches. This combination of quality, art and nuance is something the team really pride themselves on. The gin development was carried out by 21-year-old distiller Bruce Walker, who launched the brand during the Corona Virus lockdown in a 6 week period as a way of keeping his other business afloat. The success of the initial small batch gave the small team a renewed sense of enthusiasm coming out of lockdown, which means it’s now become Bruce’s primary business and everyone at Purist is very excited to see where they can take the brand and products.

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.

Production

The gin distillation takes place at Distillutions, an award-winning Scottish Gin Distillery in Angus. They use a single-shot process and together with some traditional botanicals, the Purist Gin team chose to use some rather unique, less traditional botanicals, like Yuzu, which results in a real flavour journey on the palate. In 2021, the small team moved into a permanent Glasgow based address as they focus on growing the business, while production remains at Distillutions.
