Tipple Gin features a number of locally sourced and international botanicals to create a gin that has traditional juniper along with wild berries, fresh and green rosemary and some sweetness from the use of honey. The fruit notes come from the use of damsons, a small wild fruit that has a tart, sweet and sour flavour. The honey is sourced from a local beekeeper whose bees collect nectar from the Dee valley and thanks to the bees collecting nectar from heathers, wild flowers, willow herb and clover, the honey is both delicious and unique. The distillation also uses fresh, clean water from Royal Deeside. The flavour profile strikes the perfect balance of juniper, citrus, herbaceous and red berries providing a rich, deep and complex flavour profile that delivers a wonderful flavour journey on the nose and on the palate.
Tipple Spirits Company is the brainchild of gin drinkers and couple Neil Thomson and Laura Punzano. Like many other gin brands, the couple started with the idea of creating their own Scottish Gin and began experimenting with flavour profiles at home. They wanted to create a signature gin that would take the drinker on a journey with juniper at its heart accompanied by a selection of local and traditional botanicals.
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.
Based in Aberdeen Scotland, Neil and Laura experimented with various botanicals and made several recipes recipe before seeking the advice and help of award-winning distillery Lost Loch Spirits in Aberdeenshire to upscale their signature gin profile to create their perfect tipple.
