Made in the London Dry way, Blue Slate Gin has a herbal flavour profile that sets it apart from a lot of other gins around. On the palate, Blue Slate Gin is rich with spicy pine leading to an elderflower heart and a long oak and heather-honey finish.
Jess and Lew spent many hours exploring the flavour profile of juniper and then painstakingly distilling other native botanicals. Eventually, they found the combination that reflected the essential components of a great London Dry gin, while also also capturing some of the essence of the local Dinorwig flora.
There’s no lemon or lime in here, but instead, you’ll get that refreshing citrus profile through a combination of local coriander seed and rhubarb. Yes, rhubarb – softened in local heather honey. It’s a left-field combination, but it really works to give Dinorwig’s gin a distinctive taste.
