Colour me beautiful – Gin-Note™ application

Alice Pearson

A wider application of the Gin-Note™ flavour profiling methodology (in distillery visitor tasting experiences) to describe gin flavours.

Alice Pearson joined the Cotswolds Distillery in June 2018 after completing her A levels in nearby Stratford Upon Avon. Initially, she took on a full-time position on the bottling line with the intention to move onto higher education in September.

After catching the gin and whisky bug, she knew that she would end up staying at the distillery for much longer than just a few months. After spending some time working with the Shop and Tours team, Alice eventually joined the R&D lab in October 2019.

“During my short time in the industry I have fallen in love with almost every aspect of distillery life and have recently completed my General Certificate in Distilling. I leapt at the opportunity to attend Ginposium as, looking forward, I am excited to spend more time in the industry and soak up as much knowledge as possible from those who have been here much longer than me.

Nestled in the heart of the beautiful Cotswolds countryside, producing Outstanding Natural Spirits since 2014 is Cotswolds distillery – the first full-scale distillery in the Cotswolds. It crafts a range of single malt whiskies, gins and liqueurs, including the award-winning Cotswolds Dry Gin and Cotswolds Single Malt Whisky.
