Victoria’s Rhubarb Gin

Produced by: Warner Edwards Distillery Ltd

Warner Edwards have the great pleasure of introducing Victoria’s Rhubarb Gin – our latest addition to the Warner Edwards family. Not just any old rhubarb this has a lineage steeped in provenance.

The Queen Victoria rhubarb has gone from Queen Victoria’s Buckingham Palace garden in the 1800’s, to being grown on Crown Estate property in the 2000’s. The farm where it is now grown is a Crown Estate previously owned by the current grower, who farms it to this day.

This rhubarb has always been grown in the traditional Victorian kitchen garden style, having lots of organic matter to nourish it. It has not been grown commercially with artificial fertiliser and chemical sprays, so over the years the flavour can be greatly improved.

They use ‘Curiosity’ to soften the plant and then extract the juice through traditional pressing methods. The fabulous liquid is combined with their global award winning Harrington Dry Gin and just enough sugar to balance the acidity. The result is a rumbustious gin with a big burst of rhubarb which is a glory on its own and beautiful with either tonic or ginger ale.

ABV:40%
Nose:Rhubarb notes bursting through: tart, fruity, fresh, invigorating, and inviting.
Palate:Bright rhubarb stalks upfront, with a brief flash of sourness. This is followed by an array of sweet spice: vanilla, nutmeg, and ginger, which add balance. Classic gin notes then come through, with resinous juniper and the spicy citrus of coriander.
Finish:Long and lingering, with the indulgent, buttery, spiced notes of rhubarb crumble and clotted cream.
Serve/garnish:Works nicely with tonic and a slice of orange/blood orange. Also very nice with ginger ale or ginger cocktails. Garnish with orange.
