Silent Pool Intrinsically Realised Gin from Surrey

Silent Pool Gin

Inspiration for this award-winning gin was drawn from the Silent Pool and the surrounding natural beauty. Their unique four-stage process allowed them to precisely control the quality and flavour of their gins. A portion of their botanicals, including Bosnian Juniper berries, liquorice root, cassia bark, orris, and bergamot are bruised and macerated in base spirit before being transferred to the still. These give depth and mouthfeel, the rich and heavier flavours. Then they have the gin basket infusion, which hangs in the neck of their Holstein still. Fresh orange and lime peel, dried pears, Macedonian Juniper and Polish Angelica, to name but a few, lift the spirit with bright aromatics and rich citrus notes. The more delicate botanicals such as rose petals, kaffir lime leaves, linden and elderflower are separately macerated in a process that they have called the ‘Gin Tea Infusion’, stripping the oils and aromatic compounds from the vegetal matter. This is strained and added to the pot, which lend the gin its ethereal high notes of perfumed lime and floral essence. The distillation process is completed using a multi-chambered fractioning column, and through precise control over a series of plates and cooling pipes, they are able to…

Silent Pool Rare Citrus Gin

The inspiration for Silent Pool Rare Citrus Gin, unsurprisingly, came from citrus. But the team didn’t want to make something as simple as a single citrus gin. They wanted to showcase the wonderful world of citrus, create a gin with layers of complex flavour like they do best. To find the right combination of citrus, they went to visit a long time supplier in Portugal. When you ask most people how many citrus they can name, it’s usually around 5. Their suppliers have a collection of over 360 citrus. Passionate citrus collectors, the duo travel the world collecting rare varieties and cultivating them on their land. They gave us the grand tour and immersed us into the world of citrus. They sampled dozens and took a handful home to begin recipe development. The rare citrus they landed on for the core of the recipe were Buddha’s Hand, Natsu Dai Dai, Hirado Buntan and Green Seville Orange. Make no mistake, this is not a ‘flavoured gin’. This is an exquisitely blended juniper-forward gin that results in a beautifully aromatic spirit with a unique taste.
