Monterey Gin

From Helford River Distillery

Juniper and Coriander up front, Cardamom and Keffir Lime base notes with bright Sea Buckthorn and Citrus finish, tempered by the dryness of Maté with Gentian Root to give a smooth, pleasing mouthfeel.

Organic base spirit of premium quality in a ‘One Shot’ distillation method. Only a few hundred bottles per run, production is more time-consuming and requires more craft but unlike the more commonly used ‘Concentrate’ distillation method, it means that Monterey is not changed from maceration to bottle apart from the dilution with de-mineralised water.

No chilled filtration is used in the preparation of Monterey as they want all of the distinctive oils and flavours of the eleven botanicals to sing louder and prouder in the final mouthfeel of their gin.
