William Chase has been impressing with its excellent range of spirits ever since its foundation in 2008. The distillery is family owned, using produce grown on their own farm in Herefordshire. This marvelous gin was deliberately designed for G&Ts, with an incredibly dry, juniper-led profile. The gin is made from scratch by William Chase, who use organic apples on their farm to create a cider that then distil to make their vodka. The gin is then redistilled from this vodka in a copper carter head still with juniper and fresh berries, producing an extremely dry gin. To this infusion, wild botanicals are added, including: cinnamon, almond, cloves, coriander, liquorice, lemon peel, nutmeg, ginger and cardamom. These give a spicy and earthy quality to the gin. A true master-class of gin-making from the bare basics right to the complexities of botanical flavour. William Chase Great British Gin makes one of the best gin and tonics you will ever have. It was awarded a “double gold” medal and best in class at the 2016 San Francisco Spirits Competition.
