Lightning Gin - World's Best Contemporary Gin in the IWSC.
Navy Strength Gin
700ml 57.5% ABV

"Layered and compelling, juniper and spice run alongside other botanicals. Great mouthfeel with citrus at the fore and good botanical boldness. With added water, the floral parts open up a lot with waves of spice.” - 98 points International Wines & Spirits Competition 2021


Are you ready to be struck by Lightning Gin?

Our unconventionally smooth navy strength gin boasts double Juniper and a slightly drier profile compared to its sibling, Affinity. Featuring triple citrus tiers of herbaceous Lemon Myrtle, bitter Ruby Grapefruit, and sweet Mandarin, however, Rose Geranium is the standout botanical here. Picked fresh from our own distillery garden, our Rose Geranium provides a lingering composition of beautiful herbaceous and floral notes. Finally, a mild buzz fills your lips whilst notes of garden rain remain from the freshly collected mountain rainwater.

Enjoy in a tall Gin & Tonic or, to get the full effect, pour a nip into your glass, add a drop of water or cube of ice and let this gin open right up.

Paired Tonics: Capi – Native Tonic, Strange Love – Light Tonic, Strange Love – Very Mandarin Soda, Fever Tree - Indian Tonic,  Fever-Tree – Elderflower Tonic, Poaches – Indian, Barker & Quinn – Honeybush and Orange Tonic.

Garnishes: Ruby Grapefruit, Burnt Orange, Pineapple and Chili.
