GIANTS BASALT ROCK GIN 50CL
Bushmills | ABV 50.1%
Inspired by the dramatic local natural landscape, the Basalt Distillery is the home to Giants Basalt Rock Gin. Located just a stone throw from the Giant’s Causeway in Northern Ireland, this brand-new distillery represents a departure from traditional craft distilling, emphasising the latest sustainable processes, cutting-edge distilling technology, and an unrivalled focus on precision.
he founders wanted to develop a unique gin with powerful flavours – a bold, strong gin full of heat and spice to truly represent a ‘Giants’ spirit. Giants Basalt Rock Gin was created and given a name inspired by the basalt rock that filters the water from their own 600ft well. Key botanicals selected from the coastal regions of Northern Ireland include Kombu Royale, which gives a salty forward flavour followed by hints of mint, and sea buckthorn with a sour forward flavour and a slight fruity sweetness supporting flavour. The third key botanical is from further afield – Tailed peppers, or piper cubeba – which brings peppery spices and a slight bitterness. The addition of buckwheat harmonises the complex flavour profile of Giants Basalt Rock Gin whilst thickening the spirit to give a pleasant mellow mouthfeel. All these botanicals contribute to the complex, bold, three-dimensional flavour profile that our high 50.1% ABV carries and brings on heat and a kick.
