There’s a new kid on the block, and we truly can’t wait for you to sample him. Introducing Sigurd, our double distilled gin packed with rhubarb and floral notes – perfect for that summertime tipple.
We started experimenting with this gin back in January, and after around 15 small distillations we finally have the right balance of flavors to make the ideal G&T to sip in the garden.
Our managing director, Yasmin Gibson, said she’s extremely excited for gin lovers to give Sigurd a sip.
“We wanted to create something inspired by the English garden, a nice floral-style gin.
“We know there are a lot of rhubarb options out there, but we find them incredibly sweet – so we wanted to put a Dragon Slayer spin on it, similar to how we did with our Strawberry and Mint gin, which recently won an award for flavor, so we must be doing something right!”
“It has been infused with rose petals, earl grey tea, a hint of basil too – it has some beautiful floral elements, obviously only the finest of ingredients, and we usually try to go local too.”
“It’s been quite the journey. The first batch had lavender in it, but it totally overpowered the rhubarb so we swapped it for basil, which is a calmer flavor – it’s just trial and error, and a lot of drinking, which is good.
“I really hope everyone loves it. We’re going to slowly launch it at a little event to see what people think, then the following week we’ll be going in all guns blazing at the Tall Ships in Hartlepool.
The new gin is best served with lots of ice, Mediterranean tonic, and a sprinkle of rose petals, click here to watch a demonstration on how to make the perfect Sigurd Rhubarb gin and tonic.
