Boadicea® Gin 'Classic', 50cl

7 reviews

International Wine and Spirit Competition (IWSC) medal winner, July 2019

Boadicea Gin in its classic blue bottle is available year round. Distilled in copper to create an ultra-smooth London dry gin. Deliciously enjoyable on its own over ice, or add just a splash of tonic and garnish with orange and fresh thyme to create a longer cocktail.

First we create our spirit from the finest Norfolk barley and then gently redistil in our 300 litre copper alembic still, to vapour infuse a basket of the finest botanicals, including juniper, citrus and with a nod to the Iceni - nettle.

A delicious easy to make cocktail is one part of Boadicea Gin and one part elderflower tonic, served over ice and garnished with a slice of fresh orange and fresh thyme. We call this a Boadicea Gin Thyme!

Tasting notes: Herby citrus notes come through with the sweetness from the nettles first, then a nice punch of juniper with the spice coming through at the end. Very smooth and great to sip neat, or with just a splash of elderflower tonic.
Alcohol: 40% ABV.
Allergens: Gluten free and does not contain any notifiable allergens.
Pack size: 50cl bottle.

Why a blue bottle? In Iceni times, Caesar (the Roman invader) wrote that the Britons ‘dye their bodies with woad to produce a blue colour’. We colour our bottles blue in a fitting tribute to Boadicea – the Queen of the Iceni. We also adorn our bottles with pewter triple spirals; powerful symbols of the Iceni tribe.

    Great Local Distillery

    Purchased for a friend so haven't yet sampled this personally. Fantastic service as always though, very quick to respond and can simply collect from just around the corner (great to support local even better when it's the same village!) Beautiful bottle and packaging, useful information enclosed and a lovely gesture of an extra little gift too. Will definitely make further purchases in the future.
