Crafted according to the original Bristol method, fresh botanicals are individually distilled in traditional copper pot stills according to when they are in season. This single-minded approach to bespoke distillation captures the pure essence of each botanical, from Tuscan juniper to hand-cut Valencia orange. Rested for three months before release, Smeaton’s is a dry gin of exceptional complexity, balance and length.
Intense nose, fresh orange and menthol at first then juniper and liquorice. Beautifully integrated alcohol with a long, complex, earthy finish where marked juniper notes are supported by citrus and cinnamon. Louches slightly when diluted with tonic.
