Gin - 1869 - Wicked Wolf
1869 Lorna Doone Gin (42%) has been produced to celebrate 150 years since the launch of the book Lorna Doone.
The Wicked Wolf distillery is in the Valley in which the book is set.
1869 has a slightly more local feel to the botanicals with the use of meadowsweet, whortleberries (bilberries) and heather. It also contains vanilla which is obviously not so local! This gin is gentle but still has bags of flavour and a soft finish from the vanilla.
We love 1869 it with a quality Indian tonic water and a fine slice of lemon. It also blends beautifully with Mediterranean Tonic water.
