A joint collaboration between three spirit experts, Matthew Drakes, Jack Rackham and Adrian Gomes. Its a classic London style gin using 10 botanicals including darjeeling tea. As well as subtle flavours from Darjeeling tea the gin contains flavours of juniper, lemon, grapefruit, coriander, ginger, fennel, cardamom, cinnamon and angelica. The team enlisted a tea sommelier, Ajit Madan, co-founder of Camellia's Tea House in London and UK's first certified International Tea Education Institute (ITEI) Master Tea Sommelier. Ajit introduced the makers to a first flush Darjeeling tea from the Goomtee Estate, a single estate tea plantation in the Kurseong Valley, India. Darjeeling tea, known as the 'Champagne of Teas' and the picturesque artisan tea gardens of Darjeeling, at the foot of the Himalayas, produce less than 1% of India's total tea production. This is mostly from single estates and often organic and hand-plucked.
