Carabus Limited Edition Papillon Gin 70cl
This Limited Edition Gin from Papillon has been created in collaboration with Nick Baker, Dartmoor wildlife presenter (notably on Children's BBC's The Really Wild Show, in celebration of the rare Blue Ground Beetle.
This is a lovely smooth gin! Rowan and hawthorn berries have been used instead of citrus, that give a fresh, fruity tartness to start. Cubeb, cardamom and cassia give subtle spice notes. The hazelnuts lend a creaminess that ends in a pearly finish.
Thought to be extinct until being re-discovered on Dartmoor in 1985, this species is very rare! £2 from every bottle will be donated by the distillery to Buglife to help protect this wonderful beetle!
