Downton Explorer's Gin

Downton Distillery can be found on the Wiltshire Downs overlooking Downton and the River Avon. For Explorer's Gin, botanicals are both macerated and vapour infused. Among pink pepper, bay leaf and Sichuan pepper, the star botanical here is Western Red Cedar, initially brought over from America in 1852 and now grown in the distillery garden. Which brings us to the inspiration behind the gin, the Golden Age of Exploration, when from the 15th century through to the 17th century European ships travelled around the world just generally exploring things. It seems only fitting then that there aren't any recommended serves with this one, only to explore and find what you enjoy!

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Fresh and full of flavour, with herbal notes leading into piney citrus, chilli spice and candied citrus, with peppery fruitiness lingering.

Reviews for Downton Distillery Explorer's Gin
Love it
If the flavour had not sold it to me, it was their sustainability and refills that did! Love it.

Authentic local distillery
We have heard it all before, the USP to brands and why we should buy their product. We met the distiller of this brand at a local county show, the passion, care, attention to detail, let alone the spirits he had us try, brilliant. If you haven't - try.

Happy with my new find
Massive fan of this brand having met the charming distiller called Hugh at the local Gillingham and Shaftesbury show. Threading botanicals, design and a wonderful history into an exquisite bottle. The gin is very different, smooth with no harshness, I never knew I could do a sipping gin, until now.

Best gin for cocktails
Fantastic gin - full of flavour and very different to other gins. My new favourite, especially in a martini and a negroni

Great find and impressive
I came across this small distillery as I was looking for something new and unusual. I tried their cocktail course before buying the larger bottle, as I wanted to understand how I could drink it and more about them. Wasn’t disappointed, a team that is passionate and care in what they do.

Wiltshire Gin based in Downton. Given to me as a present. I had to look this up as it was bold in flavour and design.
