Durham Gin

"Rex Habit Extra, Quicquid Episcopus Habit Intra" as it says on the Durham distillery website. Brings back such memories of Durham. Oh, Durham...

(Jake studied Ancient History at Durham and although he's staring wistfully into space right now, he should return to this Bottling Note in just a moment - hopefully without providing us with any of his anecdotes.)

Distilled in the eponymous city in the northeast of England, Durham Gin is made with ten botanicals including juniper, celery seed, elderflower and pink peppercorn as well as a secret mix of other herbs and spices. Some of these are macerated prior to distillation, some are added into the still and others go in the gin basket above depending on where the flavours are best extracted. Produced in small batches of just a few hundred bottles, Durham Gin provides balanced notes of citrus, spice, fresh florals and earthy roots.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Soft juniper with a spicy edge, paired wonderfully with savoury cooking herbs and light, fruity sweetness.

Reviews for Durham Gin
Beautiful smooth gin.
Needs no mixer, best with a little ice only.

Amazing savoury gin with a slight citrus burst! Perfect with a simple tonic and squeeze of citrus

Not nice
If you like celery you'll like this but we couldn't drink it as found the flavour really overbearing. The worst gin we've tasted and we've had a few.

A flavour to savour.
A different gin from most, with the celery seeds making it quite a savoury affair. One of the only gins I can enjoy neat. Citrus enough not to need a lemon or lime though. Can't wait for their whisky in a few years time.

I look at the celery seed as part of my 5 a day!
Absolute nectar.
Bought a bottle and was hooked. When Majestic stopped selling it, I bought 15 bottles to make sure I'd never run out. Now, with three bottles remaining (12 bottles over a year - that's not too bad, is it?), I'm purchasing another dozen from Master of Malt to see me to this time next year... hic....

Love it!
I love this gin but appreciate that it might not be to everyone’s tastes, the celery seed is certainly predominant but if you like a savoury edge to your gin I cannot recommend it highly enough.

Absolutely delicious
A very refreshing Gin with a unique flavour. Since trying it I have always had one in my collection and bought it for others who love it too
