This local distillery has been making spirits by hand for three generations since that’s the only way they’ve ever known how. The classic Alembic Copper Pot Still that Dr. Eamers utilises makes it possible to preserve every plant’s essence. They only use the best and most recent botanicals, and because every batch of their spirit is made by hand, it is exceptionally clear and complex.
The process begins with careful selection of the greatest ingredients. The finest botanicals are macerated in spirit for 24 hours with juicy juniper berries and fragrant coriander seeds. Afterward, the mixture of fresh botanicals is added, which may include fresh citrus fruits, fresh berries, lemon thyme, lavender, tellicherry pepper, grains of paradise, cubeb berries, angelica, orris, liquorice root, cinnamon, and bramley apples, among others, depending on the recipe.
Dr Eamers’ Spiced Gin is a beautifully scented gin. Warming fruits and spices, such as cinnamon, clementine, nutmeg, apricot, clove, sultana, ginger, mace, and cranberry, were used in the distillation process. This autumn/winter treat tastes great with a piece of fresh orange and either ginger ale or Indian tonic.
