Hooting Owl - West Yorkshire Gin: 50cl, 20cl and 5cl bottles.
Available in 50cl, 20cl and 5cl bottles.
Inspired by the home town of the distiller (Bradford), this is a spicy gin containing the traditional curry spices of cardamom, turmeric and cumin, these are sweetened by the liquorice (Pontefract Cakes) and cassia bark.
The carefully weighed botanical mix and the lovingly accurate way in which they distil gins makes for a very smooth flavour packed "spiced" gin.
As in all true gins, the taste explosion starts with Juniper, followed by, the earthiness of the turmeric complimented by the sweetness of the liquorice & cassia bark and the spiced flavours of the cardamom, cumin, cubeb and grains of paradise.
Serve over ice, with one part Gin and three parts of the tonic of your choosing. Hooting Owl use a plain tonic as they believe that the flavour should come from the gin not the tonic. Add some pink peppercorns, a cardamom pod and half of a star anise to produce a really complex yet clean flavour explosion.
