Named ‘Arabella’ after a famous Salcombe Fruit Schooner built in 1860, this limited-edition gin has been developed in collaboration with world renowned chef Michael Caines MBE, one of Britain’s most celebrated and accomplished chefs to create a truly exceptional gin.
This beautifully complex yet delicate gin celebrates classic flavours of juniper, combined with bright citrus aromas from sweet orange peel, lemon and English coriander seed. On the palate it is rich yet balanced with a floral edge followed by a savoury note from bitter almonds. Further freshness from lemon thyme and verbena gives ‘Arabella’ a lingering dry finish.
Limited to 1,200 bottles. 50cl, 46% ABV.
