At the Copper House Distillery, we use the ‘London Dry’ method to produce gins of exceptional flavour and quality. First, we make a vodka-quality spirit using locally sourced grain and our copper pot still and copper rectifying column. We then redistill the vodka in our gin still with a range of selected botanicals. To make First Rate, we use our Longshore Vodka, made from a distillery wash of 60% malted barley, 35% wheat and 5% oats. This base spirit is exceptionally smooth thanks to its unique mash bill, and we take the finest cut for this premium and complex gin. Once the vodka has been produced, we put it back into our gin still with a special combination of 13 botanicals. The botanicals are left to steep in the Vodka overnight and are then redistilled ensuring a gin of superior quality, character and smoothness.

A very complex and tasty gin

This really is a winner. The complex botanicals make it incredibly tasty and the higher strength allows these flavours to shine. There is only one downside to this gin - the glass stopper is a real pain and not easy to remove. Please go back to the wooden stopper you used to have.
