This Gin has been making big waves since it launched in June 2022 which is no mean feat in a somehwat saturated Gin market these days.

Add in a highly distinctive bottle and they are definitely onto a winner with this gin.
On tasting this ourselves we couldn't help but be impressed by the entire package and even at it's the alcohol strength, it's surprisingly easy to drink and enjoyable neat. Perfect for cocktails, or for a straight up Gin and Tonic, this is a premium Gin in everysense and will have you coming back for a more in no time!
Basalt Distillery Ltd Tasting Note ...
Nose - Very fresh citrus at the beginning, then followed by juniper and something almost salty.
Taste - The citrus from the nose comes over first, then there's juniper and more sharp and warm spices, like ginger and cassia. These flavours give way to more unusual flavours that are hard to pin down, something fresh and salty. It is harmonized by a mellow mouth feel from the buckwheat.
Finish - The peppery spices carry over into a long-lasting finish that lingers in all three dimensions.
