Mews Gin is a craft gin produced in the heart of the Surrey countryside. Artisan gin distiller and family business Mews Gin Company produce a high quality, hand crafted gin in limited quantities.
What sets Mews Gin apart from many others is that they vapour infuse the botanicals during distillation rather than steep and macerate them in the alcohol, which creates a gin with a lighter, subtle and more delicate style.
It is a family run business and has a down to earth quality that can be tasted and seen on the understated label. Father and son, Richard and Dan, are lovers of gin and were inspired by seeing the revival of the craft gin market.
Their gin is made from a carefully chosen blend of 11 different botanicals, and in addition to the key ingredients of juniper, angelica and coriander seed also includes lavender and pink pepper corns amongst others. The lavender (as a reference to their countryside location) gives a delicate nose whilst the pink peppercorns add the sweetness of the berries. Liquorice root, lemon and orange peel alongside cubeb berries and cassia all add to the mix and help give the gin its depth of flavours.
Mews Gin is made in small batches creating approx. 100 bottles over a 6 hour distillation. Delicious.
