Home of the original Sussex producers of vodka, gin, vermouth & spirits, Lurgashall Winery is nestled within the foothills of Blackdown Hills, surrounded by the beautiful South Downs National Park. Blackdown Artisan Spirits are produced by hand in small batches using only carefully selected ingredients sourced from local and English producers, combining aged old traditions with a unique, modern taste of the English countryside. Blackdown gin is a blend of 11 botanicals including juniper, cinnamon, cassia bark, angelica root, liquorice and Sussex silver birch sap.
A clear, bright liquid. Delicate with a traditional woody aroma, the predominant notes are juniper, citrus, coriander and sweet Silver Birch sap. Full of flavour and slightly sweet, with a smooth and refined mouth feel.
