Our handcrafted gin is small batch distilled in a copper pot still using a base spirit made from Swedish winter barley, harvested from the fields surrounding the distillery in Northern Sweden.
Our aim was to produce a gin that encapsulates the Swedish wilderness, the inspiration of Ragnarök gin. To achieve this we use 8 botanicals, the prominent four being juniper berries, fresh lingonberries, caraway seeds and dill leaves. In the background, but no less important, we have four further botanicals that enhance these botanicals to produce an elegantly balanced gin.
The distillate is blended with fresh mountain spring water to bring it down to 88 proof (44%Alc/Vol.) A strength that we believe holds the botanicals in perfect balance. Each Bottle of Ragnarök is individually filled, sealed and numbered by hand…
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.
