Our Technique

ONLY HEPPLE USES THREE TECHNIQUES TO CAPTURE THE FULL RANGE OF FLAVOUR FROM OUR BOTANICALS BRINGING THEM AS ALIVE IN THE BOTTLE AS THEY WERE ON THE HILLS. 

 

Hepple Gin TASTING NOTES

ON THE NOSE

There is an immediate fresh scent of green apple, bright grapefruit and spicy juniper. This then opens up to reveal underlying notes of Douglas Fir, and fragrant blackcurrant.

ON SIPPING

The initial fresh citrus flavours evolve into unexpected ripe cantaloupe melon, the spicy fragrant juniper continues to coat the palate. There is a luscious sweet mouthfeel, which is both juicy and quenching.

THE FINISH

Extremely long and this is where the juniper reveals itself further with flavours alternating between sandalwood and cedar with a notable savoury presence that complements the sweet blackcurrant and liquorice. The sweet juiciness is maintained throughout the finish.

According to the label it’s a ‘gin in high fidelity’ and we’re inclined to agree.
