14 specially chosen botanicals
Being surrounded by some of very best alcohol brands in the world on a daily basis, we wanted to create a new gin brand that stood out from the ever-increasing crowd. Dunell’s currently stock over 100 different gins so it was essential that ours not only looks the part but tastes amazing too. We wanted an exciting flavour profile that appeals to both men and women but to be classic in style and not a fruit gin. We wanted our customers to be able to enjoy this gin neat, on the rocks, with tonic, as a Martini and as an exciting gin cocktail.
Right from the start we knew we wanted to focus on a combination of locally grown fresh raspberries together with pink grapefruit, pink peppercorns and hibiscus, a combination Luke had never worked with before. Single shot distilled in a beautiful Müller copper still, Luke Wheadon has used 14 different botanicals to create our Pink Granite blend. By taking the 2 fresh ingredients of raspberry and pink grapefruit and then combining with the 12 other dried botanicals, the aim was to create a classic gin focusing primarily on achieving a mid-palate that would turn heads, give that special ‘wow’ moment and make non-drinkers fall in love with gin. We know we have successfully achieved this.
