The Botanicals are hand-crushed, macerated and then boiled gently to gradually release their delightful flavours. As the liquid evaporates and makes its way around the still it takes with it molecules of oil extracted from the botanicals, meanwhile filling the air with a glorious gin aroma.
When cooled back down to a liquid it begins to come out the other end of the still as gin.
You can enjoy a bottle of Poetic License spirit knowing it was crafted with care and commitment by hand
All of our ingredients are hand selected from exotic flavours imported from warmer climates to aromatics plucked from our own botanical garden on the North East coast.
Gracie - the still
The name given to the still. A 500 litre hybrid still which can be used as both a pot still and a column still.
Pot distilling is the traditional method and how gin has always been made, where all botanicals are macerated in the pot and then boiled.
Column stills are a newer invention; Gracie’s column has 6 plates which purify the alcohol meaning the still can make pure, smooth vodkas.
In short, Gracie has the best of both worlds.
Expect a big punch of juniper that is finely balanced with green cardamom for a warm and spicy flavour.
With undertones of lemon and eucalyptus, the inclusion of Persian lime intensifies the citrus feel while adding a note of perfume.
As for the other botanicals…well, that’s a secret for now.
Relished over large chunks of ice, with your favourite premium tonic garnished with pink grapefruit.
The gin drinker's choice, specifically crafted to stand-out in many gin-based cocktails.
The sweet and bitter flavours of a Negroni and the sharp citrusy flavours of a classic Gin Sour balance well with this powerful, floral gin.”
