GoodWill Premium Scottish Craft Gin – 70cl
- 40% abv
- Dingwall, Highland, Scotland
GoodWill Gin is a Highland premium craft gin made from nine premium botanicals, including exotic fruits and locally picked Hawthorn berries. The carefully measured juniper content makes for a smooth taste experience whilst remaining full-bodied.
There is a distinct refreshing citrus burst that stays from the first nosing right through the taste to the long and complex finish. Finally, the finish delivers a delicately spiced sensation to warm the palate. Savour it, live in the now, and share the moments that matter.
On the Rocks – Cooling over ice encourages the refreshing nature of GoodWill’s zesty fruit character.
With Tonic – Serve with any fine Tonic and simply let GoodWill Gin do its own thing.
- 25ml of GoodWill Gin
- 25ml of Tonic
- Several cubes of ice
- Garnish with: Toasted Orange Peel to encourage the citrus botanicals and also Bruised Coriander to bring out the spice side.
Nine premium botanicals including locally sourced Hawthorn are soaked in 55% ABV grain neutral spirit for 24 hours. The steeping takes place within our 400 litre gin still, which goes by the name of Heather, and this allows for GoodWill’s delicate flavours to develop.
After 24 hours of steeping, the still is heated using steam. Alcohol boils at a lower temperature than water, so this allows the alcohol vapour to rise up through the 3.4 metre-high still column, across the lye pipe, and into the condenser, before running into the spirit safe.
Some 30 litres of the foreshots, or ‘the head’, are collected before the spirit cut begins. Then, some 250 litres of the gin spirit, ‘the heart’, are collected at approximately 75% ABV. Together with the foreshots, the remaining feints, or the ‘tail’, are collected and used again in the next distillation.
Finally, by adding distilled water, our freshly made, crystal clear spirit is then reduced to 40% ABV. The delicate, yet citrus-rich GoodWill Gin is then ready to be bottled and enjoyed straight away.
