Williams Seville Orange Gin
Williams Chase // England
The Chase Distillery is a field-to-bottle distillery. Their Williams Seville Orange Gin uses a base of potatoes which are grown on the family farm. In addition to using Seville orange peel, potatoes are transformed into a neutral spirit before being infused with 8 botanicals include juniper, licorice root, elderflower, and bitter almond. Note: This is not currently available in the U.S.
Distilled GinThis style of gin takes a neutral spirit and then adds juniper berries and other natural flavorings before it is re-distilled. After distillation, additional flavors (artificial or natural) and sweeteners may be added.
"The Seville orange peel is prominent on the nose, but their gin is not made like their Chase Marmalade Vodka which cook the peels. The gin itself is less sweet than you might expect, which is positive or negative depending on your palate. That said, the gin is flavorful throughout with its star, Seville orange peel, taking center stage. The juniper and other botanicals work as a chorus to their leading lady. The finish shows a gentle floral note. This is a no-brainer for daytime cocktails such as the French 75 or even a Gin Mule."
