padstow brewing company cornish gin
London Dry Gin
After deciding upon their final recipe in their own tiny 1 litre still, the Padstow Brewing Co. outsourced the production of this gin to Cornish distillery Trevethan, who make this on their behalf. You can discover Trevethan's products at the bottom of this page.
Distilled using hops commonly found in the brewery's beers, including Pocket Rocket and Windjammer, you would expect floral and citrus notes to prevail above the piney juniper for this gin.
Another way to use hops in gin is to steep them in the spirit, resulting in what is known as a 'hopped gin'. This maceration results in much more aggressive bitter and citrus notes, as you would expect to find in an IPA beer.
