Whenever possible we use locally sourced juniper in Hotspur Gin. Hand-foraged on the moors of Northumberland, it has a punchy and aromatic flavour contributing to Hotspur Gin's ultra smooth taste.
Northumbrian moorland heather is crucial in defining Hotspur Gin's distinctive flavour. Considered to be of international significance and native only to the UK, its rich, earthy flavour acts as a wonderful addition contributing to a truly unique gin.
A close relative of the blueberry, bilberry isn't often used as a botanical ingredient within gin but it's one of our favourites! They provide a smooth but sweet flavour to Hotspur Gin and can be found growing naturally in Northumberland.
Orange is one of the key botanicals in Hotspur Gin. It is crucial in maintaining the ultra-smooth balance that makes our gin special. The powerful aromas and its oil-rich rind make it a great binding agent to bring all of the contrasting ingredients together.
Rose petals offer a subtle but aromatic addition to Hotspur Gin. The floral undertones counter-balance the earthy, resinous notes and complement the sweetness of the orange peel and pink grapefruit.
