Ableforth's Bathtub Gin
A multi award-winning gin which is made using a traditional method known as cold compounding. Botanicals such as juniper, coriander, cardamom, cinnamon, orange peel and clove are infused in top quality copper pot-still spirit, resulting in Bathtub Gin’s extraordinary flavour as well as its handsome tint. Think of it as the ‘dry-hopping’ of gin.
Each bottle is wrapped entirely by hand using paper, twine and wax. A favourite amongst amateur and professional mixologists alike, Bathtub Gin is also absolutely perfect in a classic Gin & Tonic.

Nose: An initially juniper-rich bouquet is backed up with a solid backbone of rich grain spirit. Top notes of cardamom and orange blossom are evident with just a suggestion of cinnamon.
Palate: The initial focus is juniper, but the earthier botanicals make themselves known in the initial palate too. Mouthfeel is exceptionally viscous and creamy – this is good spirit, and it makes itself known.
Finish: The juniper subsides and gives way to the cardamom and cinnamon, with a late resurgence from orange peel.
Overall: A most unusual, but quite entrancing gin. To our knowledge this is the only cold-compounded gin currently available.
