The Cotswolds Distillery is delighted to launch the latest addition to its gin portfolio - Cotswolds Dry Gin Essence available online and at their three shops dotted around the Cotswolds.
Cotswolds Dry Gin Essence is a full-strength gin (ABV 46%) designed to reduce the amount of alcohol required in a G&T and in gin-based cocktails, whilst at the same time retaining intensity of flavour.
The essence is made using ten times the botanical concentration of their award-winning Cotswolds Dry Gin. This results in a huge amount of flavour per unit of alcohol.
Cotswolds Gin Essence is so rich in botanical character that just 5ml is needed for a full- flavour G&T, which has 1/10th of the alcohol of the usual Cotswolds signature serve. It comes in a 100ml bottle with a pipette and provides 20 serves. Five full pipette drops of gin amount to 5ml (a teaspoon) which is the recommended amount for one Gin Essence serve.
The essence contains 14 calories per 5ml serve and just 0.23 units of alcohol. As with Cotswolds Dry Gin, the gin essence is non-chill filtered so the oils from the botanicals are retained, which causes a pearlescent cloud to appear when ice or tonic is added, creating the unique Cotswolds Cloudy G&T.
Commenting on this latest innovation, Daniel Szor, CEO and founder of The Cotswolds Distillery says, "The team and I have really enjoyed the process of creating this fabulous new product and adding another expression to our premium spirits portfolio. We are increasingly aware that gin drinkers are looking to experiment with lower ABV serves and wanted to create something that tastes like a classic gin yet delivers a serve with less alcohol. We believe that this latest offering does just this, with no compromise on taste or flavour."
Cotswolds Dry Gin Essence is available to purchase from www.cotswoldsdistillery.com and at their three shops located in Broadway, Bourton on the Water and at The Cotswolds Distillery, Shipston-on-Stour. It's priced at £14.95 for a 100ml bottle ABV: 46%
