The mulberry gives a sweetness on the nose. The first hit is of juniper complemented by the sharp elderberry. A hint of pepper from the coriander is followed by the delicate mulberry. Finishes with a soft smoothness on the tongue and just a hint of pineapple at the end.
Greystone Gin is made at Whittaker’s distillery by the Harewood House Food & Drink project. They have used hand-picked mulberries from a 100-year-old tree growing on the shores of Harewood lake and foraged elderberries from throughout the estate. Distilled at the award-winning Whittaker’s Gin, the result is a true Yorkshire triumph of flavour.
The name comes from the Greystone rock, which is a series of concentric circles pecked out of rock with a deer antler, its over 4000 years old – older than the house and the castle.
Greystone Gin is versatile and can be enjoyed in a number of ways, but is very popular straight over ice to get the full flavour hit.
