Half Hitch Gin - 70cl - 40% ABV
In late 2014 Mark Holdsworth, formerly of Barcardi, launched Half Hitch Gin, bringing a historic process back to Camden by distilling his gin in Victorian vaults located right next to one of the biggest former gin warehouses in the world, the Interchange Building.
Half Hitch Gin -
Having made a base gin consisting of angelica root, cassia bark, coriander seed, juniper, liquorice root, sweet lemon, orange peel and orris root, Holdsworth adds tinctures of black tea, bergamot, wood & pepper as well as a vacuum distillate of hay. Bottled at 40% ABV, Half Hitch Gin has an auburn hue reminiscent of lightly barrel-aged gins.
Half Hitch Gin has distinct aromas of sticky, waxy pine and zesty lemons. To taste black tea is much more prominent, so too is the bergamot and cracked pepper. Both flavours combine to form a rich caramel, slightly sweet and viscous feeling.
This is the perfect amount of G & TEA to be unique yet still a spirit that gin fans would reach for. It's a good choice for those seeking something slightly different while also wanting that refreshing juniper and citrus kick we all need come Gin O'Clock.
