Boadicea Gin in its classic blue bottle is available year round. Distilled in copper to create an ultra-smooth London dry gin. Deliciously enjoyable on its own over ice, or add just a splash of tonic and garnish with orange and fresh thyme to create a longer cocktail.
First we create our spirit from the finest Norfolk barley and then gently redistil in our 300 litre copper alembic still, to vapour infuse a basket of the finest botanicals, including juniper, citrus and with a nod to the Iceni - nettle.
A delicious easy to make cocktail is one part of Boadicea Gin and one part elderflower tonic, served over ice and garnished with a slice of fresh orange and fresh thyme. We call this a Boadicea Gin Thyme!
Tasting notes: Herby citrus notes come through with the sweetness from the nettles first, then a nice punch of juniper with the spice coming through at the end. Very smooth and great to sip neat, or with just a splash of elderflower tonic.
Alcohol: 40% ABV.
Allergens: Gluten free and does not contain any notifiable allergens.
Pack size: 50cl bottle.
Why a blue bottle? In Iceni times, Caesar (the Roman invader) wrote that the Britons ‘dye their bodies with woad to produce a blue colour’. We colour our bottles blue in a fitting tribute to Boadicea – the Queen of the Iceni. We also adorn our bottles with pewter triple spirals; powerful symbols of the Iceni tribe.
