Brief Description
Silent Pool, the natural swimming pool and the distillery are both found in the small village of Albury in Surrey. Ian McCulloch, the founder of the company, found in the natural beauty of Silent Pool the perfect place to set up his distillery and, more importantly, find the inspiration for the spirits he distils there. The Gin Silent Pool can therefore be described with the words which also characterize the water of Silent Pool, the lake – limpid, pure and refreshing. Silent Pool allies the almost orthodox ancestral methods of distillation with new techniques of flavouring the spirit base, paying extreme attention to the smallest details. The production of steam for heating the still by burning wood grown nearby, ending up in a chimney with a whistle is just one of those details.
The botanicals, 24 in total, are incorporated in the spirit base in 3 distinct stages. A first portion is macerated in the alcohol base to confer a long and deep flavour to the Gin. A second portion is macerated in a higher strength neutral alcohol which is then filtered. This way the oils in which the aromatic components are found can be retained. The final portion, in which not all 24 botanicals are present, is added to the still inside an aroma basket. All the botanicals in there are fresh, not dried, and are responsible to for the life and freshness of Silent Pool.
The abundance of botanicals is obvious on first contact. Its aroma meanders between floral and fruity, citric and the gentle touch of honey and the ever present juniper, which give room to each other in a pleasing harmony. Citrus fruits, such as the fresh tasting lime, the common lime and the Kaffir lime, combine with the gentler bergamot. The floral touch of camomile, elderflower and lavender round out the palate and guarantee the extreme smoothness of this Gin. The presence of pear strongly punctuates the Gin along with the spices such as star anise and cassia, and the sweetness of the honey.

Hendrick's | Scotland

Origin Scotland
Alcoholic Volume 44º
Type Distilled Gin
Known Botanicals Caraway, angelica root, chamomile, coriander seed, orange and lemon peels, iris root, cucumber, Cubeba pepper, rose petals, elderberry and juniper flower.

Brief Description
Hendrick's revolutionized the Gin world when it introduced the fresh cucumber aromas and the soft scent of rose petals instead of the more traditional citric versions. Hendrick's was born at the turn of the millennium and soon it distanced from the status quo. Banished the citrus into the background and gave priority to the freshness of the cucumber and the rose petals elegance. Hendrick's also innovated in the production process which uses two different stills. The Bennet where botanicals are placed directly in infusion and the Carter-Head where botanicals are arranged in layers and their scents dragged by steam. Hendrick's comes from the combination of the strength of the first with the elegance of the second and last infusion and from the cucumber from Belgium and Holland and roses from Bulgaria. Hendrick's has a fresh and floral aromas but leaving space for the juniper.
