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.

The Silent Pool Gin can thus be described with the words that characterize the water from Silent Pool: clear, pure and refreshing.

You are able to visit and have a look at the whole process at the distillery. And you will know when it’s time as the production of steam for heating the still is done by burning local wood and the chimney has a built-in whistle. Its 24 botanicals are incorporated in the spirit base on 3 different stages. The first portion is macerated in alcohol base to give the longest and deepest aftertaste. The second one is macerated in neutral higher degree alcohol, which is then filtered. This way, the oils from the botanicals are retained. On the last portion, the botanicals are added in their fresh form and are responsible for the life and freshness of the Silent Pool. When you sip the Silent Pool gin, you will feel the abundance of botanicals. Its aromas wander between floral and fruity, citric and a soft touch of honey and the ubiquitous juniper, which give a way to each other in a remarkable harmony.
