Silent Pool Rare Citrus Gin
Silent Pool Rare Citrus Gin was born out of the shared passion of two friends. In 2014, brand founders Ian McCulloch and James Shelbourne met at their local pub in Surrey to discuss their visions and dreams. They quickly concluded that their common goal is to create a truly sustainable distillery, located next to a freshwater source, producing handmade craft alcohol from local ingredients. After visiting many places in the south of England, one day Ian McCulloch came across a dilapidated farm Sherbourne located on the shores of the magical Silent Pool in Surrey Hills. This atmospheric area, shrouded in myths and legends, turned out to be an ideal place. Excited by the find, Ian and James contacted the landowner - the Duke of Northumberland, and then decided to breathe life into the dilapidated farm buildings, thus creating their dream distillery, which they called the Silent Pool.
Silent Pool Rare Citrus Gin, as the name suggests, is an innovative and tempting spirit made by hand from the world's rarest citrus fruits. The Silent Pool distillery team didn't want to do something as simple as a regular single citrus gin, though. The distillers wanted to showcase the wonderful world of citrus, so in order to create an exceptionally high-quality pure spirit, free from artificial flavors and unprocessed ingredients, Silent Pool Rare Citrus Gin is distilled using a unique four-step process. In their search for the best citrus fruits, the Silent Pool Distillers team searched the world and finally discovered two famous citrus collectors on the Alentejo coast in Portugal, who boast an amazing collection of over 300 varieties of citrus imported from distant corners of the planet. The citrus grove, which grew hundreds of the rarest and most amazing fruits, far exceeded all expectations of the British distillers' team.
The team tasted dozens of citrus varieties, then selected the most interesting and aromatic flavors to take back to their distillery and be able to begin formulating a new, distinctive gin. After many recipes have been developed, distillers have opted for four citrus fruits: Buddha's Hand, (the fruit of this citrus resembles Buddha's hands), Natsu Dai Dai (a combination of orange and pomelo), Hirado Buntan (pomelo) and Seville Green Orange. Contrary to appearances, this is not a flavored gin, but rather a masterfully blended spirit that is both aromatic and unique in taste. Its uniqueness is also evidenced by the fact that this gin has won many awards, including a gold medal at the London Spirits Competition 2021.
The resulting gin is spicy and full of citrus flowers and exotic fruits, leading to sweet notes of honey and melon, with juniper blending these flavors together. The tropical, peppery notes are enhanced with cardamom and Timur pepper, which adds a fruity, peppery note to the grapefruit.
Silent Pool Rare Citrus Gin tastes great in Negroni due to its orange, spicy and citrus profile.
