THE PERFECT BLEND
Rule Gin is produced in a custom made beautiful copper still, named after Julie’s great grandmother ‘Christa Usher’. The main 6 botanicals are steeped over night while the pomelo and orange peel sit above the column, in a separate botanical basket. This ensures the citrus flavours don’t overpower the other botanicals sitting in the still and results in a quality spirit.
The cloudberry is the flower of Peebles and gives Rule Gin its delicious sweet taste, while the pomelo balances this to create the desired classic London dry gin style.
OUR WONDERFUL BOTANICALS
Smooth, fresh and delicate – we have loved making this gin and love the way it tastes, we hope you do too.
This is the foundation of Gin.
Sourced from Europe and dried slowly before being shipped to give it a truly deep, aromatic flavour.
With warm, spicy and nutty tones, Coriander is the perfect partner for the Juniper berry. Another staple in any great gin it has amazing character which compliments the flavour.
It may not look pretty but without this little root the spirit wouldn’t blend as perfectly as it does. It has sweet and musky scents which bind the main ingredients together.
GRAINS OF PARADISE
Peppery, fiery seeds give warmth and heat to the gin, being very potent, a little goes a long way.
With its many health benefits, Liquorice also has great flavour which is why it is used in so many confectionery sweets, teas and spirits.
Finely ground into a powder it gives off beautiful aromas and texture to our gin.
This is the fruity part. Pomelo has a smell like nothing else; it is citrusy sweet and tangy to the taste. Grown in Vietnam, we cannot do without this incredible fruit.
Orange ‘cloud-like’ berries are found in Nordic climates, cold and harsh. It has also grown in parts of Scotland as well, Breadalbane in the Scottish Highlands has a hill called Beinn nan Oighreag which means ‘Hill of Cloudberries’.
They have a unique taste that resembles blackberries and raspberries.
SWEET ORANGE PEEL
Dried on the day of harvest for perfect flavour. It is sweet, zesty and brings in all the citrus botanicals together. It is also our signature garnish when making Rule and tonic.
