Wicked Wolf created this gin to celebrate 150 years since the launch of the book Lorna Doone. Wicked Wolf is based (both home and distillery!) in the Valley in which the book is set. 1869 has a slightly more local feel to the botanicals with the use of meadowsweet, whortleberries (bilberries) and heather. It also contains vanilla which is obviously not so local! This gin is gentle but still has bags of flavour and a soft finish from the vanilla. Wicked Wolf Gin 1869 Lorna Doone Gin1869 is perfect with a quality Indian tonic water and a fine slice of lemon. It also blends beautifully with a Mediterranean style Tonic water.
Wicked Wolf is an artisan small batch distillery based in the middle of Lorna Doone country in North Devon on Exmoor. All their spirits are small batch and handcrafted.
