This Limited Edition Gin was created to celebrate the folklore surrounding the Beast of Exmoor (aka the Exmoor Beast), said to be a phantom cat that roams the moors and fields of Exmoor. The gin incorporates Exmoor Ales dark porter Exmoor Beast, blood orange, szechuan peppercorns, sea buckthorn, wolfberry, cocoa nibs, coriander and juniper. The Beast opens in the mouth with a fresh crisp juniper and spicy coriander, developing into the tangy citrus of blood orange, sea buckthorn and szechuan peppercorns. The finish is subtle hints of wolfberry and Exmoor Beast dark porter, all wrapped up in the velvety smooth mouth feel of cocoa.
Produced at 66.6% abv, it has been slow distilled to capture more of the essential oils from the botanicals. When mixed with a premium tonic , it releases essential oils delivering more flavour and producing a cloudy appearance.
