A miniature bottle of the Gin Wicked Wolf produced 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. 1869 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 Gin is an award-winning distillery run by husband and wife team Julie and Pat. They are based in the middle of Lorna Doone country in North Devon on Exmoor, and create their amazing small-batch spirits by the banks of the River Lyn. They produce the premium spirits by individually distilling each botanical very slowly to capture their full flavour before skilfully blending to create their unique Gins and Vodka.
