Modern distillers are never content, they are continuously pushing the spirit boundaries, and with that often develop stunning tastes we would have never thought of.
Ever considered mixing pinot Noir with gin? Well Chapel Down, who are known for their award-winning wine fusions, did and it looks like they have created this summer’s must-have tipple.
The Kent-based vineyard are adding to their very successful Spirit of Chapel Down vodka and gin white wine range with another delicious looking drink – the Pinot Noir gin.
Chapel Down are pushing the boundaries of wine and spirit making, bringing together winemaking expertise with modern distillation techniques to create truly unique flavours.
The creative distillers have extended their drinks offering with what they believe is the first ever pinot noir gin infusion.
The pinot noir gin is created using distilled pinot noir grape skins from the Chapel Down’s harvest.
The grapes are then infused with juniper, coriander, dried red berries, rose buds, citrus fruits, rosehip, angelica and grains of paradise.
The end result? An aromatic pink gin with delicate aromas of red berries, which subtly balance the juniper led palate and refreshing citrus finish.
If that was not all, the Spirit of Chapel Down addition is packaged in an elegant, custom-made 70ml glass bottle, which evokes the strong links the spirit has with the two production methods, distillation and winemaking.
The bottom half of the bottle reflects a cut-glass crystal decanter and the frosted top half of the bottle denotes the classic shape of a typical wine bottle.
The 70ml bottle contains 41.2 ABV and is priced at £35. To order your very own pinot noir gin visit Chapel Down Online.
