Distillation Method - Zephyr is a premium London Dry Gin produced by re-distilling neutral grain spirit with natural botanicals such as juniper berries, citrus peel, and coriander seeds but also elderflower & elderberry.

Elderflower is a powerful botanical & requires special attention during the production process. Zephyr, produced in small batches in a 60 year old copper pot still called Constance (Connie) & named after their head distillers' mother.

All the selected ingredients are heated in a copper pot still so that the flavours and aromas are released into the spirit vapour giving Zephyr its unique flavour & character. The resulting spirit is then blended to produce high strength gin of about 94% ABV. It is then reduced in strength prior to bottling.

The Blu uses the same base as Black with an added 'natural' blue colour and a natural elderberry infusion (added after distillation).

I drink this with Fentimans tonic water for a really nice gin & tonic. Friends who drink more gin than I do have described it as a very good gin.
