Hidden Curiosities Gin was created by Cravat Club director Jenny, who after extensive research sampling nigh on 100 different craft gins over the course of a year, dedicated her time and passion to develop a unique recipe with a very distinctive character. The balance of aromatic spices from 5 different peppercorns and green cardamom, paired with strong citrus flavours from yuzu and pink grapefruit, and supported by a whole orchestra of highly delectable botanicals, formed a deeply complex and multifaceted artisan gin.
Working very closely with a local, yet renowned distillery in the Surrey Hills, who carried the right expertise for this exciting new project, Jenny was able to perfect and fine-tune her recipe in order to produce the specific result she had in mind. Using their magnificent hand-built 350 litre copper still, charismatically powered by a wood fired steam boiler, her first batch of Hidden Curiosities gin was born.
Jenny says, "I truly believe this gin is something very special indeed; the flavours transform depending on how you serve and garnish your Hidden Curiosities gin. It is extremely palatable neat, or by adding a splash of tonic will release more of the hidden botanicals residing in the background.
"My recommended garnish for the perfect gin & tonic would be pink peppercorns and green cardamom to intensify the spices; perfect for a winter gin, or if you have a penchant for pepperiness like myself! For more of a refreshing clean citrus taste, add a twist of pink grapefruit or yuzu peel."
