DISTILLATION

TRADITIONAL METHODS, A TRULY UNIQUE FLAVOUR
Proudly distilled in Scotland, we selected Strathearn Distillery as our production partner.  Following time honoured methods and with meticulous care, we distil our carefully chosen ingredients in traditional copper alembic stills.  Our distillation process is a two-stage method.  We distill the tea leaves separately to the other botanicals.  Having been left to steep in alcohol, we gently apply heat to the still and begin to capture the complex flavours that our tea leaves release.  Beginning with soft floral notes, the flavour profile changes as the temperature rises, offering at first a bold, blood orange taste, and finally a distinct and lingering, minty sweetness.
Our other more classic gin botanicals are distilled collectively, placed in a vapour basket in the head of the still. The alcohol vapours do the work here, carefully extracting all the flavours to create a lighter tasting spirit.  This is then blended with the tea distillate to create a memorable gin that is both delicate and sweetly warming on the palate, enjoyable neat on ice or in a carefully crafted cocktail.

OUR ORIGINAL RECIPE

The Teasmith Original was created to be a quintessential classic dry style of gin.  To marry with the soft floral and citrus notes of Ceylon tea, nine other botanicals were chosen to give the spirit its unique flavour.  These include Coriander Seed, Orange Peel, Angelica root Liquorice root, Calamus root, Grains of Paradise and sprinkle of rose petals.   
The Teasmith is a truly unique gin, characterised by its clarity, simplicity and confidence.
