Chase (formerly Tyrrells) were originally potato farmers. So, what would you traditionally do if you have a glut of produce? Distill it, of course! After starting out with a potato vodka, they soon moved into gin, which now uses an apple-based spirit, as they found the potato base gave an unwanted characteristic to the final product. This exceptional dry gin uses 10 botanicals, ginger being one of the more unusualÂ ones. With a good all round mix of flavours, this is still very much a juniper-forward gin.Â We would recommend East Imperial Burma Tonic, garnished with Ginger for a great G&T.
