Coriander, or 'cilantro', as the Romans knew it, plays a crucial part in the complex flavour combinations at play in Hadrian's Wall Gin. We've spent hours sourcing the correct coriander seeds for our gin, ensuring we used a variation synonymous with Roman life during their occupation of the wall. Typically more discernible toward the end of the flavour journey.
Considered to be the third most important botanicals in gin, angelica acts as a binding agent within Hadrian's Wall Gin contributing to the successful amalgamation of the various ingredients. Particularly noticeable when sampled neat, angelica is sweet, but not overpowering and is one of the key botanicals we've used to create an authentic, but distinct flavour.
Pimento, or 'allspice' as it's commonly known, is one of the key ingredients contributing to the aromatic flavours & aromas present within Hadrian's Wall Gin. Noticeable at different points throughout the flavour journey, pimento is particularly palatable when sampled neat or paired with an exotic mixer. To really bring out the flavour, add additional pimento spices to your G&T or cocktail.
Chamomile, or 'chamomilla', is vital in providing the sweet undertones present within Hadrian’s Wall Gin, and combines perfectly with the other botanicals offering floral notes. Famed for its medicinal properties, the Romans believed irrefutably in its healing powers and used chamomile in food, drink and medicinal remedies. However, we like it for very different reasons. It doesn't dissipate, nor does it dominate Hadrian's Wall Gin, subtly complimenting the other botanical ingredients contributing to a full-flavoured gin.
Garden mint is rarely used as a botanical ingredient in gin, however, we believe it's one of the key contributors to Hadrian's Wall Gin's oriental flavour. Typically used in gin cocktails, mint offers a memorable balance between different sweet & savoury botanicals working together within Hadrian's Wall Gin.
