Hawthorn’s Gin is British through and through. Founded by Will Turnage in July 2015, Hawthorn’s is produced to a recipe formulated by his late grandfather, Royal Navy Commander Michael Wallrock, during the Second World War and was awarded a Gold Medal at the 2016 San Francisco World Spirits Competition. Hawthorn’s is a single batch award-winning gin and the botanicals are sourced from the same four corners of the globe in which Will’s grandfather laid anchor. Staying true to traditional hand-crafted methods, Hawthorn’s is distilled from 100% English wheat in a vintage copper pot still. Many of the stills are over a hundred years old and have been passed down through generations of Master Distillers along with their knowledge, techniques and expertise. Whilst the exact recipe remains a secret, some of the botanicals included are: juniper from Macedonia, orange and lemon peel from Seville, Orris Root, Angelica Root and Cassia bark from Indonesia.
Hawthorn’s have developed a range of cocktails to complement the flavours found within the gin, these include Hawthorn’s On Fire (with Chilli), Hawthorn’s Gin Mule and Hawthorn’s Pumpkin Gin Fizz.
