Wrecking Coast Summer Strawberry Gin

A special edition, created for the summer and packed with the most summery of fruit: strawberries. After long experimentation, we have created a gin that’s run through with strawberry flavour as well as spicy juniper and sweet citrus. It’s all achieved through careful distillation, with no added sweeteners or flavourings, although we do add a touch of natural colouring to give the gin its flavour-enhancing pink hue – you may drink with your mouth, but you take your first taste with your eyes.

Boddington’s Berries

Established in the 1940s as a market garden, Boddington’s Berries is now run by the third generation of the family and their strawberries are now accredits as ‘Product of Cornwall’.

Boddington’s now grow strawberries in three different areas (outdoors and under different types of cover) for the fresh fruit market – with fruit available from the end of April through to the end of July.

It is from these fresh strawberries that our Summer Strawberry Gin is made.

Tasting Notes

A sweet but unsweetened gin that shows what you can do if you spend a long time playing with strawberries. It’s great with lemonade or elderflower tonic, or even just with a splash of soda. Make sure you garnish with a fistful of strawberries for a huge hit of summer, no matter how much it’s raining outside.

Nose

White chocolate, freshly sliced strawberries and cream – a liquid Eton mess. Spicy juniper breaks through the meringue with a lemon tart in tow, complete with buttery biscuit base: a summer sweet trolley. Gentle notes of meadow flowers and elderflower cordial develop.

Palate

Soft and creamy strawberry mousse leads, quickly followed by peppery juniper and freshly cracked black pepper. Layers of citrus pith and peel support the strawberries, with musky spice slowly building from underneath.

Finish

Juniper dominates, softened by hints of creamy strawberry cheesecake and sweetened whipped cream.

The Story

A brief introduction to The Wrecking Coast Distillery

Inside the shed

Avian Sandercock

Minder of the stills, conductor of experiments, flavour obsessive and chief geek. If you have drunk anything made by Wrecking Coast, you have Avian to thank for pressing the buttons, pulling the levers, shovelling ingredients, and probably for putting it in the bottle.

Outside the shed

Craig Penn

Head salesman, arbiter of design, one-man online team and chief taste-tester. If you have held a bottle from Wrecking Coast in your hands, then you have Craig to thank for both how it looks and for extracting it from the Cornish countryside and getting it to you.

In the beginning...

Buddies Avian and Craig have dabbled in drinks for years, although from the drinking side of the bar. Having lost his taste for beer, Craig turned to spirits.
