The Teasmith Original Gin (70 cl)
Location: Udny, Aberdeenshire
Inspired by Aberdeenshire, The Teasmith Original Gin is the first Scottish gin to use tea as the primary botanical.
It is the regions largely unknown rich historical links to the tea-trade that influenced Teasmith's use of hand-picked Ceylon Tea. James Taylor, a young man from Auchenblae in the North East of Scotland, was known as the 'Father of Ceylon Tea' as he planted the very first tea plantation in Sri Lanka over 150 years ago.
The Teasmith is distilled with hand-picked and hand-rolled black loose leaf Ceylon tea sourced from the Amba Estate, Sri Lanka. Other carefully selected botanicals include juniper, coriander, grains of paradise and orange peel. The botanicals are distilled twice in copper alembic stills to produce this distinct, crisp gin.

Teasmith Gin is bright and crisp on the nose with a mix of juniper and citrus. On the palate juniper and citrus are at the fore with the sublte addition of spice. As these fade, a minty sweetness develops.
