Product information

Our gin starts where others finish, making distillation only the beginning for our accomplished spirit. We're very particular about how we make our award-winning Bathtub Gin. Copper pot-distilled gin is first made with juniper, coriander and other fragrant botanicals. We take a portion of this gin and painstakingly infuse it with a further six fresh botanicals, to truly capture the vibrant flavours of orange peel, cassia, juniper, coriander, cardamom and clove. It's this infusion which gives Bathtub its unique character, allowing those fresh botanical flavours - too delicate to survive traditional distillation - to shine through, leaving our gin with its distinctive botanical hue. It's only finished once wrapped, strung and waxed by hand, ready to deliver unparalleled fresh flavour to your G&Ts and cocktails.
The perfect Bathtub G&T is simply made with premium tonic water and a large orange wedge. The fresh and robust flavour of Bathtub makes it ideal to shine through a Negroni, and bring zip to a Southside.

Serving Suggestion - Bathtub Gin & Tonic: 50ml of Ableforth's Bathtub Gin, topped with premium tonic water in an ice-filled glass. Garnish with a large, orange wedge.
Negroni: 25ml of Ableforth's Bathtub Gin, 25ml sweet vermouth, 25ml Campari. Stir over ice and strain into an ice-filled rocks glass and garnish with orange zest.

Tasting Notes - Nose: Fresh and bold juniper leads the way with fragrant citrus and cardamom. Notes of fresh orange peel and cinnamon add to an enticing nose.
Palate: Juniper again leads, as it should in any gin, but there's plenty more besides. The mouth feel is thick and creamy whilst the cloves, coriander and cardamom offer depth.
Finish: Here the supporting botanicals really shine with lingering cardamom and orange peel on the tail.

Not content with this highly successful experiment, he proceeded to lock himself back inside his laboratory and set about on all manner of additional, exciting projects! The result was an entire range of original and reimagined spirits inspired by by-gone eras and modern technology alike! Whether it’s cold-compounding or distillation under vacuum, the madcap professor does whatever it takes to produce the finest libations and retain the freshness of the wonderful botanicals he uses.

Brilliant Zesty Gin

Tried this for the first and we love it. Definitely add a bit of orange peel as garnish (as recommended) as this really brings out the flavour and works with the botanicals.

A distinctive gin, with a different botanical flavour. Unequivocally it doesn't taste in the least bit like Beefeaters, or the other regular ones for that matter. Definitely up there with the likes of Chase and Hendricks - but it's all a matter of opinion isn't it?

This is really worth a try if you like your gin. It makes a particularly special gin and tonic. I was very impressed.

Delicious. Unique.

Rounded with a wonderful depth of flavor I've never found in gin and without the back-of-throat bitterness so common with off-the-shelf varieties. Delicious G&T with Fever Tree tonic. Certain will make an amazing martini with Cocchi Americano.
