Steeplechase Kauto Dry Gin
Distilled furlongs from the Home of Jump Racing, this single-run, small-batch gin combines a unique blend of twelve botanicals with the purest grain spirit to produce a gin with racing at its heart. This smooth yet powerful gin encapsulates one of the greatest jumps horses in history, Kauto Star. A juniper front is fleeting, with complexity coming through from the combination of lavender and heather, with more exotic flavours of kaffir lime, pink peppercorns and ginger. This enduring and memorable gin shines as brightly as one of the stars of steeplechasing history.
Simon Says: One of three great gins produced by Steeplechase (at the time of writing). Straight-up, this is an intense and flavoursome gin, with the soft floral aromatics guiding you into some great Asian-inspired flavours. With tonic, the citrus elements leap out of the glass alongside the beguiling crushed lavender; subtle, balanced spices fill the mid-palate before the kaffir lime comes back to the fore for a clean and refreshing finish. Distilled in the Cotswolds, its a great addition to our local collection.
