Hooting Owl East Yorkshire Gin 42% (05cl - 70cl)

Custom Etch Text:

Inspired by the rugged, breath-taking Yorkshire coastline, our East Yorkshire gin combines hints of the sea (kelp) with botanicals influenced by the meandering journey to the coast through the rolling Yorkshire Wolds including honey, dandelion, lavender, berries, and Hawthorne blossom.

(Inspired by David Hockney's The Big Hawthorne from 2008, which brings the quiet beauty of the Yorkshire Wolds into sharp focus)

The flavours effortlessly blend with juniper and citrus during our precise distillation process to create a smooth, sweet, floral, flavour-packed ‘traveling’ gin.

A clean distinctive lavender aroma is enhanced with herbs and mineral notes for an appealing freshness – this is certainly oceanic on the nose. In the mouth, the journey of the flavour profile starts with an herbaceous heat, that builds with notes of kafir lime leaves, liquorice and black cardamom, with a delightful lavender finish that gently builds on the palate, leaving a clean, nutty, woody, slightly toasted aftertaste. An array of botanicals on the palate creates a complex aromatic gin with great depth of aroma and flavour. The finish is smooth, long and keeps on giving.

“A sophisticated, accomplished drink”. “This gin really sings with depth and complexity” - Great Taste Award 2019 judges’ comments

(2-Star Rating)

Table 3: A clean and distinctive aroma, with mineral notes and an appealing freshness - this is certainly oceanic on the nose, reminiscent of sea salt spray. In the mouth, the heat builds to a lemon sherbet finish - bolstered by the lavender, perhaps - leaving an aftertaste that is nutty and slightly toasted. With the addition of water this finish achieved further balance. A sophisticated, accomplished drink. We enjoyed the journey of the flavour profile - particularly that clean, woody aftertaste. A little adjustment to bring out the citrus tones further would have taken this to the top for us.
Table 1: A seriously coriander-weighted gin on the nose, markedly biscuitty. Certainly an array of aromatics on the palate, held in reasonable, if powerful, balance. Swirling with an ice cube renders the somewhat aggressive alcohol impact considerably creamier and smoother. Still feels rather baseline and lacking citrus notes. Tonic lends some brightening citrus, giving a pleasing lift and much-needed freshness. We did find it hard to consider this in the London Dry category, it's really lacking punchy, bright juniper presence. But it does have a Big Presence in a G and T, and we can imagine a particular clientele very much enjoying that aspect.
Table 2: The aroma of the lavender is enhanced with herbs and the smell of the sea. This is a classic English country house gin, When diluted with water and or tonic, this gin really sings with depth and complexity.
Table 4: This is a complex aromatic gin with great depth of aroma and flavour. We especially picked out notes of lemongrass, liquorice and cardamon. The finish is smooth, long, very pleasant and keeps on giving.
