Henners English Summer Gin - Boutinot

Henners English Summer Gin NV



The vines at our Henners English sparkling vineyard in East Sussex burst from bud to bloom on the first day of a certain British lawn tennis tournament every year. Without fail. We decided this was Mother Nature giving us a nudge firmly in the direction of a small batch ‘strawberries & cream’ inspired gin…so that’s exactly what Samantha Bailey (Master Blender, Henners, UK) and Dr John Walters (Master Distiller, English Spirits) have crafted in this limited edition, special ‘Henners Summer Strawberry’.

The plumpest, sweetest Kentish strawberries were selected to distil along with earl grey tea (smoky, sweet, bergamot), hedgerow nettle (herbaceous, verdant, mineral), and a handful of macadamia nuts (buttery, rich, cream). With the thwack of tennis balls on racquets ringing in our ears, we lovingly distilled our beautiful botanicals with grapes & wine from the Henners English Sparkling vineyard.

Tasting notes

Light summer flavours with hints of earl grey and strawberry with a rich mouthfeel.

Food match
