"Racing Spirit Gin" is a traditionally crafted London dry Gin. Our IWSC silver medal award winning Gin is enhanced with citrus botanicals and delicate warming spices. We use seven quality botanicals to offer a well balanced blend with a smooth long palate and a classic combination of flavours.
Our botanicals: Juniper, Angelica Root, Lemon Peel, Orange Peel, Liquorice Bark, Coriander, Orris Root.
The Bottle: Inspired by motor racing legend Tazio Nuvolari our stunning racing inspired bottle is made up of a number of key elements. The car featured on the front is the beautiful 1934 Alfa Romeo Tipo B car number 50005 , the actual car that Nuvolari won the 1935 German Grand Prix in 85 years ago this year.
We were inspired by Graeme Hardy's portrayal of Tazio at motoring events such as Goodwood Revival and so we decided we had to have him as the face of our brand. The portrait photography of Russell Cobb had long been a favourite of ours and when we came across his portrait shots of Graeme there was no other choice for us for our main bottle image.
With an Idea forming as to what we wanted the bottle to look like we turned to talented American designer Chad Hill of Django Studios to bring our ideas to life. We wanted the bottle to echo the vintage detailing of the 1930`s so our stopper has a silver metallic finish. The sleeve of the bottle which is foil etched and has embossed rivets adds to the vintage look of the bottle which is topped off with a embossed leather effect buckle and strap to imitate the bonnet strap of a period racing car.
We are certain you will enjoy our gin and we have new spirits in the pipeline along with the option of bespoke orders as special corporate gifts.
