Raisthorpe Manor introduces ‘Gypsey Race’ Distilled Dry Gin and Oak-Aged Dry Gin

Mineral water flowing up from ancient springs beneath the Yorkshire Wolds is being harnessed to create two distinctive – and very local – new gins.

Award-winning Wharram drinks producer Raisthorpe Manor is using the waters of the ‘Gypsey Race’, a chalk stream that runs under the Manor gardens, for the company’s first ever Raisthorpe Distilled Dry Gin (40% abv) and Raisthorpe Oak-Aged Dry Gin (42% abv).

The water is steeped with fresh botanicals before being distilled in the traditional way by Master Distillers, with watercress – once farmed around the Gypsey Race floodplains 100 years ago – added to the Raisthorpe Distilled Dry Gin to give it a unique peppery finish. The Raisthorpe Oak-Aged Dry Gin is rested in whisky barrels to give it a smooth, mellow flavour with a hint of vanilla and spice.

“Our two new gins have been two years in development, and we are thrilled to see them finally come to fruition,” says Julia Medforth, from Raisthorpe Manor, already famous for its innovative fruit gin liqueurs, including a Damson Port, which won three Gold Stars in the Great Taste Awards in 2014.  New additions this year, award winning Gooseberry gin and Rhubarb Gin.  “It was a natural progression for us to add a gin to our portfolio of award-winning liqueurs and fruit vodkas and we had growing demands from customers to add a gin to our range.

Like all our products, local and fresh ingredients are the key and it’s wonderful to be using water from the Yorkshire Wolds and watercress to give the drinks that special Raisthorpe touch. A sophisticated twist on a gin and tonic”

Raisthorpe Distilled Dry Gin and Raisthorpe Oak-Aged Dry Gin are available in 70cl, 35cl and 5cl bottles, and can be purchased from www.raisthorpemanor.com
