Chilgrove Bluewater Edition is said to draw its inspiration from the ‘rich history’ that exists between England and Australia, in terms of the early explorers and settlers and also the subsequent maritime trade routes. The botanicals which have been chosen all had their part to play in this story, says the company.

Bottled at 46% abv, Chilgrove Bluewater Edition is a London Dry gin crafted using 14 botanicals, including indigenous Australian and English botanicals. These are distilled with a 100% grape alcohol base and natural mineral water, said to be sourced from the South Downs which surround the hamlet of Chilgrove in West Sussex.

Bluewater tasting note: crisp, citrus notes from the Australian botanicals that complement the traditional gin flavours that the English botanicals deliver. The botanicals are depicted on each side of the bottle, while the neck label alludes to Captain James Cook’s first voyage, during which he became the first European to map the coastline of New Zealand and land on Australia’s east coast, fittingly at Botany Bay.
