The 350th anniversary of horse racing at Newmarket has been celebrated with a new artisan gin, distilled in Newmarket by English Spirit Distillery master distiller Dr John Walters. The gin is said to have been handcrafted from local botanicals, including juniper, coriander and Seville oranges, as well as locally sourced wild chives, Devil’s Dyke orchid petals and alfalfa that is fed to Newmarket’s thoroughbred racehorses. Walters said: “Taking the classic botanical juniper, we add a citrus surround to create a deliciously complex finish. Our greatest challenge was looking at the wonderful local offering and incorporating this to create a truly Newmarket gin.”
