jindea single estate tea gin
A CITRUS-FORWARD GIN WITH AROMATIC SPICES, PEACHES AND APRICOTS
The spirit is produced in a traditional alembic copper pot still to a classic London Dry Gin recipe, containing 10 botanicals including first-flush Darjeeling Tea. As well as subtle flavours of juniper, lemon, grapefruit, coriander, ginger, fennel, cardamom, cinnamon and angelica.
The brand is a result of a partnership between three bar scene experts, including Matthew Dakers, Jack Rackham from Emporia, and Adrian Gomes, owner of two Scottish bars and events company 10 Dollar Shake. The team enlisted a tea sommelier, Ajit Madam, co-founder of Camellia’s Tea House in London and UK’s first certified International Tea Education Institute (ITEI) Maser Tea Sommelier. Ajit introduced the makers to a first flush Darjeeling Tea from the Goomtee Estate, a single estate tea plantation in the Kurseong Valley, India. Darjeeling tea, known as the ‘Champagne of Teas’ and picturesque artisan tea gardens of Darjeeling, at the food of the Himalayas, produce less than 1% of India’s total tea production. This is mostly from single estate and often organic and hand-plucked.
Fresh and aromatic with elegant tea notes. Drying and aromatic, with a touch of ginger spiciness.
