Nestled in the heart of Herefordshire’s landscape, a glut of damsons inspired Gattertop founder, Gemma Standeven, to create Damson Nº12 . The result of much experimenting, tweaking of recipes, and tasting by friends and family is a multiple award-winning taste-sensation. Awarded two stars in its first year by the Great Taste Awards, Damson Nº12 is still made to the same, perfect recipe.
Harvested in autumn from the family orchards, the damsons are steeped in premium vodka and distilled in small batches in copper stills in the old barn. Where many brands might speed up the process with syrups, Gattertop take their time, allowing a year for the delicate flavours to infuse the vodka. The precious spirit is then filtered, bottled and labelled by hand without leaving the barn. This is slow, thoughtful production at its best and the care is evident in the taste. A year of steeping allows the almond notes from the stone to add a delicate accent to the rich, fruity flavours of the damson. Here at Barbury Hill we’ve been enjoying it with ginger ale or adding it to a flute of fizz to give our evening an indulgent lift.
