River Test Distillery so perfectly encapsulates Barbury Hill’s ‘raison ‘d’être’ that we just had to feature them as part of our offering of small, independent British producers. Their award-winning small-batch gins are a shining example of the entrepreneurial and innovative spirit.
While the high-tech approach allows founders Sarah and Jonathan Nelson to craft a perfect product each and every time, it is the recipe and ingredients that make the difference between merely drinkable and award-winning.
Initially inspired by the ‘gin-clear’ waters of the River Test that flow by their home in Hampshire, Sarah and Jonathan now use the chalk-filtered water from the aquifer that feeds this river to craft a smooth and crisp gin.
Hints of florals and meadowsweet bring to mind the delicate blooms of an English country garden, orchards heavy with fruit, and rambling honeysuckle. Whether poured with a premium tonic or enjoyed neat over ice, the distinctive flavours and elegant palate make for a refreshing and memorable drink.
