We’re led through the various stages, from the initial maceration of botanicals to the final delicate balancing of flavors. It’s a sensory experience that engages not only our taste buds but also our curiosity about the craftsmanship behind each bottle.
Of course, a visit to Listoe Gin Distillery wouldn’t be complete without a tasting session. We’re invited to savor a selection of their distinct gin creations, each with its own character and flavor profile. Whether we’re drawn to the floral notes of elderflower or the warmth of spices like cardamom and cinnamon, there’s a gin to suit every palate.
