The ultimate summer sip, Hydro Garden Gin is from 1881 Distillery, located within Peebles Hydro Hotel and resort. This exclusive product, with just 200 50cl bottles in production, is a blend of elderflower, rose and gorse among various other locally sourced botanicals and is available from www.1881distillery.com for £30.
Charlie Leckie, 1881 Brand Manager, said: “We’re blessed with rich natural resources at Peebles Hydro and we’re proud to use the landscape as our inspiration. To create this new product, we wanted to think about quintessential summer flavours while also celebrating the rich history of the Hydro.
“Hydro Garden Gin has a subtly floral flavour with a distinctive coconut and vanilla infusion from the gorse matched with fragrant rose and the classic elderflower with underlying pear notes. Paired with a refreshing tonic and garnished with ice and berries, it’s a perfect summer serve.
“This is the first in a series of summer releases we have planned for the coming years at 1881. Each year we intend to spotlight a different botanical or flavour which is grown in our gardens and greenhouses on the Peebles Hydro grounds. We hope this inaugural seasonal offering will be enjoyed by gin lovers across the globe.”
Named after the year Peebles Hydro Hotel was founded, 1881 gin uses local botanicals and a sustainable onsite spring water source at Shieldgreen – the same mineral-rich spring originally famed for rejuvenating water treatments – to create a range of uplifting spirits.
