From the idea in 2004, it took us until April fool’s day 2008 to harvest the first of our potatoes, making the first batch of vodka in June 2008. Upon tasting the very first drop from the column before filtering, I was so enamored and proud of it, I decided to call it Chase Vodka. And so Chase Distillery was born. Grown and distilled and bottled in Herefordshire, England. We infuse juniper buds and berries to ensure that we distil the driest gin possible, followed by 10 fine botanicals including; cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, almond, coriander, cardamom, cloves, liquorice and lemon. On the nose; dry juniper with zesty citrus with some warm, spicy notes. Juniper, dark chocolate and citrus zest upfront on the palate, followed by notes of cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger.
The gin is copper pot distilled with the addition of elderflowers picked from Herefordshire hedgerows. The gin is light and floral on the bouquet, bolstered by rich juniper and citrus notes. The palate shows a floral, delicate and sweet elderflower hit immediately, leading into citrus notes. You’ll also find rich juniper and subtle spice with a long-lasting floral sweetness on the palate. The finish is rich and full of texture; long lasting floral sweetness and piney juniper.
