Small batch premium gin produced in Goosnargh.
Goosnargh Gin is lovingly crafted by Richard and Rachel Trenchard and is based at the foot of Beacon Fell, on the edge of the Forest of Bowland AONB, in the parish of Goosnargh, Lancashire. Their gins are distilled in small batches by hand, using a traditional copper alembic still. Their recipes are developed using their baby still, Constance. Once they have the blend of organic botanicals absolutely right, their larger still, Beatrice, then works her magic distilling handcrafted, small batch gin ready for bottling and hand labelling. All bottles are hand finished by Richard & Rachel including handwritten details such as the batch and bottle number.
All their gins are chapters and as such will continue to be written as their story evolves. Chapter One, their signature gin, contains a blend of 14 organic botanicals. Along with juniper, carefully selected botanicals, including meadowsweet, yarrow and elderflower, have been chosen to capture the spirit of the fells and surrounding meadows in each bottle.
Chapter Two, Dark Skies, takes you into the Forest of Bowland at night, where nocturnal creatures abound. Look skywards and be transported under the famous dark skies of Bowland. The comforting blend of 12 organic botanicals they've selected create a delicately spiced gin, including aniseed, root ginger, cardamom and vanilla.
Chapter Three - Floral Notes and Chapter Four - Hay Time were released in summer 2019. The stars of Chapter Three are Peony, Rose and Hibiscus, and Chapter Four is the product of collaboration with the Forest of Bowland AONB team and Peter Blackwell at Bell Sykes.
