Foraged Edition Geranium Gin Gift Pack 200ml
Receiving countless gold medals at home and abroad, Daffy’s Gin has become a classic and the choice of any true connoisseur. We thought it couldn’t be topped, but then they released this…
Daffy’s Geranium Gin is their very first Foraged Edition and is available exclusively through Harvey Nichols. To create the gin, around 1,100 geranium leaves were handpicked from around the distillery in Strathmashie, Scotland. Macerated over seven months, these leaves add a hearty herbal quality and a stupendously summery feel to this gin. Expect a warmth like sunshine on your back as you admire the geraniums on the patio, zippy citrus, creamy toffee and a shed-load of spicy complexity. Each gift box comes with a 200ml bottle of gin – one of only 130 produced – and a goblet, into which you can mix plenty of ice, gin, mint leaves, a slice of pink grapefruit and your favourite premium tonic. We also think it works rather nicely with Harvey Nichols Orange & Lavender Tonic Water.
The team at the distillery told us: “We are super excited to have created this small batch masterpiece with Harvey Nichols. One of the most exciting things about our distillery in the Highlands is that we are immersed in nature, surrounded by diverse and plentiful botanicals. This is a central part of our gin school where we teach distilling but this is the first time that we have released for purchase one of our small batch foraged gins. To have done this in collaboration with Harvey Nichols is very special and proud moment for us.”
Daffy is the Goddess of Gin. First written about in the 1700s, her essence has been distilled down into Daffy’s small batch gins. This gift pack includes a 200ml gin and a Spanish crystal glass. The bottle and the copa include the figurehead illustration of ‘Daffy’ as painted in 2014 by Robert McGinnis, the artist behind the Breakfast at Tiffany’s, James Bond and Barbarella posters. The gin itself is crafted at the Strathmashie Distillery in the Cairngorms National Park by a former winemaker and whisky distiller called Chris Molyneaux. He steeps classic botanicals and more exotic ingredients in French wheat grain spirit before distilling them in an ancient copper pot whisky still. Bottled with the purest Scottish spring water at a perfectly balanced strength, the results are quite simply the elixir of the gods.
