Cutting to the Chase

The Sociable Chatterbox goes to Taste of London

The Sociable Chatterbox visits Taste of London, Regents Park, London and stops by the Chase Distillery stand to sample Williams Chase Great British Extra Dry Gin

The fascinating world of food and beverage never ceases to amaze me and I adore nothing more than meeting the artisans of the industry.  Their passionate stories truly warm the cockles of my heart.  It is always such a pleasure to see the lovely team at Chase Distillery and their Field to Bottle story is truly inspiring

The first batch of Chase Vodka, that sublime creamy liquid was most certainly a labour of love.  It was produced in June 2008 and in just 5 years so much has been achieved through sheer hard work and perseverance.  Made with King Edward and Lady Claire potatoes and the mineral rich water from the Malvern Hills this award winning Vodka is hard to beat and is Gluten free.   Chase Vodka is one of my absolute favourites served with Fever-Tree soda and lots of market fresh lime or straight from the freezer in a single shot at 40% it certainly hits the spot

It was interesting to learn that Gin is made from Vodka…so in order to make Williams Chase Great British Gin those lovely folks have to first make the finest Chase Vodka a process which takes two weeks.  This is made from their own distilled spirit (no short cuts here) that is grown, fermented and distilled on Rosamund Farm in Herefordshire.  In fact this is the first single estate English gin to be created in over 200 years

This super premium Gin is 40% abv expression, it is both dry and spicy and has been designed for a perfect Gin & Tonic or a Sweet Martini perfect for your Great Gatsby parties.  I personally look forward to trying it in a Negroni next time

It is juniper-led in taste profile also worth noting that juniper berries as well as juniper buds are used to achieve that extra dry finish.  It boasts 10 supporting delicious botanicals which include; cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, bitter almond, coriander, cardamom, cloves, liquorish and lemon and priced at just £26
