Greensand Ridge Gin Review & Tasting Notes
About Greensand Ridge Gin
Greensand Ridge London Dry Gin is produced in-house with 15 botanicals, including eight local botanicals that grow within a mile of the distillery in the fields, woods and orchards beneath the Greensand Ridge. These are combined with 7 carefully selected classic botanicals such as juniper, cardamom, coriander seeds, and citrus peels.
Greensand Ridge use advanced technology and 100% renewable energy and also work with Kent's farmers to reduce food waste at the farm gate by fermenting and distilling quality produce that supermarkets won't take.
The Gin Guide Review
The sustainable production of Greensand Ridge Gin is truly impressive, from recycling and using renewable energy to collaborating with local farmers and supermarkets to utilise excess crops and produce. It is an admirable ethos and approach backed up by an equally admirable and impressive gin. Savoury and herbaceous flavours are beautifully balanced with piney juniper, subtle sweetness from the honey, floral notes of gorse, spice from cassia bark, and citrus, nutty and grassy notes. It is a charming, rounded, complex and smooth gin that is a real delight and opens up vibrantly in a G&T. Garnish: Bay Leaf or Lemon Zest. - Paul Jackson, 2018

Meet the Maker
"The vision from the start has been to build a different kind of distillery; one which has the lightest possible touch on the lands, but also benefits the community by preferentially fermenting and distilling surplus produce."
- Will Edge, Founder of Greensand Ridge Distillery
