Crab Apple and Royal Ginger Gin takes its inspiration from history.
In the 9th Century, ginger was a luxury experience, almost exclusively by the Royal Courts and was most likely imported from the Mediterranean region by spice merchants. Alfred the Great would have certainly enjoyed a sumptuous combination of fresh fruits, enriched with exotic spices such as ginger.
Whilst soldiers from both the Anglo-Saxon and invading Viking armies would have foraged for wild apples. Which were known as ‘crabbe’ – as they traversed the Kingdoms of England.
