This is a double pack of 500ml bottles of Sky Wave Signature London Dry Gin and the New Liberation Edition Gin, born of Lockdown.
The first bottle is their signature product, the fabulously smooth Sky Wave London Dry Gin. This gin was crowned The World’s Best Contemporary London Dry Gin at the 2020 World Gin Awards, amongst many other awards.
The second bottle is Sky Wave’s brand new Liberation Edition London Dry Gin. There is a wonderful story around the creation of this gin – born of love, inspired by nature. It was created by Sky Wave’s Master Distiller Andrew who, when he asked his wife, Rachel, how she might like to mark a significant birthday, was asked ‘to make me the most wonderful gin.’ He set about creating an exceptional spirit made with all his love for her.
Then Lockdown struck, and the world was turned upside down. But amongst the fear and the pain, a change became evident. People were calmer, kinder, less rushed. People were thoughtful of each other again, and communities were reborn. We started to enjoy the quiet. We read, we talked, we spent real time with our families.
And we started to notice nature as it grew and flourished through the Spring and into the Summer, oblivious of human difficulty. Hedgerows flourished, meadows blossomed, birds sang – and we heard them! As we spent the time to develop our gin we drew inspiration from these changes, and from the nature all around us which many of us had never taken the time to enjoy before.
And as we emerge from the strangest of times it feels like a form of liberation. A liberation with a determination never to go back to exactly how it was; to take the best of what we have learnt and leave the worst behind. This is why we called our gin ‘Liberation’. We made it through, together, but we’ll never forget. Born of Love, Inspired by Nature.
Sky Wave Liberation London Dry Gin is a smooth, soft, perfectly balanced gin at 42%ABV, created from 9 botanicals which reflect the nature growing around us in Lockdown, including raspberries and lemon verbena. It comes in the same iconic, chunky, Sky Wave Gin 500ml bottle and has the distiller’s name and taste notes handwritten on the back label.
Both bottles are the 500ml size, and have a back label with the Sky Wave Gin story, tasting notes, and with the distiller’s name handwritten.
