Downton Distillery – Explorer’s Gin


Vendor: Downton Distillery

Explorer’s Gin is a handmade, small batch Premium Contemporary London Dry Gin created using the one-shot method. We macerate fifteen botanicals, then vapour infuse our fresh botanicals to create a spirit of distinction. Being a London dry gin means nothing else is added to Explorer’s Gin post distillation except the spring water which filters down from the New Forest and the surrounding Downs.


Nose: Citrus and floral fragrances with warming undertones of pepper with red cedar providing the backbone.

Palate: Juniper provide the initial notes, but this gives way to the bright fresh citrus which rolls on your tongue. Verbena provides a mellow creaminess, with the peppers providing the warmth at the back of the mouth. Western red cedar brings back those memories of being in a pine wood in the summer. As the szechuan pepper oil oxidises on your tongue it causes the mouth to start cool providing the subtle mint note. This then enhance the tail notes of fennel seed and liquorice providing the final flourish that lingers in the mouth.

Finish: Close your eyes and let your palate explore the subtle flavours, as Explorer’s Gin enriches your senses. Being a London dry it will leave you wanting more.


The inspiration for this gin comes from the ‘Golden Age of Exploration’ during which European ships travelled around the world discovering both new continents and trading routes.
