The Beast 66.6% abv. 50cl
Created to celebrate the folklore of the Beast of Exmoor, also known as the Exmoor Beast, said to be a phantom cat that roams the moors and fields of Exmoor in Devon and Somerset.
Our gin incorporates Exmoor Ales’ dark porter ‘Exmoor Beast’, blood orange, szechuan peppercorns, sea buckthorn, wolfberry, cocoa nibs and of course, coriander and juniper.
The Beast opens with fresh crisp Juniper and spicy coriander developing into a tangy citrus sensation of blood orange, sea buckthorn and szechuan peppercorns. The finish is subtle hints of wolfberry and Exmoor Beast dark porter, all wrapped in the velvety smooth mouth feel of cocoa.
Produced at 66.6% abv. it has been slow distilled to capture more of the essential oils from the botanicals, so when mixed with a premium tonic it releases essential oils delivering more flavour and producing cloudy appearance.
