The Hyke Gin Very Special from UK-based Foxhole Spirits will offer consumers a more sustainable option to try out that makes use of an ingredient that would otherwise be discarded. Crafted using pressed wine grapes, the gin is made with 19 botanicals that add further flavor complexity that is unlike anything out there. The gin is finished with a drop of brandy to give it an unexpected flavor accent.
Foxhole Spirits Founder James Oag-Cooper spoke on the new Hyke Gin Very Special saying, "We took our English wine grape spirit and started to create something completely new with it. We realised that this raw material is so incredible, and has so much texture and flavour. With all of our expertise over the last few years, [we thought] that we could make something that other people will think is even better.”
