The Wrecking Coast Distillery, based in Tintagel, Cornwall, offers a unique 'Cornish Clotted Cream Gin,' that's also made with spring water from the area and a carefully selected range of botanicals.
It's reported that the gin is created with the use of "a hand-blown glass vacuum still, the iStill, which distills neutral spirit and fresh clotted cream, resulting in a clear gin" that maintains the rich flavor of the cream. Ensuring that these various flavors were featured in the end product was a difficult feat for the manufacturers to achieve, as even a slight rise in temperature can cause the cream to separate and the notes to change.
The Wrecking Coast Distillery's Cornish Clotted Cream Gin comes packaged in a minimalist bottle, which features an elegant black and white label on the front, gold branding, and a wooden cap.
