ABOUT YORK GIN ROMAN FRUIT
A juniper-led, full-strength (42.5%) dry gin with no added sugar, infused with fruits and flowers associated with Ancient Rome - including strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, apples and hibiscus.
The Yorkshire-made fruit infusion sits in our gold award-winning London Dry gin for over two weeks to develop a rich red imperial hue and a complex flavour.
The Great Taste Awards 2019 described it as 'mouthwatering'. It has won several international awards including a bronze medal at the prestigious San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2019.
It is one of the few gins in the world with its own Latin motto (checked for us by the UK's most famous Roman expert, Dame Professor Mary Beard):
‘Veni, vidi, bibi’- ‘I came, I saw, I drank.’
‘An example of a brand who have got it spot on and delivered it to stunning effect. This is a must have for any gin collection!’ - The Gin Shelf
'It might be deep red in colour but tastes like gin first and foremost. The infusion has added layers to the underlying gin and given it huge complexity, but the juniper is clear. It's dry as a bone too - making it perfect to use with tonic.'
- Olivier Ward, Editor, Spirits Beacon
'The aroma is fruity and floral with a sweet fruity taste to match. This is another contemporary gin that will please those who like their gin juniper-lite. I served it with a Mediterranean tonic, lemon zest twist and fresh raspberry.’ - For The Love of Gin
