Crag & Tail is a laidback gin for those seeking a versatile spirit that effortlessly pairs with your go-to mixer or cocktail of choice, just remember that ice!
Created by the two guys behind the premium drinks distribution company, Huffman's (Ramone and Gregor). C&T is the end product to a journey that's taken us through a voyage of gins that runs into the hundreds.
Confident on the flavour profile we were after with our own twist, the subtle addition of watermelon, we enlisted the assistance of a local distiller based in Angus where we are from to bring it to life.
Geared up for endless recipe tweaks, we couldn't quite believe it when we all looked at each other and knew we'd hit the mark after just one distillation and 3 ABV variations...
The result? A good, solid, clean, classic gin. Just what we were after.
Name: Named after hilly formations prevalent in Scotland.
Example: Edinburgh Castle - The crag is the rough vertical rock face and the tail is what makes the royal mile (caused by shifting glaciers) Even closer to home for us is Dundee's Law Hill. We wanted to give a subtle nod to Scotland seeing as it is distilled and bottled in our motherland - in Angus to be precise, where we are from!
Type: London Dry Gin - All natural ingredients and nothing added after distillation.
Kaffir Lime Leaf
Juniper, of course.
Taste: Well rounded and balanced, citrus immediately present, with the spice building throughout but nothing overpowering. The finish is clean and refreshing. Pair it up with your favourite tonic ice cold, and garnish with a wedge of zesty lime.
Packaging: Embossed copper foiling | High grade paper label - Fasson Rustique Blanc FSC | Rich dark wood synthetic cork | Handwritten batch and bottle numbers.
Perfect Serve: At the end of the day have your gin how you like it, spicy, use chilli, floral, maybe some rose petals. We like to take away all the frills and keep it classic, some quality tonic water and 2 wedges of lime.
