Surrey-based premium gin brand Silent Pool has announced the launch of its new Rare Citrus Gin, crafted from rare citrus varieties from around the world.
The gin features fruits such as Hirado Buntan, Natsu Dai Dai, Buddha’s Hand and Green Seville Orange, which are sourced from world-renowned citrus collectors on the Alentejo coast in Portugal, who grow in excess of 300 citrus varieties.
Free from artificial flavourings, the resulting spirit is “zesty and vibrant”. Floral citrus and exotic fruit aromas lead into “sweet notes of honey and melon, with juniper marrying the flavours together”.
Mirroring the same style as Silent Pool’s core gin but now in a burnt orange shade, the bottle wrap details the different botanicals and citrus fruits used.
Ian McCulloch, co-founder of Silent Pool Gin, said: “At the beginning of 2020, we predicted that citrus gins would be a trend within the premium drinks category and we’re delighted to introduce our Rare Citrus Gin to the market and to the Silent Pool family.
“This is not a flavoured gin, but rather a masterfully blended spirit that is both aromatic and unique in taste.”
