Lemon balm used in first of limited-edition garden gins


Northamptonshire distiller Warner Edwards has created a new limited-edition gin using the British garden herb, lemon balm.

It is the first of the Botanical Garden limited edition range which will use various herbaceous plants from Warner Edwards’ newly created garden. Lemon balm is a member of the mint family, also known as Melissa Officinalis.

At 43% ABV, Warner Edwards Melissa Gin is described as “an herbaceous explosion on the palate full, of fresh green notes. The robust juniper core is enveloped by a beautiful citrus and mint layer that makes this gin fresh and distinctive with a very delicate sweetness.”

The new gin was inspired by Warner Edwards co-founder Tom Warner’s late mother Adèle, who was a keen gardener and used the aromatic herbs in her cooking. Each bottle will be sold with a seed packet for people to start their own herb garden and grow their very own lemon balm – perfect to use as a garnish.
