The Directors Cut Gin
It can be a bit of a whirlwind looking up the botanicals in your favourite gins, they can often feel unknown, or inaccessible, or all floating around there together too hard to tell apart. Here however, there’s something so familiar, so nostalgic…why is that? Well, it’s the smell of your own backyard. Kikuyu grass is everywhere and it’s sweet, summertime smell was the inspiration for the Antagonist Spirits gins; they wanted the smell of fun backyard summers to come belting from the grass. Fresh cut, hand harvested kikuyu grass (Pennisetum clandestinum) between 10-17cms are put to the production line after approx 5 hours of being picked stem by stem, literally stem by stem. Juniper, coriander seed, orris, angelica and sweet orange. Boozy, buttery, brilliant.
