The Teasmith Original Gin is the first Scottish gin to use tea as the primary botanical.
Distilled with hand-picked and hand-rolled black loose leaf Ceylon tea sourced from the Amba Estate, Sri Lanka. Other carefully selected botanicals include juniper, coriander, grains of paradise and orange peel. The botanicals are distilled twice in copper alembic stills to produce this distinct, crisp gin.
It is Aberdeenshire's largely unknown rich historical links to the tea-trade that influenced Teasmith's use of hand-picked Ceylon Tea.
James Taylor, a young man from Auchenblae in the North East of Scotland, was known as the 'Father of Ceylon Tea' as he planted the very first tea plantation in Sri Lanka over 150 years ago.
