WELCOME TO THE HACKNEY DISTILLERY,
LOCATED IN THE HEART OF THE
BEAUTIFUL COASTAL CAROLINA REGION ,
THE HOME OF 1000 PIERS GIN
1000 PIERS GIN
1000 Piers Gin is an unashamedly modern style London Dry Gin. It is distilled with Juniper and a blend of 21 other botanicals including orange, grapefruit, lemongrass, kaffir lime, ginger, blueberries and star anise to name a few. A recipe it took us three years to develop and optimise.
Unlike other gins many of the botanicals we use are
fresh not dried and we use more botanicals than most other gins packing as much flavor punch as possible into each bottle.
The London Dry denomination means that we fully respect the craft of distillation so what's in the bottle is what comes off the still, meaning no flavors are added after the fact. We also use a carefully considered combination of distillation methods to ensure we extract the very best flavors from of our botanicals.
We are truly the taste of the Coastal Carolina Region sourcing as many of our botanicals as possible from local farms.
SOME OF OUR BOTANICALS
The Highest Quality Ingredients
At the Hackney Distillery we believe firmly in the adage that the quality of what you get out is a direct result of the quality of what you put in. We therefore use only the finest ingredients we can source. Unlike most gins many of the botanicals we use are fresh, including all our citrus peel (we love peeling oranges and grapefruit!!), lemongrass, root ginger, galangal, kaffir lime and blueberries. We use fresh peels because they contain more essential oil. We are currently working with local farms to try and source as much of our fresh botanicals as locally as possible.
Handcrafted With Loving Care
Each part of our process has been carefully considered to deliver the cleanest and most vibrant flavors from our botanicals. Depending on the botanical we either macerate it in the alcohol before distilling or put in our gin basket where the alcohol vapor stream strips out the essential oils.
We use a much higher volume of botanicals than most premium gins which delivers a higher percentage of essential oils. This along with quality of our ingredients is the reason our gin is so flavor rich. You can actually see how much flavor is in our gin as when you add tonic our gin goes from clear to cloudy as the essential oils start to come out of solution.
Nose: Initial waves of wonderful fresh citrus followed by floral notes and a hint of spice and pepper
Palate: Super interesting flavour profile that slowly reveals itself it as the smooth almost creamy liquor passes over the tongue. At the front end you get a wonderful complex hit of citrus working in perfect tandem with the clean piney notes of the juniper featuring sweet notes of orange, lime, grapefruit and lemongrass followed by a little heat and a hint of pepper with the ginger, galangal, cubeb and black pepper taking centre stage
Finish: The finish is smooth and clean with subtle notes of anise and more citrus.
Delicious served straight-up or over ice. 1000 Piers Gin also makes a wonderful zesty martini. Shake 2oz of 1000 Piers gin with plenty of ice and pour into a ice cold glass with splash of a good quality dry white vermouth and finish with an orange twist.
For a spectacular G@T simply pour 2oz of 1000 Piers over plenty of ice and add a good splash of a quality tonic like Fever Tree Premium Indian Tonic. Garnish with slice of orange and give it a stir. Delicious!!
