Hooting Owl West Yorkshire Gin
Hooting Owl West Yorkshire Gin is a small batch London Dry Gin hand crafted at the foot of the Yorkshire Wolds.
This small batch artisan distillery uses traditional copper stills to produce its London Dry Gins.
The Signature Gin has 16 botanicals that give it its unique flavour, and the handcrafting gives it a purity and smoothness that is both mellow and full of flavour. While the Hooting Owl West Yorkshire Gin uses a couple of extra botanicals that reflect the culture and biodiversity of the county.
Inspired by the home town of their distiller (Bradford), this is a spicy gin containing the traditional curry spices of cardamom, turmeric and cumin, these are sweetened by the liquorice (Pontefract Cakes) and cassia bark.
The making of Hooting Owl West Yorkshire Gin
First of all the botanicals are steeped in a neutral spirit for 12 hours, this releases the oils which contain the flavour.
Most noteworthy, unlike other distillers the gin is then cut 10 times during the distillation process. As a result an exceptionally smooth gin is created with a unique character.
