Famous for his delectable Willabrand Glace Figs, in 2016, Willa Wauchope found himself with a surplus of fig syrup. At a loss of what to do with the aromatic by product, he turned to the talented distillers at Applewood. The organically farmed figs are gently poached and the resulting syrup is then slowly added to the gin base. Wauchope has since purchased two stills with the intention of creating his own spirits in the future.
Bright gold. Opens with a bouquet of fresh figs and traditional botanicals. Brief air contact accents hints of lavender, lemon verbena and earthy juniper while the fruit retreats. Pure and creamy with semi-sweet fig flavours dominating, finishing with delicate peel / herbal freshness. Skillfully balanced. Try it with a wedge of lime. 29% Alc./Vol.
