*We’re going to be out of stock of our Sussex Dry Gin for at least a few weeks. Our move to Worthing has almost completed now, but the wheels of licensing move slowly & we clearly didn’t make enough for the interim! You can place pre-orders now for the first batch made at The Chalk House (coming soon!).*
This is a bold Gin, full of flavour, a little less dry than most with a rich mouth-feel. Distilled in a single-shot from a premium grain spirit base infused with both traditional and locally grown ingredients. Picked, blended and bottled by hand to best capture the taste of the seasons, Sussex by the Sea and the South Downs. Looking for a gin to gift? Our Great Taste award-winning Sussex Dry Gin is the ideal gift for a gin lover as it’s both classical and approachable, yet delightfully different.
Meticulously made in small batches of ca. 170 bottles which are allowed to mature and develop in stainless steel tanks for several weeks to ensure peak quality prior to bottling. As with all our spirits, the bottles are individually numbered with batch & bottle number. The process used to create the mezzo bianco glass for our Sussex Dry Gin, includes a high proportion of recycled glass material, resulting in a degree of natural variation in the colour & finish. This means less wasted energy and resources, so you can drink more sustainably.
Juniper, Coriander, Cassia, Cardamom, Fennel, Angelica, Lemon Balm & Lemon Verbena.
Something for the weekend? For a Friday night Gin and Tonic, serve over plenty of ice with 1-2 parts quality tonic (we prefer Fever-Tree Mediterranean). Garnish as you see fit (something ‘citrus and herbal’ is a good start, like fresh rosemary and sweet orange or ruby grapefruit), relax and savour. Whether for a gift or one’s own pleasure, this is a fantastic gin for the traditional gin lover. The prominence of juniper and citrus evoke the quintessential character of London Dry Gin, precisely why we love our Sussex version in so many classic cocktails. Whether you are a stalwart fan of Gin and Tonic or prefer a Negroni or a Martini, you will not be disappointed. This is a true bartender’s gin that is versatile enough to sip or mix and bold enough to bring something special to your favourite serve. Do you dare to share? If you turn up to a party with a bottle of Slake’s finest Sussex Dry Gin, you are bound to make some friends!
