Dimpsey is Old Somerset for the light before dusk - the time in the evening when the kids are in bed and the men tinker in the Still Shed. It’s also the perfect time to drink our gin!
Still Shed's original gin is their first and currently most awarded member of the family, winning Gold at both the Taste of the West Awards 2022 and The Global Gin Masters 2022.
The botanicals: juniper, coriander seed, orris root, cinnamon, mandarin and white grapefruit peel.
On the nose: lots of citrus notes with the mandarin and grapefruit working wonderfully together. There’s a subtle note of cinnamon too.
To taste neat: citrus fruit stands out at the fore along with juniper. Subtle spice warms the mouth and the finish is dry with a lingering flavour of citrus and cinnamon.
With a premium tonic and ice, the gin explodes with vibrant flavour with the citrus standing out well. We recommend adding a slice of grapefruit to lift the citrus even more.
Hand crafted in very small batches of 60 bottles, filled, labelled and numbered by hand.
