Rhubarb: Our gin is manufactured right here in Wakefield; so we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to create a gin that utilised the highly prized forced rhubarb grown locally to us. The rhubarb triangle is a nine square-mile area between Wakefield, Morley and Rothwell. The fuschia-pink rhubarb from this area is prized across the UK for it’s soft texture and sweet flavour. Our heritage in the Rhubarb triangle is important to us here at Forged, and the gin we produce with this high-quality produce is a really special drink. The rhubarb adds sweetness with a slight tart edge, balanced perfectly with a hint of ginger that dances on the palate and creates lasting warmth.
Pair with a premium ginger ale and freshly ground black pepper.
No Secret: There is no secret to creating amazing gin, just hard work dedication and passion. That being said there are certain things that make this Gin amazing.
First team Forged steep the core botanicals of juniper and coriander seed for a day to soften their tough outer skins before slowly heating them in the organic neutral grain spirit. The botanical oils are then carried in the vapour through the infusion basket that contains the more delicate botanicals. The vapour is condensed and collected at a sedate pace to allow the different flavour compounds to be isolated; this allows the portions of the run that are not considered pure enough to make the final product to be discarded. If that wasn’t enough they only use the “one shot” method, never do they dilute the gin with more plain spirit that hasn’t been distilled. This creates the purest gin that can be produced and is the envy of mainstream producers who could not hope to use this method due to the labour intensive processes and costs involved.
This is what team Forged do! They create amazing gin for you to drink regardless of the time and effort it takes, using only the finest organic and natural ingredients.
