Based in the heart of the Cotswolds, The Burford Distilling Company (BDC) (www.burforddistilling.com) has been created by a team of hospitality professionals, looking to produce fantastic spirits reflecting the historical significance of Burford town.
The BDC’s Managing Director, Andy Chapman said “We saw an opportunity to create a gin targeted at race goers”. The label features many racing silks, which may look familiar but are all exclusive to Racing Gin.
Established in Autumn 2020, the BDC’s premier offering is Racing Gin which was inspired by their love of horse racing and the close connections with Burford town and the surrounding areas. This citrus and herbaceous contemporary gin is enhanced with meadowsweet, a delicate herb, favoured by our equine friends and gives this London dry a unique, fresh flavour.
This is the first off the starting line for The Burford Distilling Co. so look out for more to come from this new team. To order visit www.burforddistilling.com
Racing Gin Very lucky to get hold of this gin from the very first batch – delivered just days before Christmas. It’s such a fresh, crisp taste, with notes of citrus 🍊 that linger on your taste buds – I can’t wait for the summer to sip this in the garden. Meanwhile, I highly recommend also having neat over ice – not many gins you can do this with but this it is perfect 👌. Longer serve I’ve tried with all tonics now and my favourite is with the Merchants Heart Pink Peppercorn as the bitter pepper compliments the sweetness. A complex yet classic gin that I know will be a favourite on my shelf.
