Chapel Down is one of the leading winemakers in the UK, making still wines, sparkling wines, ciders, and beers. This award-winning company, based out of Kent, extended its reach into the spirits world by releasing its own special gin and vodka in November 2017. Chapel Down Pinot Noir Gin, released in 2019, has come to join its siblings, the second exquisite gin to be released by the company.
Much more than a pink gin, Chapel Down Pinot Noir Gin uses skins from Pinot Noir grapes that were previously pressed to make sparkling wine. These are then mixed with an English wheat spirit before juniper, coriander, dried strawberries, dried raspberries, lemon, lime, rosebuds, rosehips, angelica, and grains of paradise are added, all of which are flavours that pair well with Pinot Noir. The resulting gin is lightly pink and juniper-forward with the perfect touch of citrus to round out the flavour.
This aromatic gin comes in a gorgeous bottle. The top resembles a classic wine bottle while the bottom is eye-catching cut glass that allows the perfect pink colouring to shine through. It is perfect to enjoy in lemonade or with tonic where the lovely berried notes will shine. Garnish any mixed drink with fresh berries to highlight the pink side of this wonderful spirit.
Description of Chapel Down Pinot Noir Gin
Chapel Down Pinot Noir Gin
- Colour: Translucent pale pink.
- Aroma: A delicate fruit aroma showing lots of ripe red berries, citrus, and a bit of pine and herbs.
- Taste: While the scent is more fruity, the taste leads with juniper while luscious raspberry, grape, and red currant flavours follow closely behind. The taste is balanced with no overpowering sweetness nor acidity. The finish is long and lingering with a memorable note of grapefruit zest. The sophisticated wine flavour makes this gin particularly pleasant neat or with a splash of tonic water. However, the flavour is subtle enough to enjoy in a variety of gin-based cocktails.

PRODUCTION DETAILS: This special gin was created using distilled skins from Pinot Noir grapes grown and harvested by Chapel Down. The skins are then blended with a spirit made from English wheat to create a subtly-flavoured gin that is reminiscent of a Pinot Noir.
