Muddy says: All hail, Exeter Gin! Is this what the Romans drank when they came to the West Country? If what we’ve tasted is anything to go by, they would, if they could! Saluti!
It came, it saw, it conquered! A celebration of the city’s Roman heritage, this premium hand-crafted gin owes its spicy but smooth flavours to traditional Mediterranean herbs as brought to the city by the Second Augustan Legion in 55AD, including coriander, basil and fourteen other botanicals from the four corners of the Roman world. Enjoy it with a splash of Luscombe tonic, citrus flavours and a sprig of tarragon.
Victorious in the Food & Drink Devon Awards, and winner of a Silver Award at Taste Of The West 2018, it now has reinforcements in the shape of another pesky Devon invader, Ivaar the Boneless, a 57% navy strength gin. An army may march on its stomach, but a gal chills on a gin.
This family-run Teignmouth distillery also make the popular Granny Garbutt’s, inspired by their gin-loving granny, who else?! Bottoms up!
