Fishers Smoked Gin 44% 50cl
Founded in 2016 - although their own distillery didn't open until 2020 - Fishers Gin was created by local lad Andrew Heald as a spiritual representation of the coastal town of Aldeburgh, 45 minutes from Ipswich on the Suffolk coast.
Pinney's of Orford is one of the most highly regarded smokehouses in the England, and Aldborough-based Fishers partnered with them to smoke a number of botanicals before creating one of the single most unusual gins I have ever encountered.
Coastal botanicals found on the Suffolk coast such as Sea Purslane, Rock Samphire and Bog Myrtle already have distinct notes of the sea, to which the smoking process adds even more intensity.
On the nose there's a distinct note of smoked kippers - it's really quite marine-like but there's an underlying sweetness too. The palate has more of a peppery burst, with the smoke rolling through. For drinkers of peated whisky - particularly the likes of Bowmore, Kilchoman and Talisker, this is absolutey a gin for you. It's a tricky one for long drinks however - tonics struggle, but ginger ale is a winner here. And it makes one of the most memorable Manhattans you will have have, especially with a more intense rosso Vermouth such as Azaline!
