70cl * 42% ABV * Ripley, Surrey
Launched by seasoned Head Distiller Simon Sherlock (formerly of Silent Pool), Distillers of Surrey is a small batch, artisanal distillery in Ripley. Their award-winning Aromatic gin only uses the finest British-sourced ingredients, including olive, rosemary and bay and even Cornish tea leaf from the country's first plantation. Herbaceous and moreish, it strikes a fine balance between oily juniper and refreshing menthol. Served over plenty of ice and topped up with a premium tonic, this makes for a super, local G&T.
