  • Cotswold Distillery pay homage to the “local” bard William Shakespeare on the 400th anniversary of his death with this new <b>gin</b>. &nbsp;Shakespeare was known to fancy his ale and wine but in his days gin was made mainly in Holland and called Genever. &nbsp;It came to the UK in the mid-17th century with the return of British soldiers who learned about “Dutch Courage” during the Thirty Years’ War. &nbsp;Gin back then was made mainly with malt spirit which was redistilled and flavoured with botanicals, primarily juniper (Genever in Dutch, hence the name). Cotswold Distillery redistill their malt whisky spirit in a bespoke Holstein pot still, combining it with juniper, coriander, cassia, nutmeg, orange peel and a few other secret botanicals. &nbsp;It is then aged in specially toasted and recharred wine casks, in which it mellows and develops wonderful notes of wood and fruit. &nbsp;Best served neat or over ice, it’s also a tasty treat with ginger beer or your favourite mixer.
