Going against the grain
Chilgrove Spirits Bluewater Editon Gin

Chilgrove Bluewater Edition draws its inspiration from the rich history that exists between England and Australia, both in terms of the early explorers & settlers and also the subsequent maritime trade-routes. The botanicals which have been chosen all had their part to play in this story.

These are distilled with a 100% grape-alcohol base and natural mineral water sourced from the South Downs which surround the hamlet of Chilgrove in West Sussex.
