SEVEN SISTERS SPIRITS
We make our grape-based Seven Sisters Spirits, a Gin and a Vermouth, by fermenting and distilling the juice from the final pressing, that the French call the rebêche.
Inspired and named after the iconic Seven Sisters cliffs which mark the beginning of the South Downs in Sussex, chalk plays an integral part in the flavour-profiles, both from the chalk that the vines grow on to the chalk-filtered pure spring water drawn from a deep, ancient spring.
SEVEN SISTERS GIN.
Our Seven Sisters Gin, first released in 2016, is a classic hand-crafted London Dry Gin produced from a blend of grape spirit (30%) and grain spirit (70%). It is infused with nine of the finest traditional botanicals: Juniper, Coriander, Angelica, Orris, Liquorice, Lemon, Bitter Orange, Angelica seed and Hyssop.
Our Gin is distilled in a two-stage process, first using a 350 litre copper pot still to draw the richest flavours from the wine, leaving a grape spirit with only the brightest aromatics, rich in red berry and stone fruit with a hint of citrus. The addition of a neutral grain spirit blended with the botanicals is then distilled again producing a Gin rich in Juniper and citrus with the wine providing complex fruit aromas giving the spirit depth. Subtle floral and savoury notes from the Angelica seed and Hyssop tie the layers together.
Enjoy a “Sisters on Ice” or a “Sisters and Tonic”.
SEVEN SISTERS VERMOUTH.
Our Seven Sisters Vermouth is a fortified wine, made from our Pinot Gris and Pinot Blanc grapes. It is infused with a carefully-chosen selection of herbal botanicals including; artichoke, gentian, calamus root, wormwood, angelica and the zest of bitter orange, lemon and pink grapefruit. Unlike most Vermouths, this is a vintage blend, produced from grapes, all harvested from Rathfinny’s single Estate.
Enjoy as a “Sisters Vermouth and Tonic” or in a Sussex Martini, with Seven Sisters Gin.
