handcrafTed gins

There is no secret to creating amazing gin, just hard work dedication and passion. That being said there are certain things that make this Gin amazing.
First team Forged steep the core botanicals of juniper and coriander seed for a day to soften their tough outer skins before slowly heating them in the organic neutral grain spirit. The botanical oils are then carried in the vapour through the infusion basket that contains the more delicate botanicals. The vapour is condensed and collected at a sedate pace to allow the different flavour compounds to be isolated; this allows the portions of the run that are not considered pure enough to make the final product to be discarded. If that wasn’t enough they only use the “one shot” method, never do they dilute the gin with more plain spirit that hasn’t been distilled. This creates the purest gin that can be produced and is the envy of mainstream producers who could not hope to use this method due to the labour intensive processes and costs involved.
This is what team Forged do! They create amazing gin for you to drink regardless of the time and effort it takes, using only the finest organic and natural ingredients.

spiced orange

Sweet Orange flavours are perfectly balanced with our core botanicals but we introduce All Spice, Cloves, Ginger, Cinnamon, Nutmeg and Ginger to complement the brightness of the Orange.

Pair with a premium Mediterranean tonic. Garnish with a slice of fresh orange.

 

yorkshire strength

Yorkshire Strength is an incredibly smooth dry gin measuring in at 57% abv. Don’t be put off by the extra kick, the botanicals have been tailored specifically to mellow the extra strength. The addition of Lemon Balm and Elderflower create a calming effect on the palate. The bright citrus notes of additional orange peel help balance off the flavour profile whilst the additional botanical weight creates a luxurious mouthfeel.

Pair with a premium light tonic. Or perfect as part of a dirty Martini.

 

strawberry & cinnamon

 

Bursting with Strawberry and Cinnamon, this flavour sensation is sure to awaken new senses. The bright notes of the fruit are complemented by the heat of the cinnamon and both balance perfectly.

Pair with prosecco, lemonade or a premium light tonic.

 

Garnish with fresh strawberries and a cinnamon stick.

 

rhubarb & ginger

 

Yorkshire Rhubarb is grown across a small patch of West Yorkshire. This is the rhubarb triangle, a nine-square-mile area between Wakefield, Morley and Rothwell. Fuchsia-pink forced rhubarb is prized for its subtle flavour. Our heritage in the Rhubarb triangle makes for a special Gin. Rhubarb adds a tart yet sweet crisp edge whilst the ginger dances on the palate and creates lasting warmth. 

Pair with a premium ginger ale and garnish with a cinnamon stick.

 

passion fruit

 

Lovingly distilled in small batches, this Passionfruit Gin is bursting with exotic passion fruit and mango flavours; it is perfectly balanced with our core gin recipe to bring a true depth of flavour. It is rich, fruity and perfect as a dessert drink sipped over a cube of ice.

We put the star in a “Pornstar Gintini” cocktail, garnish with fresh pineapple and kiwi fruit.

 

sherbet lemon

 

Drinking our Sherbet Lemon gin is akin to eating your favourite childhood sweets whilst walking through a lemon grove. It is born from a base of our dry gin recipe tailored specifically to enhance the zesty yet sweet flavour profile.

Pairs perfectly with a premium tonic and is wonderful garnished with a slice of dehydrated lemon and lime.

 

The original

 

The Original gin is a real labour of love. Months have been spent perfecting the recipe and procedure for its creation. The Original gin is incredibly smooth and dry with a slightly spice forward hit on the palate. Grains of paradise, cardamom pods and cassia bark makes for an amazingly exotic gin that is full of flavour and richness.

Beautiful when paired with a premium tonic or as part of your favourite cocktail, garnish with a slice of cucumber or apple.

 

CHERRY BLOSSOM

Sweet lingering cherry flavours with a real gin kiss! The balance of botanicals in Cherry Blossom makes for a truly spectacular serve. The sweet cherry and crisp tartness lead but are quickly followed by buttery almonds leaving a lasting sweetness.

Pair with a premium lemonade or tonic and garnish with fresh raspberries.
