THE BLUE HOUR
We’re inspired by the blue hour – the most poignant time of day - the period of twilight when the sun is so far below the horizon that the light's blue wavelengths dominate. It’s a time of magic and possibility, sitting between day and night, between dreams and reality. Everything we do is magical, natural, ethical and sustainable.
THE BLUE HOUR GIN
"You'd learn more about the world by lying on the couch and drinking gin than by watching the news." Garrison Keillor
The Blue Hour produces hand-made, small batch artisan gin taking wild fruit and transforming it into something exquisite and unique.
Bullaces are a very old fruit with a flavour quite distinct from that of damsons and sloes. We use a top quality 37.5% London Dry Gin as a base adding wild bullaces and sugar and then maturing it for a minimum of 3 months before bottling. The result is a beautiful red gin with the flavours of almonds, cherries and plums.
HOW TO ENJOY...
… ON ITS OWN
...just pour a generous measure, sit back and relax
“I’ve tried Buddhism, Scientology, Numerology, Transcendental Meditation, Qabbala, t’ai chi and Deepak Chopra but I find straight gin works best.” Phyllis Diller
WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY
“The gin is absolutely fabulous, fruity with subtle tones of almond, my perfect new tipple. I’ll need a biggish bottle for me and several more as presents”
Mrs D, Buckinghamshire
We love gin and we love this gin in particular as it is so unusual and delicious. Lovely with tonic on a warm afternoon, and great on its own on a winter's evening"
The Gin Drinkers of Reading
"This gin is wonderful and I am so pleased it is now available commercially - it will be my "go to" present for family and friends this Christmas (and for myself of course)."
