This apple distillate serves as the basis for the distillation of the other botanicals used in William Chase gin such as juniper, coriander, angelica, licorice, lily, orange and lemon peel. This distillation is done in a small alembic (affectionately called "Gina") and bottled in 48% ABV. In the nose has a strong juniper presence, complemented by citrus. On the palate, the juniper dominates once again, before taking on a more citrusy flavor, with coriander, angelica and licorice all contributing to a spicy and long finish. The apple base is also noticeable when tasted pure. A very balanced gin that manages to have a personality of its own.
