Warner Edwards is proud to welcome the launch of our Limited Edition 'Melissa' Lemon Balm Gin, the first within our brand new Botanical Garden range, available to order now.
As a pioneer of great British craft at its best, our vision for the Botanical Garden was born in late summer 2015. Founder Tom Warner’s late mother Adéle was a keen gardener and a wonderful cook who’s garden was not only full of beautiful flowers but also aromatic herbs which she used in her cooking. Tom and Head Distiller Oli realised there were lots of plants within the garden they could distil and extract flavour and aroma from, so they set to work creating a flavour library and began to upscale the garden next to the distillery into a fully fledged Botanical Garden.
The fruits of this labour now sees the creation of the Botanical Garden limited edition range of gins, which will use various herbaceous plants from the garden, lovingly distilled with pure spring water from the Farm, extracting the flavour and aroma into a selection of beautifully balanced gins.
Lemon Balm is a member of the mint family, also known by its Latin name Melissa officinalis. The gin is a herbaceous explosion on the pallet full, of fresh green notes; a robust juniper core is enveloped by a beautiful citrus and mint layer that makes this gin fresh and distinctive with a very delicate sweetness.
Grow your own garnish...
Each bottle will have a seed packet for people to grow their own lemon balm and start their own botanical gardens at home and use as a garnish for their gin.
