East Coast Distillery are small but perfectly formed and located just a short walk from the estuary in Landermere, near Thorpe-le-Soken, Frinton on the North Essex Coast.
Their premium range of small batch, hand crafted gins are all distilled on site and they launched in 2020 with a wonderfully smooth Essex Dry Gin, made using locally sourced and foraged coastal botanicals.
Late last year they extended their range to include a fascinating Elder Pear Dry Gin. Distilled seasonally, this gin uses locally grown pears, roasted to release their sweetness, alongside local honey, ginger, foraged Elderflowers and Alexanders, a coastal plant that adds a slight peppery note to the spirit.
Marry this gin with any premium tonic to release the mellow pear and floral elderflower notes with a warming sweetness to finish.
Their premium gins are made in the classic London Dry style with no artificial colouring, flavouring or sweeteners added at any point.
If you fancy finding out more about this local Distillery and trying some of their gins, maybe even being a guinea pig for future products, why not book onto one of their tours?
Tours take place at 10am 12pm and 1pm every Saturday and are a great way to see how the gin is made, what creates the flavour and meet ‘Monty’ their still.
