Introducing HM Woodcutter Gin

HM Woodcutter gin has a distinct flavour that defies the ordinary. In this blog we will delve into the origins of the Woodcutter, learn what gives it’s distinctive flavour profile and more.

The origin story

The recipe for the HM Woodcutter gin was crafted in the early days of HM Gin and is the second HM Gin recipe head distiller Gav perfected. When I asked him the story behind how the Woodcutter’s unique flavour profile came to be, he explained he was wanting to create a citrus gin using lemons and limes. After distillation the idea came to him to experiment with oak spirals just to see how the flavour may change. That experimentation led to the Woodcutter gin’s signature flavour that everyone has come to know and love.

The Woodcutter's botanicals

Juniper berries, coriander seeds, coconut sugar, lemon myrtle, fresh lemons and limes. Medium toasted French oak spirals are immersed in the gin distillate, see image for what the spirals look like.
