Thatchers launches its first apple gin

18 October, 2016

Thatchers has ventured into spirits for the first time by introducing its first apple gin.

Thatchers Orchard Cut is made using cider from Thatchers’ Katy apples. The gin is then distilled by the English Spirit Distillery, using a selection of botanicals, as well as fresh apple for flavour.

The drink is described as being citrusy and refreshing, with floral and apple notes. Botanicals include juniper, local Somerset lavender from Lavender & Co, coriander, macadamia nut, buttercup, Seville orange, lemon and lime.

Martin Thatcher, fourth generation cidermaker said: “By using cider from our own Katy apples, this fantastic gin is very much at home in our family. With people looking for individuality and character in their gin just as they do in their cider, this new offer once again demonstrates the brilliance and versatility of apples.” 

The gin, which is priced at £33.99 for a 70cl bottle, has a recommended serve called an Orchard Cut and Thatchers Haze cocktail, which is one part gin topped with Thatchers Haze, decorated with mint, cucumber and a slice of red apple.
