Our Raspberry Ghost is a delicious Eau de Vie that captures the aroma of ripe Kentish raspberries. Drunk as a gin with tonic, the delicate raspberry flavour bursts onto the palate and endures long into the finish.
Our Raspberry Ghost captures the flavour of delicious Kentish raspberries at the peak of their aromatic ripeness.
It's not viable to ferment raspberries themselves, as we do for our apple spirits, as they don't contain enough sugar. So instead we infuse the berries in 100% wheat spirit and then distill the lot in our beautiful copper pot still. We call it a Ghost in homage to the German name for this technique, Geist.
The berries in this drink, too imperfect for supermarkets, were collected from a local fruit farmer and saved for your drinking pleasure. All distilled with 100% renewable energy, this really is a drink that makes a difference. Read about how we made the spirit here.
Tasting Notes: This is a true Eau de Vie, not a raspberry liqueur, so don't expect a sickly sweet and bright red assault on the taste buds!
On the nose is a delicate raspberry aroma, more akin to an autumn raspberry on a misty morning then a bright summer berry. The first taste is much like a super premium smooth and creamy vodka, but as you swirl the spirit in your mouth the raspberry flavour bursts onto the palate and endures long into the finish.
Serving Suggestions: Drunk neat the Raspberry flavour can be quite elusive at first; the spirit really comes alive with the addition of some sweetness and sharpness. So drinking as a long drink with tonic (try Fever Tree Mediterranean Tonic) really enhances the spirit. Garnish with a slice of lemon and fresh mint.
