Launched in September 2015 and named after the basket traditionally used to sow seeds, Seedlip is a blend of six non-alcoholic botanical distillates made from two barks, two spices and two citrus peels. Seedlip does not contain alcohol or sugar.
Five of the botanicals: American oak, Guatemalan cardamom, Jamaican allspice berries, Bahamian Cascarilla bark and Turkish grapefruit are individually distilled in a copper still with water and a small amount of alcohol at a vinegar distillery in Germany. The sixth ingredient, lemon peel, is a steam-extracted essence known as a 'hydrolat' made in a stainless steel still at source in Argentina.

Review and Tasting


Sampled on 29/10/2015

Appearance:

Crystal clear.

Aroma:

Pungent cardamom dominates with nutmeg, cola-like aromas, woody spice and faint citrus zest.

Taste:

Bone dry and faintly bitter with a thin mouthfeel. Pervasive cardamom with clove and lemon zest. Subtle notes of nutmeg and cinnamon.

Aftertaste:

Surprisingly long finish with cardamom and clove.

Overall:

My love of alcohol may make me bias and obviously this would be so much better with some ethanol. However, Seedlip and tonic (with a lot less than I'd pour if gin) is surprisingly palatable when holding the car keys.
