Hustle Gin is distilled with 7 botanicals: juniper, cardamom, coriander, orris root, lemon peel, basil, and fresh Comice pears sourced from a farm on the edge on the Cotswolds in Gloucestershire.
The mother and daughter team, Philippa Symes and Laura Osborne, behind this gin (which launched in November 2017) say “Hustle Gin is a contemporary premium dry gin for those who dare greatly”. They seek to inspire others to “Hustle hard, but stay humble”. Their gin is produced in small batches of just 100 bottles locally to them at Union Distillers in Market Harborough.
Review and Tasting
Sampled on 29/03/2018
Attractive nose with fruity piney juniper and nuttiness lifted by fragrant cut grass, pear and floral aromas.
Piney juniper is softened by sweet nuttiness, ripe pear and an attractive creamy mouthfeel. Cardamom and black pepper spicy notes are light but assertive.
Long juniper finish with lingering nutty cream-of-soda notes.
Distilled with five classic London dry botanicals along with basil and fresh Comice pears. The more you sip, the more you are aware of subtle ripe pear flavours, which along with a sweet nuttiness, seem to soften this very attractive gin.
