Chase Distillery is adding a new flavoured gin to its English countryside collection.
The Chase Raspberry and Basil Gin pairs the distillery’s signature GB Gin with juicy raspberry and herbaceous basil. Launching in May, it will join the Chase Hedgerow Elderflower Gin and Rhubarb and Bramley Apple Gin in the countryside range.
Chase says the new gin’s tart berry and herbaceous notes complement the juniper backbone in its GB Gin, which is distilled from scratch from a potato-based spirit on its farm in Herefordshire.
James Chase, director at Chase Distillery, said: “We’re delighted to be able to introduce another gin to our English countryside collection. The Chase Raspberry and Basil Gin embodies our core ethos as a distillery that distils luxury spirits in the heart of the English countryside. The gin blends natural flavours with our signature dry GB Gin to create a delicious experience, that really is summer in a glass.”
Chase Raspberry and Basil Gin (40% ABV) is exclusively in Selfridges and online at selfridges.com until 17 May, retailing at £44.99 for a 70cl bottle. It will then be available to buy via chasedistillery.co.uk and selected independent retailers.
Launched in 2009, Chase Distillery makes a range of spirits including vodka and gin and distills its base spirit from potatoes grown on the family farm.
Chase was acquired by drinks giant Diageo earlier this year, following approval for the deal from the UK’s Competition and Markets Authority.
