Bottled at 43% ABV, the gin is made up of 24 botanicals including Kaffir Lime, the hero ingredient of the expression which adds citrus aromas. The producers have described the expression as having notes of spearmint and lemon, with an elegant moreish finish.
Rhian Billington, Silent Pool’s marketing director, commented: “Silent Pool Distillers has consistently been at the forefront of gin distillation innovation. The Kaffir Lime Expression is a long-awaited addition to the portfolio and joins the already established Kaffir Lime liquid garnish.
“To be able to elevate this with The Ivy team has been a hugely exciting process. It’s inspiring to see the clear synergies between both brands that have really underpinned the creation of the new expression and its presence at both The Ivy Castle View and The Ivy Cobham.”
Silent Pool’s Kaffir Lime Expression is available to purchase from the distillery, online shop and Surrey independent retailers at £30 per 70cl bottle.
A specially curated cocktail serve has also been released to accompany the gin,titled Kaffir & Champagne Sour, which can be found below.
