Silent Pool Gin makes for the most glorious G&T imaginable. Pour 50 ml of Silent Pool Gin over ice in a highball glass, and add 150 ml of your favourite tonic water. Zest it with a twist of orange by slicing off a sliver of orange peel and twisting it over the glass, so that it expels a little spritz of orange zest. Sit back and enjoy!Back to shop
When you smell Silent Pool Gin, you’ll breathe in a beautiful medley of floral essence and perfumed lime, with deeper herbal undertones.
When you taste Silent Pool Gin, your palate will be met with a rich, deep backdrop of licorice and cassia tones, lifted with bright aromatic and zingy bursts of citrus. A delicate floral character also makes itself known.
The Silent Pool is a mythical spot. The story goes that a young lady named Emma, the daughter of a local woodcutter, loved to bathe in the Silent Pool. Scared one night by a lecherous knight on horseback, Emma ran from his advances, and fell into the deep part of the pool where she drowned. Her father discovered her body floating in the water the next day, next to the royal crest of Prince John, which was carved into the bank of the pool. Emma, Prince John, and a crown representing the royal crest can all be spotted on the bottle design of Silent Pool Gin.
The flavours of the Silent Pool
The Silent Pool Distillery sits deep in the heart of rural Surrey, on the green banks of the mythical Silent Pool, and all of the flavour inspiration of Silent Pool Gin is drawn from the surrounding countryside. Each ingredient is carefully selected and weighed to ensure that the overall flavour and aroma palate emerges harmonious, balanced, and gloriously complex.
A masterpiece of harmony
A portion of the botanicals that go into Silent Pool Gin are bruised and macerated in the base spirit, before being transferred to the still. These are ingredients like cassia bark, orris, bergamot, and juniper berries, which build up the deep base of the gin. More flavours are added via basket infusion, lifting the medley with sweet dried pears, bright orange and lime peel, and Polish Angelica among many other ingredients. Finally, delicate botanicals such as rose petals, kaffir lime leaves, and elderflower are macerated separately and gently to retain their soft fresh characteristics. The resulting spirit is beautifully balanced with each flavour note adding its own individual voice to the harmony.
The Brains Behind It
A fortuitous meeting
The Silent Pool Distillery was founded by Ian and James, two Surrey natives who met in their local pub and discovered they had a common mission. Their goal was to set up a truly sustainable craft distillery near a freshwater source, where they could produce intricate and complex artisanal spirits created from locally-sourced ingredients. The Silent Pool Distillery is ecologically conscious and sustainably oriented – and its spirits are truly works of art.More on the Brand
