Daffy’s is a gin like no other, created from the finest French grain spirit, distilled on an ancient copper pot whisky still with Lebanese mint and the finest botanicals to create a gin that is classic, complex, perfectly balanced and fresh with a world of intrigue.
Daffy’s Gin has been crafted to be enjoyed straight over ice like the finest of malt whiskies, to make the ultimate D&T, the very best of Negroni and other great cocktails.
Daffy’s have spent 4 years on an adventure and quest to create a gin like no other, a gin of the finest quality achievable, using the very best botanicals and some new botanicals to gin. What they have discovered, they are amazingly excited about and very keen to share it with as many like-minded friends as possible.
Daffy’s started by using the finest pure wheat grain spirit from northern France that they could find, then, distilling it in the same manner as malt whisky on an ancient single batch copper pot still. The botanicals that they steep and distil are a combination of the traditional – juniper, coriander seeds, cassia bark and the new – Lebanese mint and rare variety lemons.
The quality of the base spirit they use, along with how they steep and distil their botanicals results in a deeply complex and well balanced spirit that is exceptionally good to drink on its own over ice, in cocktails or as a life-changing D&T with fresh mint and lime.
Lebanese mint as a botanical brings and extraordinary freshness to Daffy’s complimenting their other tasting notes of toffee, citrus, spice caramel and fresh mint.
Why 43.4% - Well you may ask … . Many gins bottle at 37.5%, many at 40% and many much stronger … . For Daffy’s and their gin 43.4% is the perfect balance of strength and flavour. Any stronger and the spirit becomes punchier, a little more closed and with a burn that breaks the concentration. Any weaker and the balance and complexity becomes too diluted and the heart of the gin becomes less strong … . That is why 43.4%.
At 43.4% Daffy’s complexity is as perfectly balanced. Strong bodied with many levels of well balanced freshness, notes of citrus and mint, toffee, caramel and chocolate underpinned with a solid woody character like that of malt whisky. When enjoyed straight Daffy’s is a well rounded and smooth gin with a long finish.
