To create this new gin the distillers layered kaffir lime leaves, lime peel, orange peel and lemon thyme to give a depth of citrus flavour, which were combined with almonds, ginger, black peppercorns as well as the traditional juniper, coriander and orris to create a fully rounded and balanced dry gin.

Commenting on the new gin, Simon Picken, director at Shakespeare Distillery said: “We’re delighted to launch our latest limited-edition citrus gin and add another distillery special to our portfolio of premium, hand-crafted products. The Kaffir Lime & Orange Gin is the perfect refreshing drink to sip on a lovely warm summer evening!”

The Kaffir Lime & Orange Gin is available in three bottle options and retails at £34 for a 50cl bottle, £17.50 for a 20cl bottle and £6.50 for 5cl bottle.

The new gin, along with their growing range of spirits, can be purchased by customers online, at the distillery shop or from the distillery shop at No 1 High Street, Stratford-upon-Avon. The company also welcomes enquiries from pubs, hotels, bars and restaurants.
