HYKE Gin

70cl | 40% ABV | England

Foxhole Spirits’ Hyke Gin is a slightly sweet, fresh gin using a half grape, half neutral grain base that salvages the would be waste grapes from supermarkets and turns them into delicious spirit!

Hyke Gin is an amazing endeavour, with big, bushy green notes and a spice cupboard hit from the African botanicals. The grape helps the fruity elements of the juniper berries to shine, making this most elegant in a Martini.

"Hyke Gin is a really smart idea that's been well executed. Concept aside and taken on purely gin terms as a flavour, it's equally good - zesty citrus peel and coriander leads onto resinous juniper and a long complex finish."

About this product

To make the Hyke, surplus grapes are turned into brandy. This brandy is added to grain spirit alongside more grapes and other botanicals such juniper, coriander, myrrh and rooibos. This is then all distilled together.

Foxhole Spirits was founded by James Oag-Cooper in 2016. He has a keen interest in promoting sustainability within the drinks sector, in this case turning waste into wine (and then wine into gin…)

Made at Silent Pool distillery, Foxhole Spirits kicked up its sustainability efforts a notch in 2018 as a company, when it launched Hyke Gin, a spirit that used unsold, bound-for-waste table grapes as a botanical.

"There’s a soft acidity to the nose (apples and grapes) underpinned by spice. To taste the spirit has a rounded feel, with floral almost violet-like grape tones playing a dashing cameo, with juniper quickly joined by coriander seed on the finish."
