The Teasmith Gin

70cl | 43% ABV | Scotland

A careful blend of finely curated botanicals and hand-picked tea gives 'The Teasmith' its characteristic taste, but it's a hand-rolled Ceylon tea from the Amba Estate that's the star of the show here.

Light on the palate with a distinct, crisp freshness, The Teasmith combines classic gin with a contemporary edge. Best served in a G&T with a sprig of mint, but try it in a Martini to let the tea notes unfurl in your glass.

Key Flavours

Herbal
Juniper
"Not as tannic as you might think given the name of the gin. The tea leaves are very particular and the flavour they've given here is more herbal and savoury, centred around the juniper than it is drying on the finish."

About this product

Ceylon tea along with juniper, coriander, grains of paradise, orange peel and other carefully selected botanicals are distilled in copper pot stills to a one shot London Dry method.

The Teasmith Spirit Company was established in 2016 by husband and wife Nick and Emma Smalley who felt compelled to add their own mark on the sector. They work with Strathearn Distillery who distil their gin.

The gin took its inspiration from Aberdeenshire's surprising links with the beginnings of the 19th century tea trade in Sri Lanka. In 1867, a gentleman called James Taylor from Auchenblae planted the very first tea plantation there!

A progressive exploration of the botanical heritage of the isle of Islay. 22 foraged local botanicals delicately augment nine berries, barks, seeds and peels during an achingly slow distillation.

"Classically styled but with a distinct character, the foraged botanicals add a unique dimension to the gin. Their B Corp status also helps mean that each time you buy a bottle you are supporting others committed to creating a positive impact."

"Compelling gin that combines the history of the category with modern artistic touches. Scurvy grass, ground ivy and bladderwrack may sound bonkers, but they've been used sparingly enough as to give it a salty sea air without ever forgetting its GIN."
