Corner Fifty Three Blood Orangecello is the latest release in their distiller’s range of seasonal releases. This is a their take on a limoncello-style liqueur but made with blood oranges, which are only in season for a very short period in the year. Therefore this will always be a very limited release.
The Corner Fifty Three set-up is small, it consists of a small distillery in founder Tom’s parents’ back garden with two, hand-built copper stills Christened Rosie and Angus. The stills are 60 litre split top copper pot still which operate in 8 hours shifts and the lowest possibly temperature to ensure the spirit collected is as smooth as possible. In a hunt to find the most PH stable water for their gin, Corner Fifty Three use Hildon natural mineral water. The pure, clean spring water is high in mineral and contributes to the smoothness of the gin. Everything is crafted by hand in small batches, or as Tom puts it “in ridiculously small batches”.
Corner Fifty Three Blood Orangecello is made from just three ingredients: blood orange, pure grain alcohol and sugar. Basically the blood orange peel is macerated in the alcohol, some blood orange juice is added and the liqueur is sweetened with sugar, producing a tart, zesty and bright liqueur.
Serve neat, over ice or in a long drink with soda or tonic water. Or try a dash in your favourite GnT.
Corner Fifty Three Blood Orangecello is packed full of zingy orange flavours. It is sweet, but not overly so, and well-balanced with a touch of bitterness.
