Please note Williams Pink Grapefruit Gin has now been replaced with the Chase Pink Grapefruit and Pomelo Gin.
Williams Pink Grapefruit Gin is a Great British Gin made in Herefordshire at the Chase Distillery. It was made an permanent fixture on their gin list in 2016 and joins stablemates GB Extra Dry and Elegant 48 and their other flavoured gins: the Sloe, Sloe and Mulberry and Seville Orange.
At time of writing, Chase Distillery are the only distillery in the UK that actually make their gins from a vodka base that they produce themselves (most will use a neutral grain spirit that is bought in). The base for Williams Pink Grapefruit Gin is basically their GB Extra Dry gin (botanicals include juniper, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, clove, almond, coriander, cardamon, cloves, liquorice and lemon) which is made from a potato vodka base, which has copious amounts of Pink Grapefruit and Pomelo added as botanicals. This is distilled, then post distillation there is also a period of maceration of the gin on more pink grapefruit peel which helps add more, intense citrus-y flavours and aromas. This also lends the gin the faintest, delicate pink colouration.
Superb grapefruit-y stuff!
