Silent Pool Distillers has launched a new gin that is crafted using some of the world’s ‘rarest’ citrus varieties into Waitrose stores across the UK.
Silent Pool Rare Citrus Gin is made using fruits from around the globe such as Hirado buntan, natsudaidai, Buddha’s hand and green Seville orange.
As a result, the gin is described as having floral citrus and exotic fruit aromas that “lead into sweet notes of honey and melon, with juniper marrying the flavours together”.
According to Silent Pool Distillers, the rare citruses are sourced from world-renowned citrus collectors on the Alentejo coast in Portugal, who grow in excess of 300 citrus varieties.
Described as zesty and vibrant, the spirit has been distilled using the brand’s unique four-tiered process and is free of artificial flavourings.
Adam Dobson, global sales director at Silent Pool Distillers, said: “Whilst super premium spirits continue to drive growth in the drinks category, we’re delighted to announce the official national launch of our naturally distilled, beautifully aromatic Silent Pool Rare Citrus Gin with Waitrose.
“With their discerning customer base and focus on sourcing quality artisan produce from ethical and sustainable suppliers, Waitrose is the perfect launch partner. We look forward to continuing our relationship with them and driving sales of both our original and rare citrus gins both in-store and online.”
The citrus gin joins the company’s Silent Pool Gins portfolio that features the original and a limited-edition rose expression. Silent Pool Rare Citrus Gin was first released on the company’s website in September, with Waitrose marking the product’s first supermarket launch.
