Oxfordshire-based Sky Wave Distilling Company makes hand-crafted gins.
It took over 6 months, more than 40 recipe variations, and over 300 expert testers to get to the smooth flavours you can now enjoy in Sky Wave’s award winning Signature London Dry Gin -–officially The World’s Best Contemporary London Dry Gin. The name ‘Sky Wave’ is a blend of the big skies and big seas that have characterised Rachel and Andy’s adventures over the years as a BBC reporter and Army officer.
Rachel says ‘We distil exactingly to the London Dry style using the ‘one shot’ method to create our multi-award winning signature gin. The perfect quantity of our 13 botanicals from around the world for each single batch. These are added directly to the wash, resulting in a fabulous, full-flavoured mouth feel. We add absolutely nothing afterwards except the finest Oxfordshire natural mineral water from Blenheim Palace. This way we can guarantee the flavours going in to your glass. It is distilled gently in very small batches. We distil only a few hundred bottles at a time. This allows us to manage the flavour precisely and results in a remarkably smooth gin.’
Their gins have used barcodes from Barcode1.co.uk since 2019.
