The Cambridge Distillery Collection is Ready to Elevate the Festive Season

Three times winner of the Most Innovative Distillery in the World, the Cambridge Distillery makes gin blending an art form. Only fresh and in season botanicals are used, each individually distilled with varying temperature, timing and pressure, to achieve the perfect flavour. The brand’s own William Lowe, Master of Wine & Master Distiller, is a world-leading expert in creating luxury gin. Lowe himself has created the Cambridge Distillery Collection, a duo that’s crafted for the most discerning palates, and made for exquisite gifting, this Christmas.

Truffle Gin

Their Christmas collection arrives just in time for celebrating and gifting this Christmas. And it contains a range of exciting ‘firsts”. Cambridge’s Truffle Gin is the first digestif gin made using white Piedmont truffle from Alba in Piedmont. Complex and decadent, it is a bold and surprising gin. And with its extremely long, expressive finish and unique rewarding taste, Truffle Gin is a fitting accompaniment to the finest of dining. Truffle Gin is the perfect gift for the drinks connoisseur, an impressive tipple for those who love to entertain, or for those seeking a personal treat, to be served after a meal. Drink it neat on ice, or in a Truffle Negroni (30ml Truffle Gin, 20 ml Campari, 20ml Sweet Vermouth, 7.5ml Créme de Cassis and garnishished with a sage leaf).

Truffle Gin has a 42% ABV and is available online priced £80 for 70cl

About William Lowe Master of Wine & Master Distiller, Cambridge Distillery

Gin production has remained almost completely unchanged since the mid-18th Century. Most are good. Some are very good. William wanted to achieve something outstanding. He started with a deep knowledge of ingredients, only using botanicals that are fresh and in season. He distils each botanical individually to achieve the perfect flavour. Temperature, timing and pressure are just three of the nine variables that he uses to tailor the treatment of each and every botanical, and has made blending gins an art form within the category.
