Blue Bottle believe that attention to detail is everything, that life is to be observed and enjoyed and that every day things often warrant closer inspection.
It’s the long held ambition of their head distiller, Matt, whose interest in Gin and passion for the craft of distilling, was rewarded when he was made a Scholar and Freeman of the Worshipful Company of Distillers.
Matt spent a summer studying flies as part of a research project, he was undertaking at Cambridge University. It was here, as he looked down the microscope that he noticed the exceptional beauty, intricate detail and distinctive colouring of his subject, and was struck that such beauty could be easily overlooked.
Matt immersed himself in research into the history of all things gin, undertaken extensive taste testing, sourced premium botanicals from all around the world and evolved numerous prototypes to ensure that Blue Bottle gin is a truly hand crafted reflection of his passion and attention to detail, with a taste which is second to none.
Blue Bottle is distilled in an Arnold Holstein 500L copper still, at the Three Fingers Distillery, on Guernsey.
