"Quality is pride of workmanship."
Passion, inspiration, pride and perfection goes into everything we make at Downton Distillery; that's the sign of our workmanship.
“It’s rare when we see a start-up with massive potential right off the bat. Downton Distillery and their Explorer’s Gin however, has just that and more. They are proving that what’s needed in today’s saturated category is about so much more than being a local gin, a craft distiller, a small batch production or even – having great gin. They demonstrate that great gin is about being more than the sum of any individual part and do so with panache.”
Olivier Ward Gin Foundry
"Explorer's Gin harmoniously brings together classic gin characteristics with a contemporary twist. Familiar juniper, mixed citrus & liquorice flavours are joined by Western Red Cedar which enhances the piney notes, fennel brings out a herbal side, & a kick of warming pepper spice commences a lingering finish. It's a gin with complexity & depth and it is engaging through having clearly identifiable characteristics & stages along the flavour journey."
Paul Jackson The Gin Guide
THE GIN GUIDE
"Explorer’s Gin is an exceptional gin! First you need to get over how stunning the glass bottle is. It's a deep sea dark teal colour, covered in a golden compass and navigation chart! It’s a stunning! On the nose you get citrus and pine with a peppery undertone. On the palette you get juniper and a pop of citrus, hints of florals and a warming peppery flavour which makes wayfor an explosion of cedar ! This is really good value for money when you think what a beautiful statement piece the bottle is.
