About The Cotswold Distilling Company - 1616 BARREL-AGED GIN
Cotswold's Barrel-Aged Gin was created to pay homage to Cotswolds local bard William Shakespeare. 1616 gin is Cotswolds interpretation of the traditional Dutch genever recipe.
Barrel-Aged gin is made by re-distilling their malt whisky in a copper still and combining it with juniper, coriander, nutmeg, orange peel and other botanicals. The spirit is matured in STR red wine casks for 3 to 6 months. The result is an extraordinarily delicious spirit with notes of freshly baked fruit loaf, dark chocolate chips and vanilla.

About The Cotswold Distilling Company
From our single malt whisky to our gins and liqueurs, everything we make at the Cotswolds Distillery is about quality and flavour above all else.
Whisky production is at the heart of everything we do at the distillery. Our flagship Cotswolds Single Malt is a rich, fruity and sippable whisky. It has a balance and depth of flavour that belies its young age, due to the exceptional attention to detail in our distilling and our use of the finest oak casks for maturation.
We recently launched our cask strength release single malt, Founder's Choice, aged exclusively in our founder Dan's favourite casks: shaved, toasted and re-charred American Oak red wine barriques. These uniquely active casks give a rich and intense maturation to the distillery's fruity spirit, offering toffee, oak and red fruits, and beautiful, deep colour.
Distilled with nine carefully-considered botanicals, our Cotswolds Dry Gin is a London Dry with an aromatic twist. We distil juniper, coriander seed, angelica root, local lavender, bay leaf, hand-peeled fresh lime and pink grapefruit zest, cardamom and black peppercorn in our copper pot still, resulting in a rich and robust, award-winning gin.
We do not remove the essential oils in our gin as these create a rich flavour and mouthfeel. As a result, our gin forms a unique pearlescent cloud when ice or tonic is added, and it tastes delicious!
SMALL BATCH RELEASES
Not often content with sitting still, we have also produced a range of small-batch spirits and liqueurs. Many of these are seasonal runs, available only in the distillery shop, but we have some long-standing favourites too.
