Where to Find UK’s Best-Selling Silent Pool Gin in The Gap

Silent Pool Gin, which launched in 2014 at the Albury Estate in Surrey Hills U.K., has launched in Australia and will be available in The Gap. These handcrafted artisan spirits are made with 24 natural botanicals, multi-layered and bursting with complex flavours.

Using a unique and innovative four-stage distillation process under strict quality control, Silent Pool Gin’s core botanicals consist of juniper, coriander and cardamom, which are steeped and macerated in alcohol for maximum flavour extraction, drawing a deep and rich flavour profile that lingers on the palate. 

After the distillation, the bespoke Gin Tea infusion process follows. More delicate floral ingredients, such as chamomile, rose and elderflower, are added and steeped separately in high proof spirits in a giant teabag. Twenty-four hours later, the teabag is strained and separated from the unwanted plant materials and then added to the still. This additional mixture lends a combination of bright floral notes and mid-palate complexity.

To draw out the brighter top notes of citrus and the Macedonian juniper, the distillation undergoes a basket infusion and is then completed and refined using a rectifying column that balances the aroma and taste of the final product.

Founded by Ian McCulloch and James Shelbourne, Silent Pool Gin was inspired by an atmospheric location shrouded in myth and folklore. Legend has it that in the early 1200s, a Woodcutter’s daughter was discovered floating in the Silent Pool, alongside the crest of Prince John – the future King of England. If you look closely at the pattern on your Silent Pool Gin bottle, you will spot the Woodcutter’s Daughter, Prince John and a crown representing his royal crest.

In creating the gin, McCulloch and Shelbourne wanted to perfectly encapsulate the romantic essence of Silent Pool and experimented with different flavour combinations over the years. 

The result is an award-winning gin that is beautifully complex and refreshingly distinctive. Silent Pool Gin is best served as a G&T over ice, with premium Indian tonic water and a garnish of orange peel.

“We are excited about the potential for Silent Pool within the Australian market, with consumers already looking to add new and interesting brands to their repertoire, we are confident that we can provide a unique offering when people choose to trade up,” Adam Dobson, Global Sales Director of Silent Pool Gin, said.
