Doghouse Distillery – Renegade Gin

£37.50

**We currently have an offer on for a free virtual tour of Doghouse Distilleries with every bottle ordered!**

 

Renegade gold medal, award winning gin.

 

It is the only “grain to glass” gin produced in London and one of a handful in the whole of the UK. We are not fans of following the traditional route in distilling (or life), and Renegade is contemporary on all levels.

 

Doghouse use 14 botanials in total. All the usual ‘ginny’ suspects are there such as juniper, coriander, angelica, orris, however what stands Renegade out from the crowd is the use of green, leafy botanicals such as bay, sage, winter savoury and cardamom to give it leafy fresh pine, herbaceousness on the palate. And a hint of warmth and spice is down to the addition of a West African pepper called Grains of Paradise.

 

This badass gin is insanely sessionable, deliciously herbaceous and piney, with a smooth, lingering finish.

 

Fun fact – the label was designed by a tattoo artist!

 

Perfect Serve: Premium Indian Tonic Water (regular or light) & a Sprig of Rosemary

Darren’s Notes:

I can’t wait to get down to meet the people at Doghouse, I really like the look and feel of this gin and ‘not normal’ sits very well with me – tasting video coming soon! It’s great to have the only grain to glass producer in London in the shop, there aren’t many out there that do this and it’s lovely to think they do it all in house.

From Doghouse:

In the doghouse

Doghouse Distillery is an independent grain distillery located in Battersea, London. Doghouse has a full micro-brewery, 3 rectification columns (a total height of 21m) and a 1500 litre copper pot still.

In the Doghouse, we are pioneering ‘grain to bottle’ gin and vodka in London, being the first (and currently only) distillery to make gin from scratch, and one of only a handful in the whole of the UK.

The idea of creating a grain distillery arose in the mind of our ‘Head Hydrator’, Braden, back in 2014. And it took three years and a shit tonne of hard work to get to us production in late 2017!

Why grain to bottle?

Many distilleries buy in a 96% neutral grain alcohol and start their gin making process from there. However, in the Doghouse we are passionate about handcrafting each of our products from scratch. We do this to control uniqueness and quality, and to master what we have learnt is a rare trade!

We started with our gin, Renegade, made using our own base spirit. Next was our vodka, Baller, which recently won “Best Spirit” in the Great British Food Awards. We also make a Sloe and a Damson Gin, using Renegade as the base. At the end of our journey we will be true grain distillers with a suite of interesting and high quality spirits.

HOW WE ROLL..

“Doghouse” to us reflects an underlying vibe of good times, passion and innovation, with a hint of rebellion.

Aside from a passion for quality products, you may have gotten the idea by now that we like to be different in the Doghouse. In fact one of mantras is “out with tradition and in with the new”.

We are inspired by those across the centuries that pushed the boundaries and broke the rules and consequently changed life for the better! From musicians, to activists, to politicians, to inventors, to distillers.
