Not Another Gin

Everyone else is making gin, so we did something different: a juniper-free botanical spirit. It’s spicy, citrusy & mixes really well with tonic. AND IT’S NOT A GIN.

To make Escubac, we macerate 14 botanicals, including caraway, cardamom, nutmeg and citrus, for 72 hours, then slowly distill them on the antique stills at Distillerie Combier. The long arching lyne arms and balloon-shaped partial rectifiers create a refined aromatic spirit, which we sweeten with raisins, vanilla and a small amount of sugar, and colour straw-yellow with saffron.
