At the distillery we currently produce gin. From next year we shall also be making Maidstone Hollands (genever-style spirit) with Gazle Wine (blackcurrant liqueur) following after.

Maiden Distillery Gin - Maidstone Gin

 

 

Our gin is made by distilling neutral spirit with a number of traditional botanicals.

 

The gin is fresh and bright, bursting with flavour, slightly sweeter than some London Dry’s. Our gin isn’t Old Tom in style as no sugar is added after distillation, the sweetness comes directly from the sweet botanicals which are added to the still, namely marshmallow root and meadowsweet. This sweetness, along with zingy cardamom and coriander and the bright, piny flavours of juniper give our gin a lovely complex, yet rounded, flavour.

 

Our gin makes a great Tom Collins, an exquisite French 75 and a rather delicious Negroni.

 

Botanicals: Juniper, coriander seed, angelica, cardamon, meadowsweet, marshmallow root, orris root, cassia bark, liquorice root & orange peel.

 

(Due to the high oil content in our chosen botanicals, this gin will louche on dilution. Don't be concerned, be enchanted as the white maiden awakens in your glass.)

 

Available in 700ml glass bottles, 42% abv

Maiden Spiced Gin

 

 

This is an infused gin. We take our delicious distilled Maidstone Gin and infuse it with winter spices (cinnamon, vanilla, cloves and citrus zest). The resulting spirit is a rich, warming blend that is delicious when served cold, expecially with Fever-Tree Ginger Ale and an orange garnish, but is particularly tasty were served with warm, cloudy apple juice garnished with apple cubes dusted with cinnamon.

Arwen's Flower Gin

 

 

First created in February 2016 this spirit is made using a different distilling process. Firstly, our floral botanicals are gently distilled in high-grade grain alcohol to produce a sweet, floral spirit. The gin part of the blend is distilled separately using the Maidstone Gin blend of botanicals (see above). The two distilled spirits are then blended together to produce a floral gin.  

 

The gin is sweet and fruity. The sweetness comes directly from the sweet botanicals which are added to the still, namely marshmallow root and meadowsweet in addition to the flower blossoms and fruit pieces which have been distilled. This sweetness, along with the bright flavours from the Maidstone Gin give our newest expression a lovely light, summery flavour.

 

 

Botanicals: Juniper, coriander seed, angelica, cardamon, meadowsweet, marshmallow root, orris root, cassia bark, liquorice root, orange peel, marigold, camomile, rose, cornflower, blackberry leaf, apple, strawberry & raspberry. The gin is then infused with rosehip & hibiscus.

 

(Due to the high oil content in our chosen botanicals, this gin will louche on dilution. Don't be concerned, be enchanted as the flower maiden awakens in your glass.)

 

Available in 500ml & 700ml glass bottles, 42% abv

 

 

 

Opulent Berry Gin

 

 

Maiden's latest spirit is made using a different distilling process. Firstly, a host of rich berries are added to the still, along with juniper and tradional gin botanicals and gently distilled in high-grade grain alcohol. This distillation produces a flavoursome, berry spirit. The gin is rested before more berries are added and dilution takes place, creating an intensely fruity gin with the required hit of juniper.  

 

The gin is rich and fruity. There is some sweetness which comes directly from the berries - no sugar is added.

 

 

Botanicals: Juniper, angelica, orris root, blackberries, elderberries, blackcurrants, cherries, strawberries, raspberries.
