How it's made
Distilled overlooking Aldeburgh’s iconic shingle beach and handcrafted using only the finest selection of locally foraged wild herbs and coastal botanicals, the Fishers Fifty was created to captures the distinctive character of the North Sea and the Suffolk salt marshes in the perfect way to enjoy as a martini.
Fishers botanical line-up includes:
• Coriander and Angelica Root
• Along with a higher proportion of our rarer coastal plants
• Bog Myrtle
• Rock samphire
• Wood avens
The resulting spirit is herbal and savoury, with a hint of salinity bringing a bright satisfying feel to the gin.
Fishers is a London Dry Gin with a difference. All the botanicals go into our still to be steeped in our base spirit over night. Only then does the final distillation in our hand-built Copper Pot take place.
This process enables us to use the one-shot method at the end of the distillation, meaning we take only the best, or the ‘Heart’ cut of the distillate to put in our bottles.
All of which combines to produce the most distinctive, flavorsome, full-bodied and aromatic coastal gin possible.
For me, the Fishers Fifty celebrates our move to Aldeburgh and the first chance we had to really explore our English botanicals. When we first fired up Watson we couldn’t resist adding a higher proportion of our own homegrown and foraged botanicals and the result is a gin I love: herbal, savoury and even more characterful than the Original.
