La Mare Wine Estate has launched a new limited-edition Gin infused with local Rhubarb and Honey. 

The locally sourced ingredients are Rob Pinel’s Rhubarb in St Ouen and Francois Le Luyer’s honey from St John. The estate’s award-winning Royal Gin has been infused with rhubarb flavour and a contrasting floral note from the honey. Notes of citrus, spice and juniper play a supporting role and add complexity. Recommended serving one part gin, three parts tonic water and a wedge of grapefruit.

La Mare’s head of production, Tom Walker, said, ‘Rhubarb and honey was an obvious choice to celebrate this summer, with the estate hosting weddings again and the tourism activities back in full swing. Many hours were devoted to carefully preparing several hundred kilos of fresh local rhubarb before blending in the Jersey Honey. With an extended time for flavours to develop and a daily tasting, each bottle was filled and labelled by hand.’

Managing Director Tim Crowley said: ‘La Mare continues its passion to develop new local products with this most recent release. It’s fun, tastes deliciously fresh and is perfect for sipping with friends. For us, it also represents the good times ahead as we have all had a tough past 18 months. Tom has worked hard on this and the result is excellent. My thanks also go to our local partners Rob and Francois for supplying such high quality products.’

La Mare Jersey Royal Rhubarb and Honey Gin is available to purchase from: La Mare Estate in St Mary, Maison De Jersey (33 King Street) and Jersey Airport.

It is also available for local delivery at
