3 day lead-time required to confirm availability Why?

Indigenous to Britain and northern Europe, the Bilberry highlights our juniper and eight other botanicalís found in our gin. A cousin to the huckleberry and blueberry the bilberry is smaller and of fuller taste and is extremely hard to grow, thus seldom cultivated. The fruit is mostly collected from wild plants growing on public lands. It is an everymanís right to collect bilberries irrespective of land ownership. The bilberry is dark in color and usually appears black, thus the berry was commonly refereed to as a black heart in 19th century south-western England. I hope that this truly unique berry and its flavors of tart fig, pepper, and black licorice rest well on your pallet.

Technical notes
At 90 proof our gin botanicalís are macerated in a 100% Organic wheat base spirit and then distilled. The definition of small batch each gin run produces less then 10 gallons of distillate. Our gin is clean, bright, and fruity with subtle hints of black licorice.

Other text
According to Thomas Hardyís novel, The Return of the Native, the bilberries were called, “black-hearts.Ē Everyone has a bit of a dark heart, but thereís always a sweet return at the smell and taste of familiar things.
