Listoke 1777 is labelled, bottled and sealed all by hand in the converted barn, thus resurrecting and returning this artisan craft to the producers' hands.
This gin is inspired by exotic ingredients from various "spice trails" around the globe. There are five traditional ingredients used, juniper, coriander see, angelica root and cassia bark. The citrus used is Spanish lemon peel. Jasmine found in abundance on the Listoke estate provide the blossom it is only fitting that something from the glorious Listoke gardens be used in the blend. Bay leaves unite the lemon and jasmine while spicy cubeb and cumin from the orients add unexpected spice and finish to Barnstorm's delivery.

“Listoke 1777 Gin is bold and full of flavour. As soon as you open the bottle you are greeted with a bountiful aroma with floral, fruity and earthy notes. The gin has personality, impressive depth of flavour and a complexity that reveals piney juniper, citrus and herbaceous notes, and a lingering finish with a touch of spice. Best enjoyed in a gin and tonic, Listoke 1777 Gin is versatile, with orange peel, rosemary and cinnamon all producing moreish servings.”
