Discover North42 Leicestershire Craft Gin
Four years ago, two gin aficionados, Sally and Joanna, opened a bar in Leicester. It was their ambition to offer the best range of quality gins in the city and using their skills and a real passion for the juniper-flavoured spirit, and, hopefully, one day develop their very own flavoured gin.
Sally and Joanna have created a unique one-of-a-kind craft distilled gin developed and distilled in Leicestershire and featuring tart pink stemmed rhubarb combined with the rich jewel-like blood orange, juniper berries and a blend of other botanicals.
North42 Gin can be enjoyed on its own as a sipping gin, Or, for a longer drink, we suggest mixing it with either a tonic water with dehydrated blood orange, or a ginger ale, garnished with dehydrated citrus slices and a final flourish from a slither of crisp fresh ginger root.
North42 Gin is a unique Leicestershire craft gin featuring the tartness of English rhubarb and the citrusiness of Spanish blood orange combined with classic botanicals to produce a gin that’s like no other.
Distilled at our distillery in the heart of the Leicestershire countryside, and using only natural ingredients, North42 Gin is something very special.
Our rhubarb and blood orange gin is an expertly distilled 42% proof gin with a carefully selected range of botanicals. These are combined with juice from English rhubarb and Spanish blood oranges to give the gin its unique colour and flavour.
Why Rhubarb and Blood Orange?
The inspiration for the gin came from a cocktail that has always been popular at North Bar & Kitchen, the Rhubarb Tumble. The Tumble combines a rhubarb gin with a blood orange liqueur to create a delicious zesty cocktail. A pairing that has always proved popular with the clientele.
Rhubarb has been a classic British ingredient in puddings and preserves for over 200 years, but it’s use in gin is much more recent. While most people think of it as a fruit it is, infact, a vegetable. Blood oranges have skins that are a rich red colour and a taste that is more tart than other oranges.
