Gin | Williams Chase Elegant Gin

The story of Williams Elegant Gin begins with vodka. It is a relatively unknown fact that gin is made from vodka, so, unlike other gins, Williams Elegant is truly single-estate from field to bottle. Chase presses their own organically grown cider apples from the family farm and ferments them into cider. They then distil the concoction into their very own Naked Chase and then then re-distil that with eleven carefully considered wild botanicals and naturally pure water taken from the aquifer running underneath their cider apple orchards. The result is our full bodied, sharp, yet fruity gin with tears and true provenance.
