Chapel Down winemakers, based in Tenterden have launched two exciting new spirits

Chapel Down, England’s leading wine producer, has launched its first gin and a vodka produced from grapes from Chapel Down’s 2016 harvest.

Chapel Down Bacchus Gin and Chapel Down Chardonnay Vodka have been created using distilled grape skins from a single vintage year. The gin is produced from Bacchus grape skins and the vodka from Chardonnay grape skins from the wine producer’s vineyards in Tenterden.

The limited edition spirits are packaged in a custom-made 70ml glass bottle which links back to the two production processes; distillation and winemaking. The bottom half of the bottle reflects a cut-glass crystal decanter and the frosted top half of the bottle denotes the classic shape of a wine bottle.

The Kent-based wine producer already has experience in diversifying into other drinks categories. In 2011, Chapel Down launched the premium range of Curious beer and cider; each produced with a winemaking twist.

Last year, it released a 23-year-old English grape brandy, the first to be made from English grapes.

The Chapel Down Bacchus Gin and Chardonnay Vodka 2016 were released on 30 November 2017 and will be available for a limited period of exclusivity through Majestic Wine Warehouse and also at www.chapeldown.com.
