Somerset Distillery Creates Gin from Beer

News: October 2018

Somerset gin producer Wicked Wolf has collaborated with neighbouring Exmoor Ales to develop a new product using distilled beer.

Exmoor Gold Gin includes a distillation of Exmoor Gold, one of the UK’s first golden ales of the modern era, when it was created in the 1980s. Double distilling the beer creates a schnapps-like product, which is then used as a botanical distillate when blending the gin.

The 42% ABV, limited-edition gin – claimed to be the first gin to incorporate a distillation of beer in its ingredients – retails for £38 a bottle.
