Seedlip launches second expression, Garden 108

Non-alcoholic distilled spirit Seedlip has already launched a second expression, making the most of the success of its first product, Spice 94.

The new Seedlip Garden 108 is named after the number of days it takes to seed, sow and reap peas – so no surprise that it’s made using garden peas distillate.

There are also distillates of spearmint, hay, hops, rosemary and thyme in there, giving it a decidedly green nose with plenty of spice too, and some fresh, peppery notes. On the palate it goes down the citrus route, with some more of that spice and a little hoppy bitterness, plus a burst of freshness on the finish. It makes a good complement on a back bar to the much more woody, obviously clove-led Spice 94.

Use it as a non-alcoholic substitute for gin, mixed with bitter lemon or tonic (you could add some non-alcoholic bitters in there to up the citrus or spice). Or stir it down with green or vegetable-forward shrubs and cordials for a crisp, sophisticated palate cleanser.
