The Collector Vermouth launches & Wassail fun beckons.

The Collector Vermouth

A proud moment for us all as we officially launch The Collector Vermouth, a recipe in development for five years, made with herbs grown on site, wild botanicals foraged from around the walls, apple spirit, wine & hand made caramel.

We are really pleased with the tasting notes.


Fine sediment with an amber hue.


Aromatic with notes of burnt orange, toffee, marmalade rosemary & sage.


Initial sweetness that gives way to satiating bitter notes, gentian, dried citrus fruit, roasted chestnuts and marmalade.

Drink, Eat, be merry, and wish our trees ‘Waes heal’ (good health).

Wassail the trees, that they may bear

You many a plum, and many a pear:

For more or less fruits they will bring,

As you do give them wassailing. -Robert Herrick (1591-1674)Screen Shot 2014-01-30 at 14.07.02
