Phillips Stump GinPhillips Fermentorium – Stump Coastal Forest Gin

Created entirely in-house at the Phillips Fermentorium. The low wines are first distilled on a 1920’s British-made still affectionately christened ‘Old George’ before being refined in a new German-built refractory still. Finally, the gin is redistilled with BC-grown botanicals creating a spirit featuring a rich velvety mouth feel and punctuated with coastal rainforest flavours. It’s a gin that is not only influenced by our BC environment, but actually made from it!

The Spirit

STUMP Coastal Forest Gin is crafted using hand-foraged herbs and unique botanicals grown in British Columbia. It’s a gin that reflects the origin of its ingredients; with bold flavours as undomesticated as the rugged BC coastline, delicately balanced with the bright freshness of an old growth forest.

Tasting Notes

The stump Coastal Forest Gin smells of juniper and fir with a lavender smoothness to it. A botanical array of aromas hit the nose in a very unique and floral way. Adding to the scent, the Stump is actually distilled with an infusion of  Juniper, cascade hops, grand fir, bay laurel, coriander and lavender. The flavour keeps the Juniper flavour that we love but the fir, laurel and lavender add an extra layer of earthiness, woodsiness and a very smooth body. The Gin can be sipped or mixed but don’t go too heavy on the tonic. There is no reason to water down flavour that is this unique and delicious.
