THE FISHERS GIN STORY

Fishers Gin combines rare old English herbs and botanicals with distilled barley, sourced entirely from East Anglian farmers. Born from the union of master distiller John McCarthy and Oxford University botanist James Firth, Fishers Gin reflects a passion for nature and research, capturing the wild and forgotten flavours of the English coastline.

Infusing these mystifying and intriguing aromas with traditional botanicals, Fishers is more than a gin, it is an expression of the English coast; its awe-inspiring natural landscapes and the captivating traditions that have flourished there for so long.

   

THE COAST

Britain was once a wild place, where skilled people toiled hard to survive off the land and sea. And none were more skilled or toiled harder than the fishermen on Suffolk’s rugged and often bleak coast.

Today boats venture out daily into the wild North Sea, each fisherman trained in a craft that has been handed down from generation to generation. It’s this rich heritage of life untamed that we’ve captured with Fishers Gin.

Like the fishermen before us, we’ve mined Suffolk’s wilding landscapes, the many miles of marshes and fertile pastures carved and made mineral-rich by the sea. Although the sea can be harsh and unforgiving, the land adjoining is lush and fertile and home to a multitude of botanical delights, much of it on highly prized marshland that is home to nightjars, kingfishers, otters and a huge array of protected wildlife.

Our distilling process is unique. While the majority of gins re-distil alcohol from spirit grains, ours is crafted straight from the barley found in the grassy headlands that surround our Suffolk distillery. This process means our gin has a particularly full bodied texture and flavour that provides the perfect canvas for our herbaceous and extremely aromatic botanicals to shine through.

This combination of traditional gin botanicals, rare plants and foraged herbs that have been used for centuries to flavour coastal dishes, makes Fishers Gin truly unequalled.

DISTILLATION

At the Copper House distillery, the botanist’s work is done and James hands over to John McCarthy, our award-winning Adnams distiller. The distillery sits a few hundred yards from the sea and has its own private facility to convert local malted barley into gin.

The spirit used for Fishers Gin starts its life as barley grown across East Anglia and is sourced from the same farmers each year. After being malted, John produces a barley wash, which is fermented to seven percent alcohol using an eight-year-old house yeast. Once stripped, polished and rectified, the 100% East Anglian Barley Spirit is at ninety percent alcohol and the perfect base for a gin as unique and pure as Fishers.

The carefully prepared roots, leaves, seeds and berries are steeped in the barley spirit overnight and then receive a final shot-distillation in a copper gin still. The still incorporates three plates and a condenser to control reflux and produce the most flavourful, full bodied and aromatic gin possible.

SUFFOLK'S RARE INGREDIENTS

James Firth studied Botany at Oxford University and has dedicated his life to plants and nature in England. As our head botanist, he spent countless hours scouring historical manuscripts and looking at medieval herbalists to revive ingredients long thought extinct.

Adding to a classic selection of gin botanicals, from warming juniper and aromatic cardamom to sharp orange and lemon peel, James has sourced a selection of rare old English herbs to create a truly unique gin that speaks of its rare origins.

Each one of our selected wild botanicals has been ethically sourced, many foraged daily by James, and are native to the Suffolk coast. On the marshland that divides the North Sea from the River Alde, the harsh sea gives way to endless shades and textures of green; hundreds of herbs, grasses and flowers growing within one area. Each botanical is carefully considered, picked and dried at the optimum time for the best impact on our flavour and aroma.

Like the wild seas that inspire us, our botanicals cannot be truly tamed. Every batch of Fishers will be slightly unique in its creation and singular in its flavour. Fishers is a genuinely artisanal product working perfectly alongside nature itself.

   

SPIGNEL

Spignel tastes different to everyone. It is so rare that we have cultivated our own source, the location of which is a closely guarded secret.

It is also the most curious of our botanicals and forms part of the backbone to the Fishers flavour profile.

Some claim it has a curry-like fragrance. To others, notes of celery and fennel. Some even find a slightly sour aroma.

The sensation of taste is intricate and this is what lends Fishers Gin its sophisticated complexity.

ROCK SAMPHIRE

This fine British aromatic was highly prized in Britain’s Victorian era, mainly due to the extreme difficulty in locating and harvesting it.

It can only be found in craggy outcrops where it only germinates in very specific conditions. Although it was traditionally used for its leaf, we use the flower and seed head as they reveal the strongest fragrances.

WOOD AVEN

Harvesting this botanical is a challenging process. It is a woodland-edge plant the flower of which has a long history of medical uses, but it is the aromatic claw-like root which we use in Fishers.

It is the most difficult part to obtain since the roots are so fibrous that they often break when pulled from the ground. Wood Aven lends a celery note to the gin, although like asparagus, it only reveals its scent to some noses.

BOG MYRTLE

This botanical can only be foraged at a very particular time in the year. As the name suggests, it is found in bog-like landscapes and its signature scent changes throughout the year, depending on when you pick it.

It is extremely aromatic and has been described by many scents, although James our botanist states that more than anything, it “smells like Christmas”. An enigmatic plant as unpredictable as the ocean.
