The real highlight, however, is the use of chestnuts in a separate batch. They give the nginious! Smoked & Salted Gin its fine smoky note. However, this does not dominate the gin.
For the final refinement, a rare rock salt from the Swiss Alps, 'Sel à l'Ancienne', which was also previously smoked, was added to the blended gin.
