6 O'Clock Gin ~ Combine precisely balanced Six O'clock Gin with our perfectly matched Six O'clock Tonic to create your own moment of "ginspiration".
Balance, poise and precision; three imperatives in the mind of engineer and inventor Edward Kain. With meticulous attention to detail he created mechanical works of art, documented in blueprints that are still treasured today.
A blueprint for gin deserves the same balance, poise and precision, which Edward's great grandson, Michael, uses to make Six O'Clock Gin. Inspired by his forefather, Michael carefully selects and precisely balances Juniper with six other botanicals to chime together as sweetly as any timepiece. Orange Peel adds a citrus in delightful harmony with floral Elderflower. The result is a clean, smooth and richly flavoured gin.
Edward was known for restraint in gin consumption and looked forward to 6'O Clock, his time for 'ginspiration.
Tasting Notes from the IWSC judges:
"Delightful variation on a theme. The traditional characters are there but some fresh citrus and lovely notes of elderflower. Amazingly powerful in the mouth with great depth of flavour. Super and full floral backing. Fresh yet soothing. Full flavoured but beautifully balanced. Long and full flavoured finish where the floral notes are strongly evident."
Bramley & Gage ~ A Bit of History
We are a small family business focused on making the highest quality, great-tasting liqueurs.
In the mid 1980's Edward Bramley Kain and Penelope Gage started experimenting in the kitchen of their South Devon farmhouse with strawberry, raspberry and blackcurrant liqueurs. The fruits came from their fruit farm and the recipes followed a 'maceration' method traditional in France. The liqueurs were a huge success and were soon available in local off-licences, delicatessens and tourist attractions. It was a great opportunity to experiment with different varieties of fruits and with the abundance of sloes in the hedges it wasn't long before Bramley's Sloe Gin made it onto the shops' shelves too.
After 10 years of farming soft fruit and making fruit liqueurs Edward and Penelope sold the farm and moved into a dedicated building with a small bottling line and larger scale facilities. They still insisted on sourcing the best-quality fruits as locally as possible and concentrated on producing the most flavoursome liqueurs achievable. Over the years the quality of our liqueurs resulted in us being given many awards from prestigious food and drink competitions, including Taste of the West, the Great Taste Awards, the Quality Drinks Awards, the International Wine and Spirits Competition.
Now 25 years on son, Michael, and daughter, Felicity, run the business; still making the liqueurs in exactly the same way - in small batches giving the freshest flavours possible.
Bramley and Gage make each of their liqueurs taste as true to the original fruit as possible.
