10% Off – Black Mountains Botanicals, Hill Billy Lemon Gin
Hill Billy Lemon is triple distilled on the Welsh borders high above Hay on Wye in the Black Mountains
A zingy citrus explosion of 10 botanicals including lemon grass, lemon verbena, fresh lemons and apple from the ancient orchards of Herefordshire.
Perfect with tonic and a slice of fresh lemon. Don’t like tonic? Then try this with cloudy lemonade, it’s divine!
This is a gin made with mineral water from a spring high above us and loads of fresh lemon so it will have a slightly pearlescent finish.
The Sip and Share price is calculated as follows: we take 10% off the RRP and then add postage on.
Price includes delivery and will be fulfilled by the distillery. For any issues with delivery or product please contact: Black Mountains Botanicals
About the Distiller
Lloyd was a mechanical engineer before he became a gin-maker. He spent his life managing commercial heating systems and North Sea oil pipelines. Aged 40, he fancied moving into renewable energy, and went back to university to get a Masters Degree in Science.
Then one night he went to a New Year’s Eve party in a remote Herefordshire pub…
As 2011 became 2012 he met the then-new landlord, Glyn Bufton. They struck up a friendship. And eventually Lloyd moved to Herefordshire, with his wife and two children, and went into business with Glyn.
Lloyd designed and made the two small stills at Black Mountains Botanicals, and named them after his favourite mountains: Twmpa and Blorenge. Building the distillery was just like building an oil rig, only a touch easier.
He also runs a smallholding, with sheep, pigs, hens and bees, which is not easy to do on an oil rig.
