Old Bakery - Original Gin
There is nothing particularly extraordinary about Old Bakery Gin to nose, but then, that’s the whole point. The gin is based upon a recipe created by people who lived so long ago that a taste of one of the star-botanical gins of today would cause some sort of revolution. No, this is a gin that smells like nothing but good old fashioned gin. Juniper is present, something rooty too, and a hint of something bright. An educated guess – but absolutely a guess – the four would be juniper, coriander seed, liquorice root and grapefruit peel.
Specifics aside, the taste is a little more nuanced, with that twang of zesty grapefruit meets caramelised blood orange sensation at the fore, joined by a weighty root that fills the cheeks with a soft, viscous sensation, easing the liquid down the throat with not a hint of burn in site. (This in itself is pretty incredible, actually, given that this is a 41.7% ABV spirit being sipped at room temperature. An incredible amount of skill has been deployed to get Old Bakery Gin as smooth as it is, which is remarkable given that Ron was new to distilling prior to this venture). The juniper oscillates wildly, flitting between an earthy, dusty pine and a more berry-like clarity, but never really overwhelming proceedings. It’s great, solid stuff, and something Gin geeks should strive to get hold of.
It’s always great when people start a venture based on something they truly love. Well, Oli and Sam truly love beer. They love beer so much that they started brewing from Sam’s bedroom while still attending University. A few years and several self-convincing conversations later, the duo were ready to start brewing for the world.
In November 2018, Attic rolled out its first lot of Craft Beers to an overwhelmingly positive response. The unbelievable show of support from local drinkers led to Oli and Sam expanding production; quadrupling original capacity in fact, within the span of just two years! It was Attic’s varied Craft Beer offering and the completely unconventional take on it; mixing unthought-of flavour combinations to great success, that convinced audiences to take to it so quickly.
Innovation rates high at Attic, a factor that is evidenced by their barrel ageing program; the output of which is now available in the market. The ‘Attic’ space is also not just a brewery and taproom alone, but, rather a place where fans of Craft Beer, artists, and people in general can alternatively come to meet, and share art and culture. This could be the first instance that such a meeting of souls and emotions has been promoted through the prospect of beer, and we are just thankful that it was initiated by a brand as youthful and vibrant as Attic.
To Craft Beer, With Love... From The Attic To The World
“As two people who lived for the brew and now brew for a living, every single day revolves around Attic and what we can do to take the energetic appeal of our beers to the next level.
We know our offering has a certain unique ‘grab’ that drinkers really love, which is something we intend to keep on improving by adding more value, and more excitement over time.”
