Last week on World Earth Day, the fast selling gin in the UK and House of Coco favourite, Silent Pool Distillers, unveiled its eco-wonder ‘Green Man Woodland Gin’. It is the first spirit in the world to be packaged in a cardboard bottle.
The Green Man is an enigmatic and elusive figure of legend. Rooted in English folklore, he embodies the power of nature and his spirit echoes through our trees, woodlands and forests. The history of Green Man is rooted in Pagan folklore and his leafy appearance can be found carved into wood and rock in religious buildings and English pubs. The botanicals used to create Green Man are inspired by the woodlands of Surrey where Silent Pool Distillers is located.
Top notes of fresh and clarifying pine, fir and rich birch leaf give way to a more herbal, green mid-palate including Macedonian Juniper, rose hips and apple. Enjoy a long finish with woody, rooty notes coming through from Bosnian Juniper, fennel seeds, dandelion and burdock root.
The bottle is frugalpac, an innovative paper based bottle, which is five times lighter than glass and is made from 94% recycled paper. It gets our stamp of approval over and over again.
