The Vision

The vision was to create something that represented Suffolk, its heritage, its landscapes, and its people. Using produce which has been cultivated from the Retreat East 35-acre estate, from hand-picked strawberries, blackberries, rhubarb, and plums, along with foraged botanicals - to create a real 'taste of Suffolk' and a token for guests to take away with them.

The Creation

The Retreat East gin has been carefully curated by ‘The Heart Of Suffolk’ distillery in the nearby village of Bacton. An independent, family-run business that focuses on small hand-crafted batch gins using the traditional pot distil method. The Suffolk fruits & hand-crushed botanicals have been carefully blended with a London Dry style gin to create a distinct, fresh, and flavoursome taste with fruitful aromas.

The Taste

Enjoy the Retreat East gin neat, on the rocks, paired with a chilled tonic or blended with our favourite cocktail recipe, the Kitchen Garden Gin Twist: 2 ounces of Retreat East gin 1/2 ounce lemon juice, freshly squeezed 1/2 ounce raspberry syrup* 1 egg white Garnish: 3 raspberries

Local Area

Retreat East is located next to the picturesque old Roman settlement of Coddenham, with its narrow high street and chocolate box cottages it's certainly worth a visit.
