History

Primarily producing fruit flavored spirits, Chilton Liqueurs was begun in 1997 by Roger Strachan and, since 2007 his niece Fiona Rogers-Coltman has taken over the running of the business.

Production

The base used to produce this is Greenall’s London Dry Gin – with a triple distilled wheat grain neutral spirit into which 8 botanicals are steeped for 24 hours before being distilled in a copper pot still for a fourth and final time. Seville Oranges are then infused in this Gin for 4 months before being filtered and bottled.

The resultant yellow colored Gin is presented in a clear squat cylindrical bottle with rounded shoulders and a bulbous neck. There is a large cream label with black colored text (clearly stating “Chilton Seville Orange Gin”) and several images including that of a dog’s head.
