To produce HYKE, we created an ingenious solution that makes use of surplus table grapes and turns them into a rich, full-bodied gin.
It’s bold, award-winning flavour profile is created by a unique botanical recipe which is directly inspired by the grapes' African and South American origins.
HYKE is made in England using grape spirit produced from internationally sourced, fresh table grapes that are surplus to the requirements of the supermarket supply chain.
The grape spirit is blended with grain spirit and flavoured with a blend of botanicals inspired by the grapes’ global origins, including coriander, myrrh and rooibos.
The result is a one-of-a kind gin that can be enjoyed as part of your favourite gin and tonic, in any gin-based cocktail, or in some of our other delicious signature cocktails.
Many of Britain's table grapes are imported from countries like Egypt, South Africa, and Chile. During the packing process grapes are cut, trimmed, and separated to fit into punnets, leaving behind thousands of tonnes of loose grapes that can no longer be sold as "fresh”.
Foxhole Spirits and fruit importer Richard Hochfeld Ltd thought these grapes could be reinvented in a different, more delicious way. Together, we came up with an ingenious solution that turns surplus grapes into HYKE Gin.
Presented in a modern take on the traditional gin bottle patterned with designs inspired by traditional African fabrics, HYKE is the perfect addition to every connoisseur's collection, and also makes a great gift for friends and loved ones.
