    • A design that oozes quality. With its rich, deep colours, subtle embossed textures and glistening copper details, the HYKE Gin Very Special label tells you there’s something truly amazing and delicious inside. And that’s before you even open it. 

    • A blend of botanicals that truly sing. When you do open it, it just smells wonderful. That’s our unique blend of 19 botanicals right there. Some are obvious and familiar like Grapefruit, Earl Grey Tea and Lavender; others may take a little longer to pick out and identify. But every one of them is important and brings something particular to HYKE Gin Very Special’s full-on flavour.

    • A unique backstory and mission. All that flavour and texture comes from the blend of 19 botanicals and our grape spirit, created from a sustainable, natural material: surplus English-grown grapes, a by-product of the winemaking industry. Usually discarded, now reimagined. 

    • The Very Special touch. To every bottle of HYKE Gin Very Special, we add a tiny drop of brandy, which we’ve been secretly ageing specially for this very purpose. The effect is transformative: in that instant, all the layers of flavour come together in perfect balance. It’s like magic, and what makes HYKE Gin Very Special live up to its name, every time you taste it.


    English Grape Spirit, Juniper, Coriander Seed, Angelica Root, Orris Root, Liquorice Root, Black Pepper, Cubeb, Ginger, Dried Lemon Peel, Sambrani, Earl Grey, Lapsang Souchong, Red Sandalwood, Angelica Seed, Grapefruit Peel, Lemon Peel, Lavender, Chamomile, Timur Pepper.

    Tasting Note

    “Rich, elegant and refined, a complex and concentrated gin with dark fruit notes and bright citrus, leading into woody florals and aromatic flavours. Velvet texture and balanced lingering finish”

    Take a good look at the label. The depth of the base colour. The rich blues and greens, the shining copper foil. Now pick it up, and you’ll detect other, subtle details: the slightly embossed texture your fingertips feel but your eye might miss.

    It took months to get it absolutely spot on. Now just imagine how much time, care and attention to detail goes into the gin itself.


    HYKE Gin Very Special owes its luxurious texture and rich complexity to our English grape spirit. What brings the flavour to life is our blend of 19 botanicals. There are the usual suspects: juniper, orris root, liquorice. And then there are the citruses, the spices, the herbs. Every one of them is here because it brings something unique and vital.

    You can mix HYKE Gin Very Special with almost anything and it’ll taste amazing; and by playing with different serves, you can discover its full range of incredible flavours. Sometimes, more is more.


    HYKE Gin Very Special is made using English-grown wine grapes that are usually just discarded after pressing. More than just repurposing this wonderful natural resource, we’re completely reimagining it using our innovative three-stage process, which we pioneered back in 2016.

    It begins by reclaiming this natural by-product and using it to make an English grape spirit. We blend this with neutral grain spirit, add our unique mix of 19 botanicals and distil it for a second time, before it’s diluted with natural spring water and bottled. Not the fastest or easiest way to make gin, but for us, the best and only way.

    It’s all part of our wider mission, which you can read about here.
