Multum Gin Parvo, based at Rutland Water Garden Nursery, bring you the unique flavours from Rutland captured in their selection of acclaimed craft gins. They have carefully selected and blended locally sourced ingredients to create the most beautiful combination of flavours including strawberry and Rutland lavender and Earl Grey and Rutland honey, to name a few.

Elizabeth says: “Every element of what we do is inspired by this small but mighty county, from our name, which comes from the county motto Multum-in-Parvo (Much-in-Little), our logo, which includes the horseshoe and acorns, through to our flavours.”

Multum Gin Parvo’s gins are Strawberry & Rutland Lavender, Earl Grey & Rutland Honey, and Rutland Dry Gin. They have been carefully crafted to appeal to the tastes of all gin lovers, from those who love a sweet and fruity kick, to those who love a crisp and dry gin.

Look out for the limited edition Migration Gin, a complex yet smooth gin made with blended acorn and elderflower from Rutland, combined with infused grains of paradise and hibiscus from Guinea Bissau in Africa – a blend inspired by the journey made by Ospreys from Africa to Rutland.

Elizabeth says: “We’re committed to supporting the local community and wildlife, which is why donations of £2 from the Migration Gin, inspired by the Osprey go to the Osprey Leadership Foundation.”
