Twenty years ago Sir Michael Colman founded Summerdown Mint and decided to grow peppermint on his farm in Hampshire. Not just any mint. He wanted to grow the kind of mint that was grown in England over 100 years ago – the kind which produced the finest premium peppermint oil. An oil that would have all of the flavours and aromas that we have been missing out on since mass-production and blended oils became the norm. A variety of Black Mitcham peppermint proved to be best suited to the English climate and local soil. The first patch was the size of a tennis court, and this has grown into the fields that we lovingly tend and harvest today. The longer growing season and cooler climate allow the plants all of the time that they need to develop an oil that has a true depth of character.
Each year we set out to harvest and distill this unique mint in our purpose-built distillery before barrelling the oil to mature for two years, allowing it to develop the aroma and flavour that you’ll recognise as Summerdown Mint. www.summerdownmint.com
