John Robert's Botanic Request is created and developed by Ben Peel (Sipsmith's ex innovation's manager & dedicated NPD distiller). He created this brand and spirit as he believes that everyone has an element of exceptionalism inside of them and that people should embrace what makes them exceptional and not typical, and what better way to celebrate than with this exceptional spirit to match.
Ben & Co-Founder Emelie Nilsson are using and pioneering unusual modern techniques such as ultrasonic sound vibration and vacuum pressured maceration to delicately and robustly extract the fullest of flavours from the carefully selected botanicals for your palates pleasure. This is far from a typical gin; Because for John Robert's Botanic Request, The Usual is just another word for boring.
