The spirits are made in two copper stills 450-650 litres at a time. Two of the first spirits to they produced are super premium gins that celebrate the pivotal role London has played in the juniper-based spirits history.
The signature London Dry gin is distilled using 100% British wheat spirit both vapour and direct infused with botanicals.
London Dry Gin
Fresh lemon & grapefruit peel, coriander & angelica root, juniper berries, cubeb berries and cardamom.
Nose: Opens with soft lemon drizzle cake and fresh, leafy coriander. This continues with subtly sweet angelica and oodles of rich, oily juniper - interestingly developing hints of olives in oil too!
Palate: Magnificently creamy mouthfeel, complimented by the crisp citrus peels and earthy juniper. The spiciness of the cardamom and cubeb comes through here - it's not in your face, but certainly quite noticeable.
Finish: Continued enjoyable oiliness, with final glimmers of refreshing juniper lasting on the finish.
Premium tonic garnished with juniper berries & lime wedges.
