This gin takes its name from the 1736 Gin Act which imposed an annual licence fee of Fifty Pounds on those wishing to produce and sell gin. This Act was a (failed) attempt to curb the prevalent gin craze.

The bottle is based on the case gin design of that Georgian era; tapered to allow tight end packing in a pre-bubble wrap time. Each bottle of Fifty Pounds Gin also bears its individual distillation batch number BATCH No 01/17, together with the year that it was distilled.

Production of Fifty Pounds Gin is similarly shaped by history. No shortcuts; high levels of care and attention from sourcing the finest botanicals to distilling in small batches; in short, the way things used to be done. It is this attention to detail that gives Fifty Pounds Gin its remarkable smoothness and exceptional quality.
