The Classic London Dry
This is our first gin and it’s the concept that started everything!
We love a classic G&T as well as a few particular cocktails (you can see these on the ‘Our Serves’ page), but a refreshing gin and tonic was where it all began for us. We wanted to create a spirit that was crisp and citrus based, but one that still maintained the uniquely distinguishable juniper hit we know and love in gin.
Our London Dry uses lime peel and orange peel to bring the citrus through but it’s our use of the Middle Eastern ingredient of sumac that binds the whole spirit together and gives it an extremely smooth, warm finish with a hint of pepper and earthy smokiness. The sumac adds citrus tones of its own and also tempers the citrus in the gin as it’s not as sharp as say lemon, but rather adds extra depth and a longer finish to the gin.
We love this gin either neat over ice or in a simple G&T – just add your preferred citrus garnish to finish!Botanicals used:
- Juniper Berries
- Coriander Seeds
- Angelica Root
- Oriss Root
- Lime Peel
- Orange Peel
On the nose... crisp and refreshing citrus with the lime and orange dominant. Slight spice with a hint of pepper coming through.
On the palate... orange coming to the fore balanced by the lime and sumac with the sumac coming into its own providing a warm earthy backdrop for the citrus. Citrus still very much the predominant element with a peppery zing coming through at the finish.
