The result is a London Dry Gin that spans the centuries and allows us the liberty to describe Fifty Pounds Gin as historic in essence, modern in spirit.
From the botanicals used to the method of production and bottling Fifty Pounds Gin pays tribute to London’s rich gin history.
Fifty Pounds Gin is made with a combination of grain spirit – which is already distilled four times before we use it, to give greater purity – botanicals, a perfectly balanced combination of herbs, spices, fruits and flowers which give Fifty Pounds Gin its unique flavour profile. In what proportions though, can’t be told. “The recipe is secret, the botanicals are not.” The botanicals are placed into the still, along with premium neutral grain spirit and water. They are left to macerate for a short time, and then we turn on the stills, heating them gently via hot water jackets, to avoid scalding the botanicals. Botanicals : juniper, coriander, lemon & orange peel, angelica roots, savory, liquorice powder and grains of paradise.
ABV: 43.5 %
Nose: Soft, slightly subdued aromas of violet, juniper and hints of spice.
Palate: Citrus-like flavors with a good core of juniper. Tangy, slightly floral too.
