History

In 1690, English soldiers returning from the wars against the Dutch in the Mediterranean, brought back a drink that become so popular, that within sixty years it was being blamed for the rapid degradation of society. This period is being remembered as the Gin Craze, and Gin is today referred to as Mothers Ruin. By 1751 the British government decided to act, regulating uncontrolled production, by imposing a law forcing distillers to become licensed, and the production of Gin became organized. When buying Gin in the 1700's and 1800's you'd be offered a simple choice: Holland's Gin or English Gin, and English Gin was often given names as Old Tom and Young Tom, or named after the distiller or the location as Booth's Gin and Warrington Gin.


Description

Old English Gin is made from a 1783 recipe, distilling eleven botanicals in Angela, the oldest pot still being used in England today. And by using recycled bottles, organic sealing and silk printed labels, all as they did back in 1783, we are reinvigorating the way English Gin was made and distributed back then. 


Tasting notes

A subtle juniper base with a clear citrusy nose, followed by harmonic spicy tones from coriander, liquorice and cinnamon. A floral note of orange flowers appears from the combination of orris root and orange peel, and the sweetness does that Old English Gin can be taken neat – just as in the old days.
