Gonzalez Byass UK is proud to announce the arrival of The London Gin, one of a handful of super premium Gin's actually distilled in London.

Quadruple distilled in small batches under the careful eye of Master Distiller Charles Maxwell, The London Gin is made from the highest quality English grain spirit and contains 13 key botanicals.

To the traditional juniper, coriander and angelica are added lemon peel, cassia bark, liquorice, cinnamon, almond, angelica, savoury, orris root and orange root. It also uniquely contains gardenia and bergamot - that instantly recognisable perfumed aroma most often encountered in Earl Grey tea.

The pot still method of production ensures that only small batches of London Gin are produced at any one time, ensuring a constant quality threshold. The London Gin also presents itself with a turquoise-blue hue - 'The Original Blue Gin'.

At a generous 47% abv, The London Gin is delicate and elegant on the nose with marked spicy and balsamic notes.

Soft, elegant and mellow on the palate, The London Gin gives way to a long finish with refreshing acidity, all of which adds up to a sophisticated, well-rounded gin that delivers in every area.

Delicious in a Gin and Tonic and other classic cocktails, The London Gin also comes into its own when drunk simply on the rocks.

This is a truly different gin that should not be used with slices of lemon as that kills the delicate flavour. The slight blue colour tinge is a real talking point and at 47% it packs a really great punch.

A really fragrant gin with lovely subtle bergamot and citrus finish. Super smooth but with plenty of flavour. The lovely blue colour is just an added bonus.

This gin has a nice citrous hit however the lasting taste is the bergamot making your mouth feel like you\'ve just glugged some iced earl grey tea. This is not to my taste, I\'ll be sticking to Sipsmith and Caorunn from now on.

This is a Must Have in your drinks cupboard. It is absolutely delicious - full of intense flavours, a proper strength you can TASTE and a wonderful colour. I thoroughly recommend this gin over any others. Even at the slightly hefty price I'll definitely be back for more.

A great taste. But what makes it different, is the colour. Even with tonic you can see the blue clouds, reminding of the sky on a warm day in spring.
