A strikingly smooth, small-batch English distilled classic London Dry gin.

Fifty Pounds Gin is produced by a highly respected, family-owned distillery located in the south-west of London, with a tradition of more than two centuries behind it. It is made in a legendary John Dore still where the finest, four times distilled neutral grain spirit is combined with the perfect balance of botanicals which are sourced from all over the world. Made in batches of around 1000 bottles at a time and bottled at 43.5% abv, Fifty Pounds is the quintessential London Dry gin and makes a hell of a Gin & Tonic served with Fevertree tonic and a zest of lemon.

Nose: Very classical with lemon, lime and piney juniper dominant. Palate: Silky smooth, crisp and fresh with a tickle of pepper on the mid-palate. Finish: Long and fresh with floral notes balancing the spice.

The name comes from the 'Gin Act of 1736', which was brought about by George II to curb the social degradation caused by the excessive production and consumption of 'gin', which had been encouraged by William of Orange, the previous monarch. The Gin Act of 1736 taxed gin at 20 shillings per gallon and made selling gin without a 50 pound annual license illegal. Fifty pounds Gin therefore takes its name from this act to show it's classical London Dry style and heritage.

Bought this gin to drink straight and also along with tonic and lime, has to be said it has a great depth of flavour and completely unique, one of my favourites along with Sloanes and Hendricks.
