Aged: No age statement

The Finsbury Gin brand name was founded by Joseph Bishop back in 1740 and is possibly a reference to Clerkenwell springs which was once the centre of London's gin industry and part of the old London Borough of Finsbury. Today Finsbury Gin is owned by a German company, Borco International.

Finsbury London Dry Gin is based on molasses neutral spirit rather than grain spirit and is distilled in Langley Distillery's still N0.7, a 10,000 litre copper pot still by the name of Jenny.
