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.

Review and Tasting

Sampled before 1st May 2011


Crystal clear.


Cracked black pepper spirit aromas dominate until dilution (to approx. 40%) reveals generous coriander, woody juniper and citrus.


Clean, juniper palate with cleansing coriander seeds (candied ginger, lemon and sage taste) , citrus and Angelica root (musky, nutty).


Lingering juniper coupled with its sheer strength of alcohol and flavour scream
