Since the break-up of Seagram, who acquired Burnett’s White Satin in 1963, this brand has been around the block. In 2002 the American firm Heaven Hill purchased worldwide production and distribution rights (excluding Japan) and dropped the ‘White Satin’ from the name.
There have been claims that this gin was first made by the Lord Mayor of London. Burnett’s Gin White Satin Gin was created by Sir Robert Burnett but he never held the mayoral office. Sir Robert Burnett joined the company that came to bear his name in 1770, established his gin, then became Sheriff of London in 1794 and was knighted the following year. There is a requirement for a Lord Mayor of London to have previously served as a Sheriff but Robert Burnett never went on to hold the mayoral office.
In the UK Burnett Gin was produced by Whyte & Mackay in Scotland but since 2007, White Satin Gin has been bottled by West Lothian-based Broxburn Bottlers.
