The spirit is then heated to 60-65°C for 15 minutes before being left to stand for 12 hours to allow the botanicals to steep prior to distillation. The gin comes over at around 84% alc./vol. and is reduced to bottling strength using Lydwell Spring water. This is a genuine London distilled, one shot gin – something of a rarity. ('two shot gins are distilled with twice the botanical recipe and then stretched after distillation by the addition of neutral spirit. The doubling up saves still time.)

(batch LDG/446) Crystal clear.
Clean, assertive fresh pine forest juniper with perfumed floral lilac, pine sap and lemon meringue.
Clean and led by piney juniper and coriander with zesty citrus and mild spice. Well-balanced and traditional London dry in style.
Rich old-fashioned liquorice becomes evident and coats the tongue to the end of the finish.
A classically London dry-style gin that's still made in London. What's not to like?
