This turquoise-blue gin, marketed as "The Original Blue Gin" was originally named ‘The London Gin’ in deference to its being distilled at London’s Thames Distillery. However, due to the addition of colour/flavour post distillation, E.U. spirits regulations precluded the use of the term ‘London Gin’.
Made with English grain neutral spirit redistilled with 12 botanicals: juniper, liquorice, orris root, cinnamon, almond, bergamot, savory, coriander, angelica root, cassia, lemon peel and orange peel.
