Conceived and distilled in South London (another gin from Thames Distillery), bottles of Sparrow are graced with the image of Ginger, apparently there to bestow good luck. Artist Jules Langran gave her just a hint of stocking top and a tattoo of a flying sparrow with a heart wrapped in blue ribbon.
Sparrow Gin is the concept of Tim Moore and his company, Analogue Spirits Ltd. It is based on wheat grain neutral spirit with 10 botanicals: juniper, coriander, grapefruit and sweet orange peel, Ivory Coast ginger, almond and four other botanicals which Tim is keeping to himself but which we guess includes angelica and orris root.
