It’s aquamarine blue colour (achieved by using gardenia flowers and final infusion of bergamot oil) and hand-crafted production method make this Gin one of the most exclusive in the world. London No.1 Gin is triple distilled and crafted in small batches under expert direction of Master Distiller; Charles Maxwell – an eighth generation gin maker. Made from the highest quality English grain spirit from the sunny fields of Suffolk and Norfolk, UK.
The exceptional character of the London N°1 is a result of the perfect blend of 12 key botanicals from various parts of the world and distilled in traditional pot stills. Each botanical is specifically and meticulously selected to create a complex and sophisticated gin. Bergamot, Lily Root, Orange and Lemon peel from Italy, Savory and Angelica Root from the French Alps, Cinnamon and Cassia from Sri Lanka, Coriander from China, Juniper from Croatia, Almond from Greece and Liquorice from Turkey.
Upon tasting the gin, all the botanicals come into play with each passing second. First there is an intense warmth which rises through your mouth, which most likely comes from the cinnamon (without any kind of real cinnamon flavour). Then, cooler flavors of juniper, lemon and orange peel, as well as the subtle touch of liquorice tie the flavour of the liquor together and you can taste the sweetness at the back of your tongue as the effect of the spirit lifts after each sip. Savour the complexity of these botanicals by sampling this divine gin neat over ice.
