This Old English Gin is made from a 1783 recipe distilling 11 botanicals (Juniper, coriander, lemon, orange, angelica, cassia, liquorice, cinnamon, orris root, nutmeg, cardamom) in the oldest pot still being used in England at present day, called Angela or Grand Ma (named of the mother of the master distiller at that time). And made by John Dore Ltd. from some of the last British copper.
I wanted to create this unique product, being as original and true to a spirits category as possible, and yet in line with today’s requirements for high quality, environmental friendly and CO2 neutral products. And by using a traditional champagne bottle, organic sealing and silk printed label as they did in 1783, we are emphasizing the concept of how English Gin tasted and was made, named and distributed back then.
So to taste a cocktail as it was intended, you need a Gin that hasn’t changed. Old English Gin is how it was: Truly original!
