Serving Suggestion The perfect basis for a gin and tonic, unquestionably one of life's great pleasures

Produced near Birmingham for over 200 years, Broker's has won more top awards over the past 10 years in International competitions than any other Gin. Ten traditional botanicals are used and quadruple distillation in a copper pot still results in a smooth palate. It delivers rich and creamy candied citrus fruit peel aromas and the finish gives the perfect balance of fresh botanicals with spicy juniper and sweet ripe citrus fruits.

The rich mixture of natural ingredients, each carefully selected, makes Broker's a drink of outstanding flavour and freshness. It is the perfect basis for a gin and tonic, unquestionably one of life's great pleasures.

Broker's is made from 100% English grain. It may have a quirky bottle but its status as a serious contender in the gin world is unquestionable.

The botanicals for Broker's Gin are: Juniper (Italy and Macedonia), Coriander (France), Orris (Italy), Nutmeg (Indonesia or West Indies), Cassia Bark (South East Asia), Cinnamon (Sri Lanka), Liquorice (Spain), Orange Peel (Spain), Lemon Peel (Spain), Angelica Root (France).

Country Of Origin: England

The distillery where Broker’s Gin is made is located near Birmingham, England and is over 200 years old. There had previously been a brewery on the site, but this was converted to a distillery at a time when gin-making became more profitable than beer-making.

The distillery uses only traditional pot stills. Continuous distillation using column stills is more efficient and is used by the major brands, but pot stills are better for extracting maximum flavour from the botanicals in a traditional hand-crafted fashion.

The distillery has a mini-still, which is used for making small batches of gin from different recipes. The recipe for Broker’s Gin is 200 years old and was chosen after taste-testing against several newer recipes.

The copper pot still used for producing Broker’s Gin is named “Constance” and was manufactured by John Dore & Co, long recognised as the finest still-maker in the world.

The base spirit for Broker’s Gin is quadruple-distilled pure grain spirit made from English wheat. The flavour is provided by ten natural botanicals, the primary one of which is juniper berries – as in all gins. The botanicals are steeped – soaked – in the base spirit in the still for 24 hours. This is the first part of the flavour-infusion process. The still is then fired up for the final, fifth distillation, which completes the process.
