Size 70cl
ABV 41.3%
Serving Suggestion Serve with lots of ice and a wedge of fresh pink grapefruit.

A modern London Dry style gin with big, grapefruity citrus notes from the City of London Distillery. 

Crystal clear in appearance, this is a clean and characterful gin, punctuated with the piney aroma of juniper, zesty pink grapefruit, orange and lemon.  There are also subtle notes of celery, sage and parma violet.  Piney juniper, citrus and subtle peppery spice linger on the palette after tasting.

The peppery aftertaste is best served with tonic water, lots of ice and a wedge of fresh pink grapefruit.

Country Of Origin: England

The City of London has a rich gin history. During the Gin Craze in the 18th century there was a gin distillery or gin shop in every street in the City benefiting from the spices and citrus fruits coming in to the port of London. The Gin Craze was ended, very few gin distilleries survived, and for nearly 200 years there wasn’t a single gin distillery in the City. That is until the City of London Distillery opened in 2012.

Over these 200 years gin distilling techniques improved, and gin became more refined with more subtle flavours. Gin was big business and London Dry Gin became the most popular type of gin. Then came the next gin revolution with the advent of the small-batch micro-distilleries, bringing variety, interest and experimentation; new botanicals, new combinations, new gins.

The City of London Distillery opened on 20th December 2012 inside Jonathan Clark’s cocktail bar in Bride Lane, within the City of London. This was the first gin, loyal to the distillery’s roots, a classic London Dry Gin - relaunched in 2016 at a higher strength of 41.3%.
