Nelson's Rhubarb and Custard Gin uses the original recipe from the incredible Nelson's London Dry Gin, and infuses it with a wonderfully sweet natural rhubarb essence, this with the Madagascan vanilla botanical really brings out the custard flavour.

Whilst it is noticeably sweeter on the palate than the original Nelson's Gin this is still definitively a London Dry Gin, not a liqueur, so it isn't cloying or syrupy. In fact Nelson's has a remarkable clean, smooth taste which lets each botanical sing individually on the tastebuds.

This can be enjoyed neat as well as with tonic.

Nelson’s Gin has been created by one man; Neil Harrison.

Having worked extensively as a chef, Neil knew that a pleasing and memorable tasting experience depends on the combination of many factors; from an inspired balance of flavours through to presentation, context and the all-too-elusive creation of ambience; the vital ingredient which owes more to alchemy than any kind of practicality.

For over 200 years, no ship of the Royal Navy left port without its complement of Navy Strength Gin aboard. ‘Navy Strength’ meant that the spirit contained sufficient alcohol to still combust, should it be spilt onto gunpowder. Anything weaker would simply soak the powder, rendering it useless and the ship, defenceless. Gin had to pass the ‘proof’ test. And yet, it was an altogether subtler spirit which allegedly inspired Lord Nelson, a complex and aromatic gin produced only on the island of Menorca, at one time Lord Nelson’s base. Nelson’s Gin is named in honour of England’s greatest ever naval hero. Its flavour is also in homage to the grandfather of its inventor. An outstanding man by the name of Nelson James Harrison.

Neil spent two years researching and trialling the best combinations of botanical ingredients from around the world, attending a local gin school 7 times making 7 batches each time before finally mastering the final secret recipe for what is now Nelson’s Gin No.7.

Nelson's Rhubarb and Custard Gin takes the recipe for the original London Dry, infusing fine and pleasingly original botanicals from across the globe, such as lemongrass and kaffir lime leaves from Thailand, vanilla from Madagascar and cinnamon from Sri Lanka, and adds sweet, natural rhubarb essence.
