A lovely little dry gin made by Sloane's in the Netherlands. It is named after the 18th century botanist Sir Hans Sloane, who is said to have discovered many of the plants used to flavour gins today. A hearty handful of those botanicals have gone into Sloane's gin, including iris root, coriander, angelica root, cardamom pods, liquorice root and whole vanilla beans. Unashamedly inspired by the great gins of the past, Sloane's was created with a brief to be simply the finest gin available.

The main difference between Sloane’s Gin and other gins is that it’s hand crafted in small batches using a unique process that involves using fresh citrus fruits and individually distilling the botanicals resulting in a unique flavour profile that seduces the palate.

Unashamedly inspired by the great gins of the past, Sloane’s was created with a brief to be simply the finest gin available. Hand-crafted using individually distilled botanicals and fresh citrus fruits, Sloane’s achieved its goal by winning ‘World’s Best Gin’ at the prestigious San Francisco World Spirit Competition 2011.

In his quest for the perfect combination of botanicals to make his gin, Sloane’s master distiller and blender was struck by the scale and completeness of Sir Hans Sloane’s (1660-1753) personal botanical collection. This collection was amassed during his lifetime and formed the foundation of the British and Natural History Museum collections.

Sir Hans Sloane was Royal Physician, botanist, collector, and lifelong benefactor and landlord of the Physic Garden Chelsea – one of the UK’s foremost institutions for over 300 years for growing and experimenting in the use of plants and plant extracts for medicinal purposes, the first uses for juniper distillates – the forerunner of modern gin.

Undoubtedly of significant influence and inspiration to the early English gin distillers of the mid-18th century, Sir Hans Sloane’s botanical collection introduced to the UK the exotic botanicals juniper berries, fresh oranges & fresh lemons, orris root, angelica, cardamom, coriander, cassia bark, liquorice & vanilla which have formed the basis for flavouring gins ever since.
