This Gin is beautiful in its’ bottle and also in taste. From the picturesque town of Harrogate, its’ creators have done well to create a Gin that captures the essence of the beautiful town. The London Dry was launched in 2015 and carries ingredients of the well water from the natural spring of the Tewit Well in Harrogate.

What I learnt was that this Gin uses 24 botanicals, mostly sourced in Harrogate. The botanicals consist of Rhubarb, milk thistle, nettle, oregano, primrose, lovage, sage and a light green tea scented with jasmine blossom. Therefore, sounds like it is good for the soul. This Gin is one of my favourites of the year, a real burst of flavours leaving the mouth pleasantly smoothly refreshed!

botanicalsEnjoy straight with a premium tonic water on ice with a slice of apple or blueberries. There are many garnishes to choose from you to compliment this and many other gins. For example, orange, lemon, lime, mint, cucumber, ginger, mint, grapefruit and many more.

Straight from the Harrogate Gardens, this is Gin-tastic!
