Ableforth’s signature, award-wining Gin is rich, velvety, and savory pleasure.

Atom Drinks Group was founded in 1996 by Justin Petszaft who — while working on his PhD program in Physics — started working at a local Single Malt Whisky shop in the UK. He eventually acquired the shop and set about bringing the business online, expanding operations, and recruiting a few of his childhood friends to join him. The business has expanded to develop and market their own line of signature Spirits. Their award-winning brands include Abelforth’s, Darkness, Origin, and nearly a dozen other Spirits.

Ableforth’s Bathtub Gin is consistently described with glowing terms. It is a Gin-lovers Gin made in a painstaking process that takes an entire week to complete. It starts with grain Spirit distilled in a brilliant copper pot still. But where other producers infuse all of the botanicals "hot" by allowing the Spirit vapors to pass through the botanicals, Ableforth’s knows that some botanicals just don’t like the heat. So the juniper, coriander, and other heat-tolerant herbs get the vapor treatment. But then six additional botanicals are cold-infused over the course of several days. This also means that the Gin is not perfectly clear… and that’s perfectly fine with us.

Smartass Corner: 
The term "bathtub Gin" came into use during Prohibition. It referred to small batch production of flavored Spirits using home-made equipment and improvised processes.

Appearance / Color
Faintly Tinted

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aroma leads with a pure, savory juniper that blooms into orange blossoms, cardamom, and distant florals.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
The palate is velvety, deep, and earthy — it knows that it is a Gin and is proud of that fact with more fragrant pine notes, cassia, orange zest, cinnamon, and fresh herbs.

Finish
The finish is long for a Gin, warm, and satisfying.

Juniper berry is the main ingredient of Gin. They are usually picked wild by independent workers throughout Europe and sold via distributors to Gin makers worldwide.
London Dry Gin is not always from London. Gin does not have the same geographical restrictions as Spirits such as Cognac, Scotch, or Tequila. Only a tiny handful of London Dry Gins are actually made in the city.
Few Gin distillers make their own alcohol. Gin usually starts with neutral Spirit: A commodity that distillers buy in bulk. It’s what the distiller does with this commodity in the flavor-infusing process that makes each Gin different.
Hardcore Gin lovers say the word Martini should never be preceded by Vodka, lobster, or pomegranate. They say the original and the only real Martini consists of Gin, Vermouth & olives, period!
Classifications of Gin: London Dry Gin, Plymouth Gin, Old Tom Gin, Genever or Dutch, New Western or new American or International style.
As producers try to develop new styles and flavors of Gin, to push the category and find a niche, the need for trying new methods of extracting flavors, as well as using more unusual botanicals, has grown.

One such way is the vacuum distillation method, when the redistillation of botanicals takes place in a vacuum.
