The classic London Dry that started it all.

Boodles Gin helped define the London Dry style of Gin. But for years, you couldn’t get it in the UK. It all started at the Boodle’s Gentlemen’s Club located in the exclusive Saint James district of London. In 1845, the club came out with its own private-label Gin produced locally by Cock Russell & Company. Through a long series of mergers and acquisitions by the huge mega-corp Spirits companies, Boodles continued to be made in the UK, but was only available for sale in the US. Crazy, right? Anyway, the brand was purchased by Proximo Spirits in 2012 who have maintained the original formula and process — now produced at the Greenalls Distillery — and returned this historic Spirits to the UK and the world.

Boodles British Gin starts with a base of British wheat and the Spirit is distilled in a Carter Head copper still. Interestingly, the list of botanicals includes no citrus at all. The original makers assumed that a lime or lemon wedge would be used, making infusions unnecessary. But you will fine plenty of juniper along with nutmeg, sage, rosemary, angelica root, caraway seed, cassia, and a few additional components they keep secret. The point is to achieve that clean, dry, classic note that Boodles help invent all those years ago.


Smartass Corner:
The "Carter Head" still was developed with Gin in mind. It has a copper basket on top of the column where the botanicals are infused inline during primary distillation.

About the Flavor Spiral
What does Boodles Gin taste like?

The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Boodles Gin and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.

We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.

How much Tonic is in a Gin & Tonic? The ideal proportions for a perfect Gin & Tonic is one part Gin and two parts Tonic.
Classifications of Gin: London Dry Gin, Plymouth Gin, Old Tom Gin, Genever or Dutch, New Western or new American or International style.
Gin gets its dominant flavour from juniper berries. As with many other spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as medicine. Yeah right!
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.
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!
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.
