London meets Tokyo.

Cambridge, the home of the World's most distinguished universities and the place of a countless discoveries. It's where members of the British Royal Family, Prime Ministers and Nobel Laureates have received their education. What Cambridge missed was a distillery, and it wasn't until 2011 that one was established. The Cambridge Distillery, which is UK's smallest, employs 21st century technology to produce and perfect their magnificent Gin. They're the World's first Gin Tailor. What that means is that they produce bespoke Gin blends tailored for individuals, institutions and some of the World's leading restaurants. Taking your wishes and personal taste into consideration, they create something that fits your style exactly.

This is their first ever Japanese Gin. Well, it's Japanese in a sense that they use botanicals from Japan, but it's produced in Cambridge, England. The Japanese Gin combines the quintessential Juniper berries with traditional Japanese botanicals, such as Shiso leaf, Sanshō and Yuzu. Each of these botanicals is individually distilled by hand, under vacuum, in tiny volumes before being blended together and then distilled at low temperatures to capture the freshest possible flavors.

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.
While juniper-heavy Gin is perfect for your daily G&T, it is also complemented extremely well by tea flavours such as Earl Grey. Try steeping Earl Grey tea bags in Gin for an hour before mixing it with lemon juice and soda for a refreshing tipple. This one gets you additional kudos, so let’s keep it between us.
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.
Classifications of Gin: London Dry Gin, Plymouth Gin, Old Tom Gin, Genever or Dutch, New Western or new American or International style.
How much Tonic is in a Gin & Tonic? The ideal proportions for a perfect Gin & Tonic is one part Gin and two parts Tonic.
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.
