City of London Dry Gin is really, really good from the stiff upper lip to the first lovely sip.    
 
 
The City of London Distillery is as much a bar as it is a producer of quality adult beverages. Actually, to be accurate, they opened a distillery "in" a bar on December 20th, 2012… Johnathan Clark’s cocktail bar on Bride Street, London, to be precise. As you may imagine, if you open a distillery literally "inside" an operating cocktail bar, you do NOT have 30,000-gallon tanks. These guys are a micro-distillery from the get-go. 
 
Don’t get us wrong, these guys bought top-end equipment — professional-grade copper pot-stills from Germany. But they hold about 50 liters at a crack, so it will be quite a while before you find bottles of their quality hooch at the MegaMart. And with a name like "The City of London," you better represent! And REPRESENT they do, producing five signature Gins in all of their classic juniper-licious glory
 
City of London Dry Gin is — as you might expect — a spot-on, faithful reproduction of a classic London Dry style recipe. Anything else would be improper. Sure, the good chaps at the City of London Distillery make a range of Gins, but you ALWAYS start with the basics. And this London Dry Gin is really, really good from the stiff upper lip to the first lovely sip. 
 
The herbal infusions are just what you want: juniper, angelica, licorice, coriander seed, and a medley of citrus zests. Have you been to London yet? The entire town drips with tradition and culture. City of London Dry Gin tastes like you are standing in a bright red phone booth on a foggy day while a double-decker bus drives by… oh, and you had fish and chips for lunch at the pub while reading "The Times" and wearing a bowler hat.

Gin was so cheap and popular in London in the first half of the 18th century, an epidemic of drunkenness engulfed the city. There were 7,000 Gin shops by 1730 and wasted Londoners fell victim to acts of violence and widespread addiction. The government had to step in with an emergency legislation to stop the so-called "Gin Craze".
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.
Is Gin gluten free? Sort of. While Gin is made from a grain Spirit, which could include wheat, barley or even rye, some experts say that it’s still suitable for those on gluten-free diets due to being distilled. The distillation process removes enough of the gluten protein in the drink to make it gluten-free. But proceed with caution.
The Gin Act of 1751, which increased taxes and restricted retail, essentially lead to the demise of London's 'Gin Craze'. There were very few distilleries, and none at all in the city of London for almost 200 years, until the launch of the City of London Distillery.
