It takes a real man to wear pink, so don’t let the girlie color fool you … Edgerton Original Pink Dry Gin packs a 47% ABV wallop and a real Gin experience. 
 
Thames Distillers ltd. has been called London’s first craft distillery. And while Uncle Flaviar can either confirm nor deny claims of this nature, we can say authoritatively that Charles Maxwell knows his … thing or two about this business. He is the master distiller who founded Thames Distillers nearly 20 years ago in 1996. These days they make a wide range of products, some of which are white label operations for other nameplates. They also make their own branded products that they market accordingly. You will find their Gin-ny fingerprints on many of the most popular small-batch Gins, Vodkas, and a few other fiddly things, mostly available in the UK and EU markets. 
 
So … why is it pink? Well, a hundred years ago, they used to bottle a “pink Gin” that was traditional London Dry with a bit of Angostura Bitters added. Yep … it was pink. Edgerton Original Pink Dry Gin follows in that tradition, but in addition to their unique mix of 14 botanicals—including and very interesting Mexican damiana—the pop in a little pomegranate, thus the pink. Hey, there are blue, green, black, and amber colored Gins, so why not? 
 
Most Gin is bottled around 40%. If you don’t like the taste of good Gin, then it is easy to hide that 80-proof stuff under a mound of fruit chunks and ice that way. But here’s a little secret, if you actually want to taste your Gin in that Gin and Tonic, Aviation Cocktail, or Negroni, you just have to go with something a little stiffer. Edgerton Original Pink Dry Gin is not only up to the task here, but the hint of sour pomegranate does wonders in those classic Gin cocktails.

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.
