A traditional London Dry made from a time-honored recipe.

The Finsbury Distillery Company was founded in London in 1740 by Joseph Bishop. Across its history the company made a range of Spirits from Liqueurs and Gins to Ginger Wine. But they are best known for their namesake line of Gins. The company was acquired in 1993 by the Germany-based Borco, but they largely leave the chaps at Finsbury alone to do what they have been doing for nearly three hundred years.

Finsbury London Dry Gin is made from the same 250-year-old recipe Joseph Bishop wass using. The botanical blend includes juniper, exotic fruits, herbs and carefully selected spices. This is a rich and elegant Gin that’s ideal for cocktails as it can stand against any mixer: make the good ol’ G&T or Finsburry Fizz and relax with your friends.

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.
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.
As with many other Spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as a medicine—to battle malaria.
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.
It’s a common myth that Gin is a tear-jerker. Of course, drinking too much of it will make you feel awful the next day, but that’s the same with any alcohol.
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!
