If ever there was a Gin that served as an institution of London style, this is it.

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.

The original Finsbury Gin was made on a molasses-based Spirit. But they created Finsbury Platinum Gin to step things up a notch… several notches, in fact. It is based on a neutral Grain Spirit distilled six times for exceptional smoothness and purity. The recipe is a closely guarded secret, but it is crafted in the traditional style of London Dry. You’ll find that it is bottled strong for a Gin at 47% ABV. They insist that it is that precise proof that adds an intensity to the juniper and other botanicals. And raving fans agree. It is a premium Gin sought-after on the craft cocktail circuit.

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aroma is lifting with notes of bright juniper, a dash of anise, raspberry, coriander, and fresh herbals.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
The palate opens up slightly sweet with juniper and citrus zest immediately to the fore supported by florals, more coriander, orris, and black peppercorn.

Finish
The finish is long for a Gin with glowing embers of juniper, anise, and pepper.

How much Tonic is in a Gin & Tonic? The ideal proportions for a perfect Gin & Tonic is one part Gin and two parts Tonic.
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.
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.
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.
