A tasty Gin that's pretty in pink.

The Thames Distillery was founded in 1996 by Charles Maxwell who was an 8th-generation Gin distiller. Today, the distillery produces around 60 Gins for different brands – everything from international brands to small-scale operations for bars. Distilled at the Thames Distillery and bottled in Spain, Mombasa Gin is one of those premium brands.

Inspired by a 19th century private social club in Kenya that imported English Gin for its members, Mombasa Strawberry Gin is a London Dry Gin with a twist on the original recipe. It’s still triple-distilled for delicate smoothness but it’s then infused with real strawberries and other red fruits. The pretty pink hue is perfect for your summer cocktails and so are the sweet, juicy, and bold fruity flavors.

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.
Gin gets its dominant flavour from juniper berries. As with many other spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as medicine. Yeah right!
As with many other Spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as a medicine—to battle malaria.
The Thames Distillery houses two stainless steel stills, called Tom Thumb and Thumbelina, each with a 500-liter capacity.
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.
