PLYMOUTH

Founded in 1793
Plymouth Gin launched in 1793, and has been made with the same botanicals, on the same site, ever since. Plymouth Gin is the only brand in the UK to have a PGI mark (Protected Geographical Indication), which means it can only be made in Plymouth.

This PGI also denotes that Plymouth is a style of Gin, as well as a brand. It is thought that the PGI was acquired (back in the 1880s) to protect the reputation of the brand which was supplying over 1,000 barrels of Gin to the British Royal Navy at the time.

Plymouth Gin is traditional in its botanical makeup (juniper, cardamom, coriander, angelica root, citrus peels and orris root), although less so in flavor. It’s a particularly smooth Gin due to the higher number of root botanicals, giving an earthier feel than a London Dry Gin. It works well in Martinis and Gin and Tonics alike.

What does Plymouth taste like?

The Flavour Spiral™ shows the most common flavours that you'll taste in Plymouth gin and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.

We invented Flavour Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.
