Juice from the oldest working Gin distillery in England.

Right there on the cobbled streets of the Plymouth harbor lies an old building that is said to have been built in the early 1400s. Once supposedly a monastery, the Plymouth Gin Distillery, also known as the Black Friars Distillery, has been in operation since 1793, making it the oldest Gin distillery in England. It is there that Master Gin Distiller Sean Harrison crafts delicious Spirits using their 200-years-old recipe that is passed down verbally to each new Master Distiller.

Naturally, he's tight-lipped about the ratios, but the 7 botanicals that go into the grain Spirit are known: Juniper berries bring the pine aromas and bitterness, coriander seeds balance it with citrus aromas and spice, orange & lemon peels for that fruity zestiness, angelica root for its menthol notes, green cardamom for its dryness and sweetness, and orris root to round it all off. A touch sweeter than your London Dry, Plymouth Gin has won countless awards for good reason.

How much Tonic is in a Gin & Tonic? The ideal proportions for a perfect Gin & Tonic is one part Gin and two parts Tonic.
In 1620, the Pilgrim Fathers spent their last night in England at the distillery buildings before embarking on the Mayflower’s epic voyage to America. The Mayflower still forms part of Plymouth Gin’s label to this day.
Classifications of Gin: London Dry Gin, Plymouth Gin, Old Tom Gin, Genever or Dutch, New Western or new American or International style.
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.
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.
As with many other Spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as a medicine—to battle malaria.
