No apples, just oranges — a Gin with a citrussy twist.

When Johnny Neill found a dusty collection of bottles under the stairs of his grandma's house, his family legacy finally began to crystallize. Turns out they've been distilling Gin since 1762! With some guidance from his grandmother and plenty of mad-scientist-like enthusiastic experimentation he concocted an epic recipe. We're familiar with the usual suspects — juniper berries, coriander, dried citrus peels etc. But he took it a step further with the addition of the baobab fruit and cape gooseberry, providing an exotic South African twist — a nod to his wife's homeland. Naturally, the exact recipe is a closely guarded secret. Hey, once you've garnered the kind of awards this Gin has, you need to keep your mouth shut. Oh, did I mention their century-old copper pot still, lovingly nicknamed "Constance?" If only stills could talk...

I bet this one would love to tell a tale about those Sicilian blood oranges they put in their Blood Orange Gin! This variation gets its zesty fruitiness from one botanical in particular — you guessed it — a lot of citrus fruit, not limited to, but certainly including Sicilian oranges in spades. Ah, Sicily. A touch of that Mediterranean sun just makes everything better and these Liverpudlians know it.

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.
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.
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.
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!
Gin gets its dominant flavour from juniper berries. As with many other spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as medicine. Yeah right!
