The London Distillery Company has looked far into the past to create its latest limited-edition gin — all the way back to the 1800s — for a new interpretation of the classic Old Tom style.
To create its version of this traditionally sweeter style of gin, the Battersea-based distillery first aged the original Dodd's Gin for six months. This was then infused with liquorice, ginger and other spices.
The gin is the fourth limited-edition it has created with Fortnum & Mason, marking the third anniversary of the collaboration.
'We’ve seen fantastic support from drinks fans all around the world over the last three years,' said Darren Rook, founder of the distillery. 'We continue to hand bottle and label the gin and is a real labour of love.'
In retail channels the gin is exclusive to Fortnum & Mason (RRP £45), but there is limited availability to the UK on-trade. Email The London Distillery Company to be one of the few to put this on your back bar.
