Named not for the shrub favoured by foragers hunting the hedgerows, but to differentiate the Blackthorn Cocktail from another of mixologist Harry Johnson’s inventions, a light-coloured concoction called the Thorn Cocktail. This cocktail is a slight variation on the classic Blackthorn cocktail, and is truly delicious…

London Dry Gin
A particularly dry gin with a zesty, citrus finish.
The quintessential expression of a classic London Dry Gin. Bold, complex and aromatic – smooth enough for a Martini, yet rich and balanced, perfect for a G&T.
Truly handmade, complex
& bursting with flavour.
First, we distil our award-winning London Dry Gin on our copper stills. Then we leave it to rest on wild sloe berries, picked in the autumn. The result is a truly handmade sloe gin that is subtle, complex and bursting with flavour.
