By the 1950s and 60s citrus gins were all the rage and made by several London Distilleries. So in the spirit of where old meets new, and adding a little inspiration from our triple juniper technique for V.J.O.P, Ollie and Jared experimented with multiple dimensions of lemon. This recipe takes a classic London Dry backbone (which already includes dried Seville lemon), vapour infused fresh lemon for bite, lemon verbena from Jared's garden for aromatic sweetness, and lemon myrtle (what cassia bark is to cinnamon) to dial up the zing. Each batch is also laced with a twist of fresh lemon. The result: naturally sweet gin that unequivocally reminds us of Mary Berry's very best lemon drizzle.
A glaze of biscuity sweetness, reminiscent of the golden crisp top of a lemon drizzle cake.
Fresh, zesty, warming zing of lemon and coriander seed.
A superbly sweet finish of aromatic liquourice.
