On our local foraging expedition, we discovered three ancient mulberry trees with their branches laden with ripe-to-burst mulberries. In fact, many of the oldest mulberry trees can be found in London, with some being traced back to the 5th Century when the Roman settlers brought this spectacular fruit to the UK and planted trees all along the River Thames. To extract the full rich flavour from the fruit, Head Distiller Ollie left the London mulberries to rest with our London Dry Gin for just shy of a fortnight.
