Thomas Dakin Gin is a juniper-led gin with zesty notes of sweet orange and fresh citrus, enlivened by an infusion of distinctive red cole, a savory root botanical, which gives our gin its delicious, long, lingering finish.
This classic-style, single london dry gin is made the traditional way, not from essence like back in 1761. It is handcrafted using the finest, carefully selected botanicals, which are added by hand to our grain-neutral spirit with denmineralized water inside our baby copper pot still.
