Gin Brands

Origins of gin
The origins of gin can be charted back to the Netherlands in the 13th Century. Back in those days, gin was far from its modern incarnation. Known as genever, the drink was made by distilling malt wine to around 50% ABV (alcohol by volume), the drink wasn’t particularly drinkable, so it was softened with herbs and spices. Juniper berries were added to the drink for their supposed medicinal properties. Depending on how it was distilled, the resulting alcohol tasted similar to vodka or whiskey.

Genever has a long and proud Dutch history, with Gin being its direct descendant. All Vørdings spirits are distilled in Schiedam through the traditional process by skilled artisans. And that toasted cedar wood infusion? Vørding still chops, toasts and adds it by hand. Ensuring a premium product with a personal touch.

This authentic gin was based on the original 1689 recipe of the spirit made by the Dutch King William III (AKA William of Orange) after he was proclaimed King of England, Ireland and Scotland that very year. The recipe, which was amazingly uncovered in the British Library’s rare book section, lists the original ingredients but unfortunately, the quantities were concealed by code, which proved unbreakable.
Bobby’s Schiedam Dry Gin is named after our grandfather, Jacobus Alfons, known to his friends and family as Bob or Bobby. It was his recipe that inspired us. It took us almost two years to make Bobby’s, a very fine and balanced distilled gin. Eight botanicals all separately distilled. No additives, sugars or extractions. Simply pure taste. A fresh take on a timeless classic.
Sir Edmond Gin is founded on a simple idea: to create a gin that stands out and is truly different. Unique, versatile and full of character. In a long search for the ideal ingredients, destiny led the founders to the fantastic ingredient Bourbon vanilla, taking inspiration from Michelin star chefs who use Bourbon vanilla in their kitchen to create culinary magic. Bourbon vanilla is smooth and refined and the world’s most loved ingredient, they embraced this force of nature wholeheartedly.

The legendary sailor Knut Hansen is the face of our gin – an honest guy, who was not held up by anyone or anything, who took the freedom to see the places he always wanted to visit and who experienced countless adventures on his journey. To us producing a regional gin means using regional botanicals. Next to the obligatory juniper, we process apples from the farmers around Hamburg, and cucumber as well as basil come from our own cultivation.

Walks with Darcy (the distillery dog) through the meadows surrounding their distillery inspired William and Lucy Lowe to capture the taste of the English seasons. Using botanicals grown in and around their own home they created a recipe including juniper, fresh basil, rosemary, angelica, lemon verbena, blackcurrant leaf and rose petals, each individually distilled and expertly blended into this outstanding gin.
The world’s first digestif gin, created when our founders William and Lucy were presented with an after-dinner drinks list which didn’t include any white spirits. This luxurious spirit is led by white truffle from Alba, Piedmont – an ingredient which is worth more than gold per gram.
Cambridge Distillery’s Anty Gin is the result of a collaboration with the visionary thinkers of the Nordic Food Lab, and is the very first gin in the world to be made from insects. Each bottle of Anty Gin contains the essence of approximately 62 red wood ants, along with hand-foraged botanicals including juniper, wild wood avens and nettle that complement the sharp citrus notes created by distilling the ants.
The world’s first gin to focus solely on Japanese botanicals; our Master Distiller became enamoured with these exciting and unusual flavours, which were only accessible because of Cambridge Distillery’s low-temperature distillation processes.Japanese Gin is made using six botanicals: juniper, shiso leaf, sesame seeds, cucumber, sansho and yuzu: each distilled individually in a vacuum, then blended together for exceptional purity of flavour.
‘We set out to create the very definition of what a London Dry Gin should be; to do something very simple, but do it to perfection. With juniper at its core, we use fresh lime peel and a hint of pink peppercorns to create a classic benchmark expression that is balanced, dry and intensely refreshing. Lind & Lime Gin is forged from the talent, heritage and industry of Edinburgh and its historic distilling district of Leith. In everything that we produce, our watchword is ‘balance’ – Port of Leith Distillery
The Lakes Gin is our classic English gin with vibrant notes of juniper, cracked black pepper and orange peel. We elevate flavour by using only a select few botanicals, gently infusing them in the finest British wheat spirit, distilling in our traditional copper pot still and only drawing the purest water from our Lake District National Park home in a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Born under a hazy moon, LoneWolf rose from the ferocity of the Scots forest. Lavender and citrus notes run alongside a forage of feral pin needles, but it’s the fierce juniper backbone that stands this gin tall. Ingredients: Juniper, Scots pine, fresh grapefruit peel, fresh lemon peel, coriander seed, cardamom, angelica root, orris root, Thai lemongrass, pink peppercorn, kaffir lime leaf, mace, almond, lavender flower
