Kew Explorer’s Strength Gin

From The London Distillery Company

In search of botanicals Kew’s botanists travelled the world alongside the British Navy. These journeys of exploration were treacherous, and a daily ration of high-proof gin was given to the explorers and officers to galvanise them on their voyage of discovery. This gin honours that tradition.

A curation of 15 botanicals originating from the furthest corners of the world come together, incorporating crashing waves of juniper, building into a balanced blend of coriander seed, combined with angelica, lemon, grapefruit, orange and bergamot zests, sweet floral notes from liquorice, orris, green  cardamom and passion flower and rounded with warmth from cinnamon and nutmeg followed by exotic spice from Sichuan pepper and cubeb.

  • Inspired by the Kew botanists who travelled alongside the British Navy
  • Their take on the classic juniper & coriander pairing
  • Citrus notes
  • Warm & Spicy from cinnamon, nutmeg, Szechuan pepper
  • Certified organic botanicals
ABV:57.3%
Nose:Juniper and a collection of citrus; grapefruit, lemon, and bergamot
