The East India Company London Dry Gin
For the true gin explorer… The pioneering East India Company and history of gin is inextricably linked.
From the original East India Company ships returning to port ladened with exotic botanicals and rare spices, so vital for a London Dry style gin. To the ingenuity of those early company officers living in India who added water, sugar, lime with a splash of gin to quinine, making a palatable concoction to ward off malaria, and so creating the famous G & T.
Today’s East India Company is proud to offer explorers the opportunity to discover the delightful fusion of East and West botanicals with tonic or set their own way.
Distilled and produced in London, UK for the East India Company Gin Limited.
