Gordon’s London Dry Gin

Multi-awarding winning classic, made to the same exacting standard as Alexander Gordon held in 1769, Gordon’s Gin is an unashamedly juniper-prominent gin: classic in a bold, fresh style. It is complemented by a sparkle of citrus and a gentle black pepper The spirit is rounded out by a luxuriously smooth texture and touch of sweetness. Gordon's London Dry Gin was developed by Alexander Gordon, a Londoner of Scottish descent. He opened a distillery in the Southwark area in 1769, later moving in 1786 to Clerkenwell. The Special London Dry Gin he developed proved successful, and its secret recipe remains unchanged to this day. The distinctively refreshing taste comes from the finest handpicked juniper berries and a selection of other botanicals. It's the taste that's made Gordon's the world's best-selling London Dry gin.    

Gordon’s Premium Pink Gin

Inspired by an original Gordon’s recipe from the 1880s, Gordon’s Pink is perfectly crafted to balance the refreshing taste of Gordon’s with the natural sweetness of raspberries and strawberries, with the tang of redcurrant served up in a unique blushing tone. Made using only natural fruit flavours to guarantee the highest quality real berry taste. Based on an original recipe from 1880, this gin is a delicate shade of rose pink. Gordon’s Pink has a luxurious creaminess that is the perfect complement to its complex array of fruitiness. Sweet and juicy strawberry is mixed with a little tartness of redcurrant and the tang of raspberry.

Gordon’s with a Spot of Elderflower

Gordon's London Dry Gin is combined with the delicate taste of elderflower for a delicious twist on a great British classic. Delicate Elderflower with Gordon's London Dry Gin A fresh, summery gin with delightful aromas of fragrant elderflower along with a bright and inviting berry note. A soft and elegant gin with a light sweetness and fruity, floral character. The finish is clean and dry with the lingering, classic character that Gordon’s is famous for. An excellent choice for a Gin & Tonic or for something a little lighter like a Gin & Soda.

Gordon’s Sloe Gin

Gordon’s Sloe gin, a British classic, was first released in 1906 and builds on centuries of tradition. Using hand-picked sloes form the UK and Northern Europe, the gin is a stunning shade of deep plum and has aromas of cherry, nectarine and marzipan. Rich and complex, with a luxurious tongue-coating texture. A harmony of bold fruit and tart berry flavours, rounded out by the dry, crisp juniper of the underlying gin and a light touch of residual sweetness. Gordons take the finest wild sloe berries and steep them gently, before adding Gordon's gin. The result is a wonderful tipple that marries the dryness of Gordon's with cassis sweetness – perfect in cocktails, as an alternative G&T, or simply on its own (but always with friends!). Prepared from wild sloe berries and Gordon's gin - Gordon's Sloe Gin is a traditional British treasure.

Ultra-premium gin Tanqueray Nº TEN is a liquid crafted through an unrelenting pursuit of perfection.
