Alcohols Limited / Langley Distillery Brands:

Palmers Distillers Cut

A stunning one shot blend of 15 botanicals that have infused overnight to produce a unique gin. Early notes of juniper and coriander end up mingling with your taste buds leading to a mixture of herbs and spices with just a subtle hint of dryness. Sumptuous fresh and floral crispness coming from lily bulb and iris roots completes a subtle and smooth lingering finish.

Palmers London Dry Gin

The Palmers secret is our distinctive blend of seven carefully selected botanicals – a covert recipe kept close to the heart and safe by Angela’s son Adam and granddaughter Natalie. Each botanical is expertly weighed out by hand and placed, in a specific order, into the aptly-named still ‘Angela’ along with water and British wheat spirit. The mix of juniper berries, coriander seeds, cassia bark, liquorice root, angelica root, orris root and grapefruit are left to infuse overnight before being gently warmed to allow the botanicals to release their essential oils. During distillation the still Angela – a spirited lady – is nurtured to ensure only the heart of the spirit goes into Palmers gin. The resulting gin is pure grace, full in flavour, dry with a wonderful grapefruit curl that leaves you wanting more.
