Fords London Dry Gin
Fords Gin is a collaboration between 8th generation Master Distiller Charles Maxwell of Thames Distillers and Simon Ford, dedicated to creating spirits designed in unison with professional bartenders and celebrated distillers from around the world.
A thoughtful mix of nine botanicals, Fords Gin starts with a traditional base of juniper & coriander seed balanced by citrus, florals and spices. Steeped for 15 hours before distillation, the botanicals deliver an aromatic, fresh and floral spirit with elegant notes of jasmine and grapefruit that creates a versatile base for any gin-inspired cocktail.
The journey to create Fords Gin began on cocktail napkins in the world’s greatest bars. As a “gin guru” with over 20 years of experience in the drinks business, Simon Ford found himself having countless conversations with fellow bartenders about the need for a go-to cocktail gin — a “Jack of All Trades”. Bartenders wanted a versatile spirit that could be used in any gin-based cocktail, no matter what ingredients the recipe called for.
The nine botanicals found in Fords Gin are sourced from Joseph Flach & Sons Ltd. who have been importing medicinal and culinary botanicals from around the world for London gin houses & tea companies since the days of the British Empire.
Each ingredient decidedly blends together to create a versatile base for any gin-inspired cocktail.
