Ford's Spirit & Spice Dry Gin 70cl
Ford's Spirit & Spice Dry Gin is distilled in London at Thames Distillers, and is a collaboration between 8th generation Master Distiller Charles Maxwell and Simon Ford of The 86 Co. The base spirit for Fords Gin is a continuously distilled neutral grain spirit made from English Wheat. The mix of 9 botanicals starts with a traditional backbone base of juniper & coriander seed that's balanced with citrus (bitter orange, lemon & grapefruit peels), floral (jasmine flower & orris) and spice (angelica & cassia). The botanicals are steeped for 15 hours before distillation in 500 liter stills.
Fords gin botanicals are sourced from Joseph Flach & sons who have been importing medicinal and culinary herbs and spices to London for over 125Read more...
years. "Fords is a juniper-forward gin but with a good amount of citrus, sweet spices and florals to take the bite off of the juniper, but still add complexities and allow the juniper to be the star. It's also a gin that works well with both lemon and lime citrus cocktails and has a really nice oil content for martini's" - Simon Ford, The 86 Co.
