City Of London Christopher Wren London Dry Gin 45.3% 70cl
Launched in 2012, an 'Authentic London Dry Gin' by the City of London Distillery was the first gin distilled in England's capital city for over 200 years - the Christopher Wren release saw the ABV increased from 40.3 to 45.3% to add a bit more bite on the finish.
This is a simple gin in all the best ways. Just seven botanicals are used - juniper, coriander seed, angelica root, liqourice root and peels of orange, lemon and grapefruit. It's crisp and clean, with a soft mouthfeel that calms the spiciness of the first four botanicals in that list to allow the citrussy elements to rise up. Some gin purists might argue there's not enough depth and complexity to this gin, but sometimes you just want a really good gin without any bells and whistles, that will complement pretty much every tonic out there, but also work as a great base for more extravagant gin-based cocktails. This is that gin. And honestly, I think this is SUCH good value for money given that loads of gin around a similar price point tend to go way over the top on the juniper, or just taste like paint stripper.
AND it looks good too. Double bonus!
