A classic juniper-led London Dry Gin from Gilbey's. The brand was founded in London in 1857 by brothers Walter and Albert Gilbey in the basement of a retail shop on Oxford Street.
The famous recipe for Gilbey’s® Gin was born in nineteenth century England. It became such a popular gin throughout the world that a license to produce it in the United States was granted in 1938.
In making a fine London Dry Gin such as Gilbey’s, the fermentation process is similar to whiskey production. The fundamental difference is that the congeners, the natural taste elements that are so necessary to Bourbon and Scotch are absent. Instead, gin’s flavor is introduced to the alcohol when it is in a vaporous form and made to pass through a “filter” of juniper berries, herbs and spices.
12 ingredients create a smooth, dry, refreshing gin with a hint of citrus and the freshness of a cottage garden. Because this is such an aromatic Gin it works really well in Martinis.
Gilbey’s Gin is an exceptionally balanced, traditional and bold London Dry Gin. It is clear and colourless with a light floral juniper base aroma with hints of sweet orange. This gin has a clean, light and dry taste.
