Big Seven London Dry

Description

This is the Gin that started it all for us. In the early days we tried countless different variations of botanicals until we landed on this perfect mix and we knew straight away it was the one. Big Seven London Dry is a complex, smooth Gin that carries and explosion of flavour with one hell of a finish.

Taste

Big Seven is complex and well balanced Gin which begins with a strong and sharp Juniper flavour. The Lemongrass and Grapefruit Peel ensure the taste of the gin is light and citrusy throughout and the Bay Leaf keeps is fresh. Chamomile gives a beautiful long lasting floral finish with Angelica Root and Cassia Bark keeping the whole taste warm and rich throughout.

Botanicals

As the name states this Gin is distilled with no less than seven botanicals which are Juniper, Lemongrass, Angelica Root, Cassia Bark, Chamomile, Grapefruit Peel & Bay Leaf.

Serves

A very versatile gin owing to the many taste qualities it holds. Big Seven makes a strong and hearty G&T. The citrusy warmth pairs it beautifully with Campari in a Negroni but where it really shines is in the daddy of all cocktails – a Martini. Top Tip: Dirty the Martini with a peated whisky to really bring it to life.
