A viscous gin with fresh flavours of coriander & citrus.
Citrus oils excite the side palate beautifully.
Fords 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 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.
"At 90 proof Fords Gin holds in a lot of flavor. When tasting, we recommend a splash of water to release the flavours. You'll notice the high oil content just by looking in the glass. The coriander, citrus and florals really come to life. It's also a good way to see how Fords gin will show in a cocktail."
