No.3 Dry London Gin

No3 Dry London Gin

This new brand of gin is really something special: not only has it been created as the perfect gin for a Dry Martini, but it was also developed with Dr David Clutton, one of the world authorities in gin (this man has a PhD relating to gin production – the best PhD on record, we think) for Berry Brothers & Rudd, Britain’s oldest wine and spirit merchants. While we love Gordon’s for an everyday G&T, this gin, which comes in a beautiful bottle, is the best we’ve tried by a long chalk. It’s really something special. Delivered hand wrapped in paper, it has a cork rather than a screw top, and makes a wonderful noise when it opens (try the sound file above to hear it). It’s a blend of six botanicals and has a strong juniper hit.

They have kindly shared three gin-based cocktail recipes with us – we hope you enjoy them. To find out more about No.3 Dry London Gin, visit www.no3gin.com. It’s available in Selfridges, Sainsbury’s, Waitrose and the best bars in the UK and costs £33.99 per bottle.
