Fifty Pounds Gin

GIN014

£35.50

Quick Overview

Today Fifty Pounds Gin is distilled in small quantities, and in single batches. Classic citrus and juniper aromas and flavours lead, the palate is smooth and develops into a herbal mix of botanicals. Sometimes you don't need gimmicks, well maybe in the name and the bottle, but inspite of this, Fifty Pounds Gin has just been done really, really well.

Details

In 1736 a Gin Act was introduced by George II to try and halt the excessive consumption of gin that was taking place at the time. An annual levy of £50 was imposed on those wishing to produce and sell gin. Only two distilleries agreed to pay the tax! Shortly after the Gin Act 1736 a family of independent London distillers came up with an original gin recipe, known ironically amongst themselves as ‘Fifty Pounds’ in honour of the Gin Act levy, which was characterised by its particular smoothness and flavour.
