"Crystalline and flawlessly pure... entry is pleasingly viscous and silky... easily one of the best gins reviewed over the last two years."
– Spirit Journal, December 2012
"A gin to be used as a workhorse for the cocktailian bartender."
– Simon Ford, The 86 Co.
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.
