Fords botanicals being mixed before distillation.
Our nine botanical mix is steeped for 15 hours before distillation. This process helps to soften them and bring out their flavour.
The botanical mix starts with a traditional base of juniper & coriander seed and is balanced by citrus (bitter...

The botanical mix in a gin will come to life when stirred over ice, chilled and slightly diluted. Fords has an exceptionally high botanical oil content, which makes for a great martini.
In the Fords Gin botanical mix, juniper pairs well with lemon, orange and olive, while Angelica works well with...
Fords was created to be a jack-of-all trades gin that worked exceptionally well in cocktails. The botanicals were chosen with care, and the recipe was not finalized until it was tried in classic gin cocktails. : @countrywineandspirits

Blueberry Black Tea Syrup
Fever Tree Tonic
The name Gin is derived from either the French genièvre or the Dutch jenever, which both mean juniper.
The botanical mix in Fords is comprised of 49.5% juniper. We source our juniper from Italy for its wonderfully soft character.

Each Martini is unique which is what makes it such a special cocktail.
Even with the same ingredients, different ratios on Gin and Vermouth and different garnishes can change the flavor dramatically. Different moods can even call for different recipes!
What’s your favorite?
A 3:1 Fords martini is hitting the spot today.

Fords Gin was brainstormed and created to be a jack of all trades Gin.
When Simon created the recipe, he wrote down all the classic gin cocktails, and broke them down by flavour profile. He then paired these flavours with the botanicals that are now found in Fords Gin.
The result was a London Dry...

Featured in Harry Craddock’s 1930 The Savoy Cocktail Book, the gimlet is a very simple cocktail with gin and lime cordial.
Many bartenders today opt for fresh lime and a dash of simple syrup, but with a quality lime cordial you can stir up a gimlet similar to the original recipe.
One thing we like to do is pre-make our martinis, and store a bottle or two in the fridge.
This makes for a great party preparation, or if you want a quick solution for yourself that you can store awhile!

The nine botanicals used to make Fords were selected to pair with flavors in classic cocktails.
Juniper pairs well with lemon, orange and olive while Angelica works well with vermouth. These two give you a good base for a delicious martini gin.
Jasmine Flower tastes great with...
Fords Gin is a mix of nine botanicals, 49.5% of the mix being juniper.
When Fords is stirred and diluted, essential oils from the botanicals are released.
What a classic gin martini lacks in ingredients, it certainly makes up for in flavour. Fords was made with the martini in mind.
Ever wondered what makes a Gin ‘Gin’?
A gin is a neutral spirit flavored with botanicals such as seeds, fruits and roots. Essential oils within the botanicals combine with alcohol to give intentional character.
There are no limitations on the amount of botanicals you can use, however... the largest...
