Fords London Dry Gin
In the Glass
Brilliant, crystal clear.
The juniper steps up and takes center stage followed by a toasted coriander note supported by the angelica with citrus, floral jasmine, and lavender.
The palate is in full accord with the nose delivering a lush and oily center palate with juniper and citrus in the lead creating a slightly sweet core that becomes quite dry on the finish.
Intensity & Texture
Medium-bodied with ideal balance and a texture that far surpasses most in its class.
I have been a fan of the Fords Gin since its release finding the trifecta of smart packaging, optimal price point, and undeniable quality and pleasure to be a winning formula.
At $25 a bottle this premium Gin is in the top tier of the quality to dollar equations.
The Fords Gin is created at the prolific Gin specialist Thames Distillery by a collaboration of Master Distillery Charles Maxwell and Simon Ford of The 86 Co. Nine botanicals seamlessly marry in the Fords Gin while the Italian juniper and coriander seed are primary. The subtle but vital notes are provided by the following: bitter oranges, lemon and grapefruit peel, jasmine, orris, angelica root, and cassia bark. These botanicals are steeped for 15 hours before distillation in small 500 liter stills. Another very unique aspect of this tasty and stylish Gin is that it is shipped in bulk at full strength and then cut with water from a well in Mendocino County, CA. Most importantly, it’s damn good.
How to Enjoy
The Fords Gin is the perfect candidate for your classic Gin Martini as the vibrant flavors and silky texture nearly demand a starring role in any cocktail.
