London Dry Gin is today the pinnacle of all gin varieties. The strictest regulations regarding production and quality prevail here. Compared to other gin variants, no artificial flavors or sugars are added. All flavors and taste substances come exclusively from the botanicals used during the distillation process. But it wasn't always this way.
The history of London Dry Gin dates back to the 18th century in England.
Gin was initially used as medicine, as it was believed that the addition of juniper berries could aid digestion and promote the healing of certain diseases. Gradually, gin evolved into a popular alcoholic drink throughout England.
Over time, London became a hub for gin production. Distilleries in the city produced various types of gin, which were initially often made with inferior ingredients and questionable production methods. This led to a concerning rise in alcohol consumption and social problems, which went down in history as the "Gin Craze."
To address this, legal measures were taken to regulate the quality of gin. In 1751, the Gin Act was passed, which more closely monitored the production and sale of gin. This led to the introduction of licensing fees for distilleries and improved production standards.
With purpose and intention, we have therefore chosen to distill only the very best quality, and that is "London Dry Gin."
