Fifty Pounds Gin
The makers of Fifty Pounds Gin have brought to life a gin recipe created and so-named as to mock the “50 Pound” levy that the crown sought to distill on the thousands of home distillers in England during the gin craze during the 18th century. The recipe created and then locked away (so the legend says) was only recently brought back to life by John Dore & Co. Limited who did so in trying to respect the original recipe’s intentions.
Lemon, lime and juniper. Very classic in character. Opens with juniper, followed by lemon, coriander and angelica. Hint of spice, with citrus blossoming in the middle. Dry, palate cleansing finish with a touch of heat.
Try fifty on the rocks - add a wedge of lime for ultimate freshness.
