The name comes from the time of George II and the 1736 Gin Act, when a 50 pound tax was levied on those wishing to produce and sell gin. The story goes that the ancestors of the makers of this fine gin, created a gin recipe which they ironically named ‘Fifty Pounds’. The current version of Fifty Pounds Gin is said to be taken from that recipe.
A small batch gin with tonnes of flavour; Fifty Pounds has juniper, spearmint and almond essence top notes with mixed citrus peel and star anise below. A very smooth gin with a slight mint and eucalyptus finish.
