A small batch gin with tonnes of flavour; Fifty Pounds Gin is strong and punchy but surprisingly smooth.
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.
Fifty Pounds blasts onto the pallate with 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.
