Hammer and Son, intrigued by the historical use of botanicals, particularly juniper and geranium, and gins’ early medicinal purpose, set out to make a truly authentic gin.
The recipe calls for a range of 10 dried and fresh botanicals to be steeped in their Victorian still, with the finest grain spirit, for 48 hours. Geranium is an exquisite London Dry Gin whose botanicals, unsurprisingly, include geranium. A clean fresh palate, rightly led by juniper with strong citrus and aromatic tea-like floral notes adding to its considerable complexity. This gin blends fantastically with both sweet and dry mixers.
