Sloane’s Dry Gin is named for Royal Physician and Botanist, Sir Hans Sloane, whose work is said to be hugely important in the history of gin thanks to his discovery of many of the traditional, key botanicals. His botanical collection introduced to the UK the exotic botanicals juniper berries, fresh oranges and fresh lemons, orris root, angelica, cardamom, coriander, cassia bark, liquorice and vanilla which have formed the basis for flavouring gins ever since.
Sloane’s Dry Gin is made and bottled in the Netherlands. Dutch it may be, but Sloane’s Dry Gin is a far cry away from its ancestor, jenever; it is a delicate, citrus gin. Clean and light with a gentle play of tea and pine nuts but a good level of savoury notes, lots of liquorice and coriander. As the name suggests, this is a delightfully dry gin, with a citrus and juniper heavy finish.
