Thomas Dakin Gin is a Manchester creation, named for the forefather of quality, British gin.
The eponymous Thomas Dakin began distilling in the 18th century and eventually went on to sell his recipes and distillery to the Greenall family almost a century later. With nods to the Dakin family, their businesses and heritage as well as the industrial history of the northern England; Thomas Dakin Gin is a small batch distillery working to bring back gin to the North.
Thomas Dakin is a deliciously traditional, juniper forward gin. The sweet orange and citrus notes found on the palate contrast nicely with the smooth and savoury finish created by the cubebs and red cole, a kind of horseradish.
