Despite its young age FORDS GIN has found itself awarded quite a few times already.
Launched in September 2012, FORDS GIN is distilled in the heart of London at Thames Distillers.
A collaboration between 8th generation Master Distiller Charles Maxwell and Simon Ford of The 86 Co.
The gin, a mix of 9 botanicals, starts with a traitional base of juniper & coriander seed and is balanced by citrus (bitter orange, lemon & grapefruit peel), florals (jasmine flower & orris) and spices (angelica & cassia). The botanicals are steeped for 15 hours before distillation in 500 litre stills.
As with all The 86 Co. products, Fords Gin was tested in a myriad of gin cocktails.
The result, Crystalline and Flawlessly Rure, one of the best gins out there.
