English Seacoast-Inspired Gin Makes State Debut

By December 30, 2020Connecticut, Top News

Fishers London Dry Gin’s botanical lineup includes cardamom, caraway and fennel seed, along with rarer coastal plants bog myrtle, rock samphire, wood avens and spignel. The resulting spirit is herbal and saline, then the addition of citrus peel gives a fresh, zesty brightness to the gin.

MD&S Distributors added new U.K. import Fishers London Dry Gin. Distilled on the Suffolk coast using herbs and botanicals found along the nearby coastline sourced by botanist James Firth, Fishers London Dry Gin is inspired by the English seaside. At 44% ABV, Fishers combines rare Old English herbs and botanicals such as spignel, bog myrtle, wood avens and rock samphire, reflecting a passion for nature and the wild and forgotten flavors of the English coastline. The carefully prepared roots, leaves, seeds and berries are steeped in the base spirit for 24 hours and then receive a final distillation in the copper pot. This process uses the one-shot method at the end of the distillation, taking the best, or the “heart,” cut of the distillate only, creating a flavorful, full-bodied and aromatic gin. Located on Crag Path in Aldeburgh, overlooking the North Sea, Fishers Gin is the closest distillery to the coast in the U.K.
