Since 1759 the respected botanists of the Royal Botanic Gardens. Kew have been pioneers of plant hunting, exploring the world alongside the British navy. On the treacherous journeys, a daily ration of high-proof gin was given to these explorers and officers.
A tribute to the botanists from the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew, who sailed the world to bring back new and exotic plants.
- On the nose, juniper and collection of citrus - grapefruit, lemon and bergamot, with a hint of spice from the cardamom.
- On the palate there's warming spice notes from cinnamon, nutmeg and cubeb pepper following the juniper and a lingering hint of szechuan pepper on the tip of the tongue.
- 15 different botanicals, with an emphasis on blending the citrus notes and spice, it's smooth enough to drink over ice with a grapefruit twist, or to make a gin and tonic full of character.
Presented in a beautiful gift box featuring artwork inspired by plant drawings in Kew's archives. The print work on the box uses vegetable oil-based inks and water-based varnish which have not been tested on animals. As such, some minor rubbing and smudging may occur in transit.
