Fords Gin is a collaboration between 8th generation master distiller, Charles Maxwell of Thames Distillery, and Simon Ford of The 86 Company. With the help of professional bartenders and distillers from around the world, Fords Gin was created to be a versatile base for any gin-inspired cocktail. With a mix of nine botanicals, Fords Gin has a traditional base of juniper and coriander seed balanced by citrus, floral and spice led botanicals. Steeped for 15 hours before distillation, the botanicals deliver an aromatic, fresh and floral spirit with elegant notes of jasmine and grapefruit.
Nose: Plenty of juniper with soft spice and citrus peels.
Taste: Floral jasmine notes and zesty grapefruit backed by plenty of juniper.
Finish: Juniper gives way to coriander and notes of cinnamon and nutmeg.
Overall: Bold and immaculately balanced.
Being so versatile, Fords is ideal whatever your needs. Whether you’re looking to get creative or just want the perfect gin to mix your favourite cocktail with. With such a reasonable price point there is no reason to not have a bottle of Fords in your liquor collection.
If the person you’re buying for is a fan of the Fords Gin you could also try Martin Miller’s, Silent Pool or Beefeater 24.
This gin has been created specifically for the use of cocktails, a gin that can match to any recipe. In its creation Simon Ford created individual flavour maps of each ingredient, matching them to cocktails.
