Old English Gin is made from a 1783 recipe, distilling eleven botanicals in "Angela", the oldest pot still being used in England today (named after the grandmother of the distiller). By using recycled champagne bottles and wax sealing, all as they did back in 1783, Old English Gin reinvigorates the way English Gin was made and distributed back then. The recipe consist of juniper, coriander, lemon peel, orange peel, cinnamon, angelica, licorice, orris roots, cardamon and nutmeg. Old English Gin differs from London Dry in that it is slightly sweetened, a tradition that goes back to a time when poor quality spirits could have some of their impurities masked by the addition of sugar after distillation. Of course Old English Gin is a product of the highest quality, but to be historically authentic, Old English Gin is slightly sweetened as well. Therefore you can also drink it neat on ice.


The Gin Craze in England:

In 1690, English soldiers returning from the war against the Dutch in the Mediterranean, brought back a drink that become so popular, that within sixty years it was being blamed for the rapid degradation of society. This period is being remembered as the "Gin Craze". By 1751 the British government decided to act, regulating uncontrolled production, by imposing a law forcing distillers to become licensed. The production of Gin became organized, and branding and making quality products was now more important.
