London Dry Gin.

Alcohol By Volume (ABV)

37.5% (75 Proof).

Price Range





Named after the artist William Hogarth who created an engraving in 1751 called Gin Lane. This was during the height of the London “Gin Craze” and the engraving based around the St. Giles area of London shows a street scene depicting the horrors of the over consumption of Gin. This was used for an anti-Gin campaign and we are uncertain why Hogarth would have been chosen as a name for a Gin product!

Tasting Notes

On the nose is a strong aroma of alcohol. On the palate there are aspects of juniper and citrus, but is mostly overwhelmed by the alcohol.

This is certainly not a Gin for sipping and is harsh in most drinks. It is best used in long fruit based drinks and punches, and being inexpensive is very useful for people on a restricted budget.
