Where Men Can Become Better Gentlemen


Steed Gin


Fuente Anguila Ltd., Spain but made at an undisclosed distillery in England, UK.






The base spirit is made from 100% grain alcohol and is distilled twice. The botanicals are then hot macerated prior to the third and final distillation.

Production levels are limited making availability scarce, even within Spain. The Gin is presented in a squat, cylindrical and black colored bottle with straight shoulders and white screen printed lettering, a red horse shoe is interlaced with the letter "D" from Steed.


London Dry Gin.

Alcohol By Volume (ABV)

44% (88 Proof).

Price Range

$$$ - $$$$. Not available in the USA but try online at Smart Bites, based in Spain, who deliver worldwide - although delivery charges are not clearly stated. 


Uses 8 botanicals including: angelica root, cardamom, cinnamon, coriander, juniper berries, lemon peel, orange peel and orris root.


In English, steed is another name for a non-castrated stallion, and horse references are commonly used in many Spanish-speaking countries (especially in conjunction with liquor) e.g. Cabalitto Gin.

Tasting Notes

On the nose is juniper, citrus and spice. On the palate this aromatic and very dry Gin has juniper and citrus (lemon & orange) with spice notes. On the close these flavors continue with a dry warming peppery spice and somewhat bitter finish.

This has all the hallmarks of a traditional London Dry Gin but with a greater degree of dry bitterness than many others. Although for some this may not be for them, it does provide a noticeable difference that should suit Gin drinkers who like this bitter dry flavor profile. Not necessarily one to be drunk neat we have only had limited tasting experience with this Gin and found we enjoyed this most in a Gin and Tonic – particularly Fentimans tonic with a lime garnish.
