A discreet yet beautiful eye-catching design of bottle that harks back to its London Dry Gin roots. The pink hue elevates it’s bar shelf status.
Greenall’s Wild Berry Gin is created by infusing blackberries and raspberries together with Greenall’s historic Original London Dry Gin.
Greenall’s Gin has been continuously produced by G&J Distillers to the same secret recipe for over 250 years! The thing about secret recipes are it’s a secret, a bit like that Colonel Sanders guy who serves a great chicken coating recipe.
Joking aside, this Gin is steeped in history so read on to find out more.
A clean, crisp and slightly sweet Gin with an initial taste of juniper, wild berries, and a mild peppery finish. A pleasantly fruity Gin, although I found it a tad understated so add some additional wild berry garnish when serving is my recommendation.
A Bit of History
Now this is very interesting!
Greenall’s is steeped in history, and they are responsible for the original London Dry Gin which was Established in 1761. Their Gin is handcrafted by England’s oldest gin distillery, G&J Distillers in Warrington, and have been producing their excellent Gin for over 250 years.
Their original recipe was created by Thomas Dakin over 250 years ago and this remains unchanged, only ever known by seven Master Distillers over 250 years. The baton has been passed to Joanne Moore, who is Greenall’s 7th Master Distiller and the current recipe’s custodian.
The eight botanicals that make up Greenall’s Gin are lovingly handpicked and sourced from across the world and include such delights as Tuscan juniper berries, Moroccan coriander and Spanish lemon peel.
Greenall’s Wild Berry Gin is best served with ice, premium tonic water, then garnish with a generous handful of fresh raspberries & blackberries.
This is the perfect ‘English Garden’ Gin for the summertime and autumn too. I also recommend you check out my full Hendricks review if summertime Gin’s are what you fancy.
