D1 London Gin encapsulates quintessential British flavours and aromas, with orange and fruit tea expressions around a confidently balanced juniper backbone.

The distillation in copper brings in fresh blackcurrant aromas that marry with the prominent nettle notes to deliver the smoothest and most versatile gin you will ever enjoy.

We use a very narrow cut of the purest triple-distilled grain spirit and introduce this to a copper pot still. We then conduct a batch distillation with juniper berries and bespoke botanicals including coriander, orange and lemon peel, angelica root, cassia bark, almond and liquorice.

Lastly, we add a daring kick of nettles selected especially for us by a master tea blender which is blended with our botanicals to create our unique 40% ABV gin of extraordinary British character.

D1 London Gin was awarded the highest, Masters, medals for the Super Premium and Contemporary categories of the global Gin Masters 2014 based on blind tastings by industry experts.

Serving Recommendation

For the perfect serve, pour 50ml of D1 London Gin over ice, add premium low sugar tonic and garnish with a sprig of fresh mint. Best served chilled.

We suggest a low sugar or skinny tonic so that you can taste more of the bitter gin botanicals that are otherwise suppressed by the high sugar levels of most standard tonics.  We don’t recommend using tonics with artificial sweeteners.
