Fords Gin is distilled in London at Thames Distillers, and is a collaboration between 8th generation Master Distiller Charles Maxwell and Simon Ford of The 86 Co. The mix of 9 botanicals starts with a traditional backbone base of juniper & coriander seed that's balanced with citrus (bitter orange, lemon & grapefruit peels), floral (jasmine flower & orris) and spice (angelica & cassia). The botanicals are steeped for 15 hours before distillation in 500 liter stills. The 86 Co. tested the recipe in classic gin drinks before finalizing their formula. Its style is aromatic, fresh and floral with elegant notes of orange blossom in a harmonious blend with citrus and juniper.
