Fords London Dry Gin - 70cl - 45% ABV
Fords Gin is the ultimate barkeeps multitool and as such is a gin that would stand proud in any collection. The bottle itself is designed with ergonomics in mind and even has a handy measuring tool on the side so that it can be reused for syrups. Though clearly made for industry use, Fords Gin is one that gin drinkers and cocktail connoisseurs alike would do well to have in their cupboards.
The liquid inside is a sturdy gin - made as part of a collaboration between Simon Ford of The 86 Co. and Charles Maxwell of Thames Distillers. It's safe to say that Ford, with a long, long history of bartending and Maxwell, a Master Distiller who has been in the industry for 40 years, know what a gin should taste like and with a bright cassia and green juniper coming through right off the bat followed by an earthy angelica and a triple whammy citrus hit (orange, lemon and grapefruit) this is what a gin should taste like.
