Kew Organic Gin

Kew Gin

Today we'd like to tell you about a new and extremely exciting gin! There are always new gins coming out, of course, but how many of them are made with hand picked botanicals from Kew Gardens?! Kew Organic Gin is certainly something quite special.

Dodd's Gin (the chaps from The London Distillery Company in Battersea) has partnered with the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew to create a brand new organic gin from the aforementioned foraged seasonal Kew flora and other organic botanicals from around the world. The famous gardens span 320 acres, employing 750 staff (250 of which are scientists with many more involved in the internationally important research carried out there) and house a truly extraordinary collection of useful plants and fungi. Understandably, it's been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2003. Can you dream of a better place to source botanicals?

Other cities, such as Liverpool, can make similar claims, and whilst English whisky may still be an unusual concept for some, the revival is already well underway. Indeed, we could soon have 5 English whisky distilleries. London’s gin heritage meanwhile, is “too well known to require a dissertation”, to steal a Ralph Dodd (the chap this gin's named after) phrase.
