Made in Battersea in a former Victorian Dairy in London’s first whisky distillery in the capital for over a hundred years. The gin is named after a maverick inventor Ralph Dodd who unsuccessfully tried to open a London Distillery Company in the 1800s. The distillery is ecologically minded: the base spirit is 100% organic and approved by the soil association, the heat energy created by the stills is recovered and reused, the labels for the gin are carbon neutral and are produced from a company that uses solely wind energy. There are 8 botanicals in the gin including juniper, fresh lime peel, bay laurel, black and green cardamom, angelica root, red raspberry leaf and urban sourced honey collected by the London Honey Company, to create a very distinctive, aromatic and highly complex gin. Some of the botanicals are steeped and then distilled in the 140 litre pot still named “Christina” with the more delicate and fragile botanicals distilled in the tiny Roto-Vap named “Little Albion”. Both distillates are then blended for several weeks before being bottled at 49.9% creating only 180 bottles a time per batch. A unique, individual gin, beautifully presented.
