This London Dry is made by Greensand Ridge - a carbon-neutral micro-distillery who are honest about what they do and how they do it. They use 100% renewable power to run their stills and utilise surplus produce from local farmers and the food industry. Quite unbelievably they manage to limit their non-recyclable waste output to one bag every 6-8 weeks!
They distill in small batches and the end result is a well rounded gin with no overly dominant flavours.
Among the 15 botanicals are 8 that are locally sourced - cobnuts, gorse flowers, oak moss, honey, rosehips, hawthorn berries, bay laurel and poppy seeds.
