Fisher's London Dry Gin

Fishers Gin combines rare old English herbs and botanicals with distilled barley, sourced entirely from East Anglian farmers. Born from the union of master distiller John McCarthy and Oxford University botanist James Firth, Fishers Gin reflects a passion for nature and research, capturing the wild and forgotten flavours of the English coastline.
"James Firth, our head botanist, spent countless hours scouring historical manuscripts and looking at medieval herbalists to revive ingredients long thought extinct. Each one of our selected wild botanicals (Spignel, Rock Samphire, Wood Aven and Bog Myrtle) has been ethically sourced, many foraged daily by James, and are native to the Suffolk cost. At the Copper House distillery, the botanistís work is done and James hands over to John McCarthy, our award-winning Adnams distiller. The carefully prepared roots, leaves, seeds and berries are steeped in the barley spirit overnight and then receive a final shot-distillation in a copper gin still. "
Makes a great Martini, and also a lovely dry Gin & Tonic, grapefruit makes a good garnish, but also lemon and a sprig of rosemary helps to bring out the unique botanicals.
