Berry Bros. & Rudd are known for being one of the finest wine and spirits shops in London, if not the world. They also bottle their own spirits, with great success.
Having already produced the high quality No. 3 gin, Berry Bros. decided to revive an older product, that was popular earlier in the 20th century.
Berry’s Best Gin, as it was known, was almost lost to the sands of time, but Berry Bros. managed to track down a bottle from the 1950’s thought to be the last in existence. From this final bottle, they were able to recreate the gin using modern ingredients and methods.
The result is an attractively floral and creamy gin, with powerful juniper, violet, chopped herb and slight spice notes.
A proper old fashioned London Dry, this makes a mean G&T.
