The Victorian version of Cream Gin was most likely a mixture of gin, cream, and sugar which was stored in a barrel, the cream and sugar likely intended to soften the harshness of the gin. Based on the original recipe, but updated via the application of modern science, a secret combination of ingredients—including fresh cream—is macerated with a citrus-forward gin, then cold distilled to produce a luscious spirit with a full mouthfeel and strong notes of dairy and vanilla. In this way, the cream mixture is used as a botanical—rather than being infused as in the Victorian method—and is included with the spirit pre-distillation. The resulting gin is significantly different in body, flavour, and balance to any other London Dry Gin, and it lends an entirely new dimension of texture to cocktails and a distinct interplay of botanicals to gin-based drinks. A must try new release for all gin fans.£7.07 per 100.00ml

The inspiration for the unique take comes from the Gin Palaces of the Victorian Age where cream gin was a staple ubiquity.
