Gin Lane 1751 Small Batch Victoria Pink Gin - Spirits Worth Raising

Gin Lane 1751 Small Batch Victoria Pink Gin

Gin Lane is named after The Gin Act of 1751, one of the most crucial moments in the history of gin. The idea is the brainchild of a group of gin connoisseurs called the Bloomsbury Club, and Charles Maxwell of Thames Distillers, an eighth generation distiller.The catalyst for the Gin Act of 1751, was artist William Hogarths legendary depiction of Gin Lane. His work essentially banned the sale of gin in prisons, workhouses, and stores. Consequently, gin became scarce and expensive, but subsequently its rarity improved its quality remarkably. By the Victorian era, gin had become a respectable spirit.Each bottle of Gin Lane 1751 gin has been individually numbered and handcrafted in small traditional pot stills. There are eight natural botanicals: juniper, orris root, Seville oranges, angelica, Sicilian lemon, star anise, cassia bark, and coriander. These simple ingredients coalesce to yield a well-balanced, deeply complex gin.This Victoria Pink gin is blended with bitters, a tradition that was initially created by the British Royal Navy in an attempt to cure sea sickness but also to harmonize sweet dry gins with a contrasting flavor profile. The result is a well-balanced gin with juniper still at the forefront but with a harmonious balance of herbal and spiced bitters. Pick up your bottle today!
