June - Spirit of the Month

Fords Gin

London, England

The weather is warming up and when we think of summer cocktails, the most iconic, and arguably easiest to make, is the Gin & Tonic! Which is why we chose Ford’s Gin as our “Spirit of the Month” for June.

Simon Ford has worked in the Gin industry for over 10 years, training and educating people worldwide. Some of the gins he’s worked on include Plymouth, Dorothy Parker and Perry’s Tot. The 86 Company is his new venture that is centered around the input of bartenders. Everything from recipe development to the ergonomics of the bottle, was created for the specific needs of bartenders. This is a fantastic gin for mixing in a Martini, Tom Collins, or a white Negroni.

Tasting Notes:

This is very much NOT your typical London Dry Gin. While it does have juniper and coriander that are the hallmarks of any London Dry type of gin it is a bit more balanced than most with a nice subtlety to the blending giving you a very harmonious gin. The mix of 9 botanicals starts with a traditional backbone base of juniper & coriander seed that's balanced with citrus (bitter orange, lemon & grapefruit peels), floral (jasmine flower & orris) and spice (angelica & cassia). A good solid gin profile with a lightness imparted by scents of jasmine.
