In 1769, Alexander Gordon founded his world famous distillery in the Southwark area of London. He went on to lay the foundations for the creation of the style of gin for which the English became renowned. Gordon's London Dry gin is distilled three times for extra dryness and smoothness.
Happily, the exacting standards which Alexander Gordon set are maintained to this day. Gordon's® is triple distilled to guarantee the purity of the gin, and the exact blend of our botanicals has remained a closely guarded secret. The finest juniper, coriander and other botanicals give Gordon's gin its special taste and flavour.
Gordon's® contains juniper berries, carefully selected from the pick of each year's crop. These are gently shaken from the tree and then stored for two years to intensify the oils and mellow the flavours. The strength of the juniper gives Gordon's the classic gin taste.
By sourcing the finest possible ingredientsto produce an unsweetened, gloriously-flavoured gin worthy of the highest table and the finest occasion while remaining true to juniper, the keynote ingredient that gave gin its name, Gordon believed that success lay in the perfect combination of pure distilled grain spirit and rich botanicals.
In 1925 Gordon's Gin was awarded its first Royal Warrant by King George V. The years 1941 and 1952 saw Gordon's receive two more Royal Warrants from HM King George VI and HM Queen Elizabeth II respectively. Today Gordon's is the world's best selling premium gin.
For many years, Ugandans everywhere enjoyed drinking their local gin. This gin recipe was passed down from generation to generation, a treasured blend of the land.
