Jarrold's award winning London dry gin is a wonderful fusion of two gin defining traditions. Quality synonymous with London dry gins mixed up with a heavier note of juniper from traditional Dutch genevers. The result is a refreshingly simple and beautifully balanced spirit.
Travelling the world in the oil industry (hence The Nodding Donkey Distillery Company) exposed us to a rich selection of ingredients used in food and drink from a wide range of different cultures.
None more so than in Iraq where the local people use Persian Limes in a vast range of cuisine. From cold sweetened drinks in the heat of summer, to warm teas and coffee laced with Cardamom in the winter. It's instantly recognisable with citrus notes and sensational flavour.
Inspired by the revival in what we've always thought of as a stunning and versatile spirit, we wanted to make a robust gin with heavy notes of juniper but one which was perfectly balanced by the other botanicals. It's taken us two years to get this far. We've had a lot of fun on the way and we hope you agree that it's well worth the wait.
