THL: What is it?
Plymouth English Gin bridges the gap between Old World and New World style gins with their own style that’s stood the test of time for over 200 years.Plymouth Gin balances the juniper with their specialty blend of botanicals. The addition of orange peel and coriander make it one of the earlier popular gins to deviate from the classic London dry style. Plymouth Gin is named in over 30 classic cocktails in the Savoy Cocktail book and is a gin that should be tried by anyone looking to experience the full gin flavor spectrum.
THL: Why should you try it?
Plymouth has a rich history in the UK and United States. The pilgrims headed for the New World on the Mayflower spent their final night in England in Plymouth's Black Friars Distillery before boarding their ship in the morning. Plymouth gins have been favored by the British Royal Navy since the late 1700s. The Royal Navy took the gin wherever they sailed and created a growing global demand for Plymouth. The first recipe for a Dry Martini, written in 1896, called for Plymouth. Today, Plymouth is a style of gin as well as a benchmark in the spirits world.
THL: Who makes it?
Plymouth Gin was originally distilled at the Black Friars Distillery in Plymouth, London. The distillery has since been acquired by Pernod Ricard.
