    British Library Gin

    Made in the UK logo  Small Business logo  

    A beautiful juniper heavy gin infused with an unusual mix of galangal, grains of paradise, and cardamom. Inspired by what’s believed to be the earliest known recipe for gin, found in the British Library collection.

    To serve: Enjoy with tonic and a slice of lemon. Or for a wintry twist, why not try with ginger ale and a dusting of cinnamon?

    The print used on this bottle is taken from the Olga Hirsch collection of decorated papers. Hirsch (1889-1968) was a world-renowned researcher, collector, and trained bookbinder, and left her collection of some 3,500 papers, dating from the 16th to the 20th century, to the British Library. It remains one of the largest and most diverse collections of decorated papers in existence.

    Produced for the British Library by Wessex Spirits, who handcraft small batch gins with fresh and natural ingredients.

    ABV 37.5%
