Dodd’s Gin

Dodds Gin 97x300 Dodds GinDeveloped at a new distillery in Battersea, the latest small batch gin to join London’s burgeoning gin industry is made using organic botanicals including juniper, angelica, fresh lime peel, bay laurel, cardamom, red raspberry leaf and London honey.   Unlike London Dry Gin – which requires all ingredients to be distilled in one go – Dodd’s distils the heartier botanicals in a copper still and the more delicate botanicals in a cold vacuum still.  The two spirits are then married for several weeks before being hand-bottled and labelled.  The result is a definitely worth checking out; expect a sharp lime kick, followed by a touch of spiciness and juniper and a mellow sweet finish.  At 49.9% Abv, there’s great fun to be had in cocktails too.  £36 from spirits specialists and www.londondistillery.com
