58 Gin - 50cl - 43% ABV
58 Gin is a one man band operation, the gin distilled under a railway arch in Hackney Downs by Australian founder Mark Marmont, a former dive instructor and boat skipper, who fell in love with the cocktail industry and gin, particularly, when he moved to London in early 2007.
58 Gin uses a total of nine botanicals: juniper, coriander, angelica, bergamot, lemon, pink grapefruit, cubeb berries, orris root and vanilla. 58 Gin has a citrus lift on the nose, leading to a classic flavour prolife of juniper and coriander to taste. The Angelica and vanilla help anchor the gin while the trio of citrus emerge once more. Even though it is by no means a citrusy gin, the pink grapefruit and bergamot peel stand out throughout and make it an ideal choice for a G&T.
