In 1690, English soldiers returning from the war against the Dutch in the Mediterranean, brought back a drink that become so popular, that within sixty years it was being blamed for the rapid degradation of society. This period is being remembered as the "Gin Craze". By 1751 the British government decided to act, regulating uncontrolled production, by imposing a law forcing distillers to become licensed. The production of Gin became organized, and branding and making quality products was now more important.
Old English Gin is made from a 1783 recipe, distilling eleven botanicals in "Angela", the oldest pot still being used in England today (named after the grandmother of the distiller). By using recycled champagne bottles, organic sealing and silk printed labels, all as they did back in 1783, Old English Gin reinvigorates the way English Gin was made and distributed back then. Old English Gin is how it was: Truly original. Botanicals of the recipe: Juniper, coriander, lemonpeel, orangepeel, cinnamon, angelica, licorice, orris root, cardamon, nutmeg.
Note: The bottles are directly printed with organic paint. Due to the organic nature of the paint, it easily peels off. Don´t be dissapointed, it is not bad quality, it is organic!
