In accordance with the London Dry Gin tradition, Six Ravens Gin is exclusively obtained from distilling selected botanicals, such as juniper berries, coriander, lemon peel and fresh ginger. For the final product no added sweetening, nor colorants, nor any other ingredients (other than water) are added to the distillate. Especially the magic ingredient of fresh ginger gives Six Ravens Gin its unique fruity, though spicy taste. Six Ravens London Dry Gin has an increased alcohol percentage of 46% to preserve its full bodied flavor profile, even when mixed with your favorite tonic water. It is the perfect Gin for a premium Gin Tonic: We recommend to add a lemon zest to every drink. This enhances the fruity though spicy note of this very fine Gin.
