A genuine English small batch distilled Gin where the careful selection and perfect combination of its natural ingredients give Fifty Pounds Gin an exceptional smoothness. This limited edition gift set comes with a special G&T Balloon Glass presented in an outer Fifty Pounds Gin branded gift box. Fifty Pounds Gin is produced in a small but legendary distillery located in the south-east of London, with a tradition that goes back more than two centuries. The distillation is carried out in a still manufactured by the legendary John Dore & Co Limited, into which a perfectly balanced and secret combination of herbs, spices, fruits and flowers, together with grain spirit (a neutral alcohol, that's previously distilled four times to achieve a greater purity) is distilled. Taking its name from the Gin Act of 1736, an annual levy of £50 was imposed on those wishing to produce and sell gin, during the reign of George II. After six years, just two distilleries had agreed to pay this tax. Hence it's name; Fifty Pounds Gin! Your gift message will be included on a gold gift tag.
