James Martin's own gin

James' gin website reveals: "It was a long-cherished dream to develop a tasteful Gin. Rich in flavour and a combination of traditional and bold organic botanicals. A real taste experience that every Gin lover would appreciate.

"After a year of development, testing, tasting and starting over, we have finally succeeded in putting together a unique product. We are therefore proud to present the first Signature James Martin's Gin.

"This handmade and slow distilled Gin is made in small batches and was honoured with a Gold Medal at the 2021 Las Vegas World Spirits Awards."

The gin contains Juniper, coriander, Angelica, Orris, as well as Valencia orange and Amalfi lemon zest. Ginger, pine, lemongrass and a few secret ingredients are also included. Sounds delicious!
