“I really love the extra zip of Fords London Dry Gin,” says Greg Benson. “The initial lemon peel and coriander aroma segues nicely into the full body and lingering pop of the gin’s slightly stronger ABV. Perfectly suited for a wide range of flavors, Fords was a natural choice for a cocktail that has, well, quite the wide range of flavors. Fords calls it their ‘cocktail gin’ for a good reason!”
“Simon Ford is a bartender’s bartender, and I talked extensively with him in the lead up to the brand launch, because he was seeking input and advice from bartenders on how to shape his Fords London Dry Gin,” says Damon Boelte. “In 2019, he was a guest on The Speakeasy and gave us even more insight into the very thoughtful way he crafted his product by truly understanding how to best use gin in cocktail making. Coriander, angelica, and tons of citrus notes are a perfect foundation for a refreshing gin cocktail, and I encourage you all to get a bottle of Fords into your rotation.”
For Sother Teague, Fords London Dry Gin is the obvious choice for building a cocktail, due to its complex yet approachable botanical lineup. “It has everything from the presence of bitter orange and lemon peels plus hints of jasmine to big notes of juniper, all of which will make your gin drinks pop! Simon Ford, the creator, had a long history of working with gin before launching his own brand, so he pulled from his experience and didn’t leave the input of the industry out of the equation. Don’t sleep on Fords Gin—it’ll be a welcome and versatile addition to your back bar. Cheers!”
Fords Gin captivates the senses with its balanced and refreshing profile. The nose is greeted by a bouquet of juniper, citrus, and floral notes. On the palate, you'll discover a harmonious blend of traditional gin botanicals, complemented by a touch of spice and a hint of creaminess, culminating in a crisp, lingering finish.
The allure of Fords Gin lies in its refined production process. Crafted using nine carefully selected botanicals, this distinguished spirit is distilled in traditional copper pot stills and rested for three days, allowing the flavors to meld seamlessly. The result is a captivating gin that reflects the rich history and expertise of Charles Maxwell.
Indulge in the classic elegance of Fords Gin, the bartender's essential that delights with every sip.
