London Dry Ginuary Week 1: Nelson's London Dry No.7

Nelson's London Dry No.7, crafted by founder and chef Neil Harrison, is a masterpiece of 27 flavours. Centred around juniper, it offers a unique blend of woody spice and citrus, with a creamy palate and unique aromatic spices. Neil perfected this recipe at a Gin School not dissimilar to our own, distilling seven gins in seven sessions over three years. The name 'No.7' reflects this process. The same 27-botanical recipe forms the foundation for our award-winning Timur Gin and Rhubarb & Custard Gin.

Nose:
Soft and fragrant with a clear presence of juniper, accompanied by notes of woody spice and a hint of citrus. The aroma is bright and inviting.

Palate:
Offers a complex and slightly creamy texture, balancing spices with subtle herbaceous tones. The palate is well-rounded, with understated citrus notes from kaffir lime and lemongrass. A hint of soft sweetness from rose petals adds to the nuance.

Finish:
The finish is smooth and lasting, with the spiciness of cinnamon and pink peppercorns lingering, beautifully balanced by the sweet, creamy notes of vanilla.
