Gin Lane 1751

Gin Lane 1751 is a celebration of the Victorian gin-making era, with a style of bold juniper & hints of liquorice. 

 

It has been created by Charles Maxwell of Thames Distillers, an 8th generation distiller, and The Bloomsbury Club – a group of gin lovers & drinks industry professionals. Gin Lane 1751 “Victoria” Pink is a small batch gin, and the only authentically-made pink gin on the market.  It is infused with naturally blended spiced bitters and can be served neat and well-chilled as the simplest of cocktails or as a chic alternative to a Gin & Tonic.
