It started with the Bloomsbury Club, a group of inquisitive drinks industry veterans with a passion to recreate a range of London Gins with historical accuracy and relevance to the Victorian era.
To accomplish this, a partnership was forged with 8th generation London distiller, Charles Maxwell of Thames Distillers, based in Clapham, London. Thames Distillers is considered to be the father of craft distilleries in the UK.
All four Gins are made using different proportions of the same 8 botanicals; juniper, star anise, Seville orange, orris root, cassia bark, angelica root, Sicilian lemons and coriander.
Gin Lane 1751 is the embodiment of a classic Victorian style gin in its taste profile, juxtaposed with accurate label recreation of the period to create a range of four crafted varietals. It is named after the 8th and last of the Gin acts.
