Review: The London No. 1 Original Blue Gin

Posted by Arctic Wolf on June 23, 2020

London No. 1 Original Blue Gin is a product of Gonzalas Byass who are a Spanish wine/cellars company which also produces a variety of distilled spirits including brandy, anisette, botanical vodka and of course gin. Their gin is triple distilled (from English grain in London, England) on a traditional pot still in small batches.

According to the London No. 1 website the gin is distilled with 12 key botanicals which include: Juniper, Angelica root , Savory, Coriander, Cassia bark, Licorice, Cinnamon, Almond, Lemon peel, Orange peel, Lily root and Bergamot.

The product was first test marketed in Spain, and was then launched in limited quantities internationally in 2012. It is bottled at 47 % alcohol by volume ensuring a more concentrated flavour than more traditional spirits which are bottled at 40 % alcohol by volume.

Here is a link to my fresh new look at London No. 1 Original Blue Gin:

Review: The London No. 1 Original Blue Gin

“… This is perplexing. I sampled London No. 1 Blue Gin about eight years ago, and according to my review I quite liked it. This time around, the only portion of the review which scores as well (actually a little better) is the bottle. It is the perfume-like quality of the gin which I do not find nearly so attractive this time around …”

Please enjoy my review which concludes with my serving suggestion, the Blue Pegu.

Chimo!
