NoBody does London Dry Gin quite like NB
NB Gin was launched in 2013 in North Berwick, Scotland (Hence the 'NB') by husband and wife, Steve and Viv Muir. After, we assume, a good few test batches, the result is a 42% ABV London Dry gin made in-house using grain spirit and 8 traditional botanicals including lemon peel and grains of paradise (yes, that's a real thing!). NB Gin is a classic, traditional London Dry Gin which is juniper-led and smooth with a long finish, so good that it was voted the World's Best London Dry Gin in 2015.
What is London Dry Gin?
London dry gin doesn't have to come from London, it's a style of gin rather than a geographical speciality. The pre-requisites of a London Dry Gin are that it has to be distilled with botanicals to get the flavour, and you can’t add any artificial flavourings or additives after distillation.
What does NB Gin taste like?
NB Gin has a clear juniper nose and taste and is smooth with a peppery taste. It can be drunk on its own or used in cocktails.
