Thomas Dakin Gin 750ML

Made with eleven botanicals including juniper, orange peel, English coriander, angelica, cubeb pepper and liquorice as well as "a hint of red cole" aka horseradish! It's named after Thomas Dakin, who began producing gin in Warrington in the second half of the 18th century, founding what would later become Greenall's. He was a pioneer who made gin of a surprising quality for the day, and who is rightly celebrated.

In 1761, at the outset of the industrial revolution, Thomas Dakin began distilling gin in Warrington in the north of England, at the age of 25. He pioneered the development and refinement of high quality English gin and his inventive and enlightened outlook created a superior quality, unrivalled gin distilling heritage and legacy. Given gin’s sordid reputation at the time, this was a highly ambitious move but Dakin had the courage of his convictions to succeed and transform the fortunes of gin from its dark past into a glorious future. Many gin makers followed Thomas Dakin but he was the man that started it all and is widely regarded as the forefather of quality English gin.
