The idea of sticking gin in a barrel dates back to the 18th and early 19th centuries, when oak was used to ship and store the spirit rather than use breakable or expensive containers. As the gin sailed overseas, it picked up some of the oak’s sweet spiced qualities, as well as a little colour. Also known as ‘yellow gin’ the spirit was even sold in barrels prior to the Single Bottle Act 1861.

SIGNATURE SERVE

Serve on ice with premium ginger ale and garnish with dried ginger root and a grapefruit wedge.
