“Super-fresh, floral-accented gin with a tang of citrus and sweet mulberry

Pothecary Gin Origins
Pothecary gin – the perfect tonic
Pothecary Gin was created with a passion for organic, handcrafted, artisan produce. After many months of research, and tasting, Martin Jennings elected to use the less common process of distilling each botanical separately, and then blending them together before dilution, which yields incomparable, high quality aromas and flavours, creating an exciting gin that’s both well- balanced and refreshingly individual.
