Fords Gin is a collaboration between 8th generation Master Distiller Charles Maxwell of Thames Distillers and Simon Ford of The 86 Company, which is dedicated to creating spirits designed in unison with professional bartenders and celebrated distillers from around the world.

A thoughtful mix of nine botanicals, Fords Gin starts with a traditional base of juniper & coriander seed balanced by citrus, florals and spices. Steeped for 15 hours before distillation, the botanicals deliver an aromatic, fresh and floral spirit with elegant notes of jasmine and grapefruit that creates a versatile base for any gin-inspired cocktail.


Nose: Stewed plums, fig and rich dark raisin followed by dark cherry, juniper and hints of citrus fruit and even some dried apricot.

Palate: A mixture of tart dried fruits hit your palate immediately, then comes stewed prunes, golden raisins, dark raisins and dried fig. As the more volatile dried fruit flavors fade into the Juniper, dry grapefruit citrus and lemon burst onto the scene.

Finish: The finish is a combination of the citrus oils and the bitter fruit balanced with a honey-like sweetness before dryness sets back in and carries the flavors forward. The finish is long, rich and complex, jumping between bitterness and sweetness but ultimately harmonious before ending with a hint of spice, most notably clove.
