Palmers London Dry Gin

To celebrate its 200th year of distilling, WH Palmer has launched Palmers London Dry Gin – its first eponymous gin brand, produced at its Langley Distillery in the Midlands.

The Palmer family has been distilling spirits for six generations, and gin since 1920, and is responsible for distilling more than 300 stock gin recipes, as well as creating bespoke ones for more than 80% of the UK’s artisanal brands of gins.

Palmers London Dry Gin is produced in the family’s copper pot still, named Angela, which was built in 1903, and is distilled with botanicals of juniper, coriander, angelica, cassia, liquorice, orris and grapefruit.

Master distiller Rob Dorsett said: “The resulting gin has juniper in abundance on the nose, blended with hints of coriander seed and a subtle dryness complemented by an edge of sweetness from orris. On the palate there are spice and citrus notes from the cassia bark and grapefruit, while the juniper lingers into the dryness of angelica finishing with further citrus notes.”

Langley Distillery is home to what the family believes is the UK’s oldest working copper-pot gin still. The Still Room houses seven copper gin stills, which are all named after family members and significant people who have worked at the distillery. Five of these are production and, the oldest, the McKay, dates back to the mid-1800s.


RRP £28.
