Thomas Dakin London Dry Gin arrives on SA shores

Thomas Dakin Small-Batch Gin, a classic style juniper-focused gin, known for its proud heritage and impressive craftmanship, is finally available in South Africa.

A sip of history

Thomas Dakin Small-Batch Gin is not a replicate of the original recipe but rather a tribute to the forefather of modern gin. It is a combination of the exotic spices exchanged along the Manchester-Warrington-Liverpool trade route in the 18th-century and an assortment of contemporary homegrown British ingredients. It is Master Distiller Joanne Moore’s homage to the past while remaining true to Dakin’s spirit of innovation.

It took Moore 12 months to develop the Thomas Dakin Small-Batch Gin recipe and it has already received multiple awards such as; Best Gin by The Grocer Magazine, gold medals at the IWSC, 94/100 at the Ultimate Spirits Challenge in the U.S, and title of World’s Best British Dry Gin at the 2018 Gin Masters since launching.

Thomas Dakin London Dry Gin
Thomas Dakin Small-Batch Gin contains 11 botanicals including juniper, coriander seed, cubebs, Angelica root, liquorice, sweet orange peel, grapefruit peel, and Red Cole (the 18th-century word for horseradish)

11 botanicals including horseradish

Thomas Dakin Small-Batch Gin is still, as done in Dakin’s day, made in a small-scale copper pot. It contains 11 botanicals including juniper, coriander (sourced from a local farmer in southern England) seed, cubebs, Angelica root, liquorice, sweet orange peel, grapefruit peel, and Red Cole (the 18th-century word for horseradish). It is the unusual addition of Red Cole that gives Thomas Dakin Small-Batch Gin its distinctive, award-winning, savoury character.

The gin is bottled in bespoke square-shaped bottles to represent the masculine, straight-talking nature of Thomas Dakin and to elevate the botanicals used in this top-quality recipe.

Thomas Dakin Small-Batch Gin boasts a distinct flavour profile as individual personalities emerge at different stages of the sipping journey. It tastes unique but also remains respectful to the fact that it is first and foremost juniper-focused gin.

Thomas Dakin Small-Batch Gin will be available at a range of premium locations in South Africa as well as major liquor stores post lockdown at RRSP for R 599-00.
