Fords Gin: A Deep Dive into a Versatile London Dry Gin

Fords Gin, meticulously crafted at London's Thames Distillery, has carved a niche for itself in the world of spirits. This award-winning gin, a collaboration between industry veterans, boasts a unique botanical blend that delivers a well-balanced and flavourful experience. Here at The General Wine, we're delving deep into Fords Gin, exploring its taste profile, ideal serves, and the perfect pairing options, to help you unlock its full potential.

Aromatic Journey: Unpacking the Botanical Symphony

Fords Gin is an intricate tapestry of nine botanicals, meticulously sourced from across the globe. Juniper, the quintessential gin ingredient, forms the base, but it's the interplay of other botanicals that elevates the experience. Citrus notes of grapefruit peel from Turkey and lemon peel from Spain dance on the nose, offering a refreshing zestiness. As you delve deeper, floral notes of jasmine from China emerge, adding a touch of elegance. Hints of earthy angelica root from Poland and coriander seeds from Morocco provide a subtle depth and warmth. The use of cassia bark adds a touch of gentle spice, while orris root from Morocco lends a touch of earthy sweetness. Finally, for a touch of citrusy brightness, grapefruit seeds round out the symphony of flavours.

The Tasting Experience: A Refreshing Exploration

Pour yourself a generous measure of Fords Gin and take a moment to appreciate its clarity. On the nose, the juniper presence is assertive but not overpowering. It's intertwined with vibrant citrus notes of grapefruit and lemon, which mingle beautifully with the delicate floral character of jasmine. As you take a sip, the juniper takes centre stage, delivering a smooth warmth on the tongue. The citrus notes burst forth, leaving a refreshingly tart impression. The floral character of jasmine complements the citrus, adding a touch of elegance. As the flavours develop, subtle hints of spice and earthiness from the angelica root, coriander seeds, and cassia bark emerge, adding complexity to the profile. The orris root provides a touch of sweetness that lingers on the finish, perfectly balanced by the lingering citrus zest from the grapefruit seeds.

The Perfect Serve: Unlocking Fords Gin's Versatility

Fords Gin's well-balanced flavour profile makes it a versatile spirit, perfect for crafting a wide range of cocktails. Here are some of our favourites:

  • The Classic Gin & Tonic: A timeless pairing, the gin and tonic allows Fords Gin's flavours to shine. Fill a highball glass with ice, add 50ml of Fords Gin, top with a premium tonic water, and garnish with a wedge of grapefruit or a sprig of rosemary.
  • The Refreshing Ford's Collins: A twist on the classic Tom Collins, this vibrant cocktail is perfect for warm weather. In a shaker filled with ice, combine 50ml of Fords Gin, 25ml freshly squeezed lemon juice, 25ml simple syrup, and a dash of soda water. Shake well and strain into a chilled coupe glass. Garnish with a maraschino cherry and a lemon twist.
  • The French 75 with a Twist: For a touch of sophistication, try this take on the French 75. In a shaker filled with ice, combine 50ml of Fords Gin, 25ml lemon juice, 12.5ml champagne syrup, and a few dashes of Champagne vinegar. Shake well and strain into a chilled champagne flute. Top with chilled Champagne and garnish with a lemon twist.
