Luke Tegner, Brands’ Director of Berry Bros. & Rudd Spirits, states; “This latest award completes a remarkable couple of years for No. 3 London Dry Gin in terms of accolades. It illustrates the judges of the ISC recognise excellent, traditional gin with juniper at its heart. I’m very pleased that a new brand, albeit one with 300 years of heritage, can gain recognition in such a dynamic category – long may it continue.”
With juniper at its heart, No. 3 unashamedly celebrates the integrity and character of traditional London Dry Gin, featuring just three fruits and three spices distilled in traditional copper pot stills.• Juniper, from Italy, gives the unmistakable gin taste of pine and lavender.• Sweet Spanish Orange peel provides freshness in the form of clean, crisp citrus.• Angelica root adds an earthy quality and helps to make the gin dry.
• Moroccan Coriander seed releases a lemon flavour during distilling as well as adding a spicy, slightly peppery finish.
• Grapefruit peel gives an extra lift of citrus.
• Cardamom pods add a spicy, aromatic, yet warm bite.
Great care has been taken to determine the right recipe, source the finest ingredients and work with highly experienced distillers and experts to produce an impeccable gin at 46% ABV.
Now in its 17th year, the International Spirits Challenge is the most authoritative, respected and influential spirits competition in the world. Winning an ISC award is an impressive achievement for any spirit that passes the blind assessment of the experienced panel of specialist judges.
