Launched in September 2019, Savile Row Gin promises to deliver a gin that The Row would be proud to serve. The Gin is backed by British style icon and entrepreneur, David Gandy who is brand ambassador and also an investor in the brand. Savile Row have a reputation for producing suits of the highest calibre, and wanted a drink to reflect this – and so Savile Row Gin was created.
Distilled in England in vintage copper stills, the production process is overseen by award winning Master Distiller Rob Dorsett. Savile Row Gin is a unique blend of 12 botanicals, expertly balanced to create a smooth, refined taste with a distinctive finish. The signature botanical at the heart of Savile Row Gin is the unique addition of kumquat. The result is a classic London dry gin with a contemporary twist. Garnish with some pink grapefruit to really bring out the flavours. Find more cocktail ideas here. RRP £39.95. Available from the Savile Row Gin website, Fortnum & Mason and Master of Malt.
