Notes of Scent & Flavor

  • Nose

    Juniper, coriander and angelica root up front with developing layers of citrus, jasmine, and hints of vanilla in the back. Very pleasant on the nose, bright, and aromatic.
  • Front of Palate

    Light sweetness on tip of the tongue. Gentle introduction of the botanicals to follow. Notes of orris and angelica roots.
  • Mid-palate

    Prominent mid-palate presence, with juniper oils on the center tongue and full aroma on top palate. Citrus oils excite the side palate beautifully. Under tongue stays dry yet animated. Excellent mid-palate structure to serve as base for mixing.
  • Body or Mouth Feel

    Medium body with rather fresh mouth feel and high dryness.
  • Finish

    Long, lingering finish of grapefruit rind and juniper with a balance of the floral notes.

“ The Cocktail Gin”


Origins

The journey to create Fords Gin began on cocktail napkins in the world’s greatest bars. As the resident “gin guru” of The 86 Company with over 20 years of experience in the drinks business, Simon Ford found himself having countless conversations with fellow bartenders about the need for a go-to cocktail gin — a “Jack of All Trades”. Bartenders wanted a versatile spirit that could be used in any gin-based cocktail, no matter what ingredients the recipe called for.
