London Dry Gin
Maidstone // England
Maiden Distillery is based in the 200 year old buildings of the old Medway Distillery above the town of Maidstone, Kent. Their Maidstone gin is made with ten botanicals: juniper, coriander seed, angelica, cardamom, meadowsweet, marshmallow root, orris root, cassia bark, licorice root, and orange peel. Using a "one shot" method, the botanicals are added to the base spirit and immediately distilled in small copper pot still. The gin is then bottled at 42% ABV.
