The Tottering Sharpener Gin
London Dry Gin
Foxdenton // London, England
Tottering-by-Gently is a beloved comic strip drawn by Annie Tempest. Created in 1993, the strip has been featured in Country Life magazine and features Lord (Dicky) and Lady (Daffy) Tottering, who along with their grandchildren live in Tottering Hall. Lady Tottering has a fondness for gin, hence the label. The gin itself is made in a concentrate, or multi-shot, which is to say that neutral grain spirit and water are added post-distillation. This London Dry Gin recipe was created by Foxdenton and is distilled in London at the Thames Distillery.
London Dry GinNeutral spirit flavored with juniper and other botanicals. In the US, the minimum ABV is 40%; In the EU, it is 37.5%. Originally, only made in London, this can be made anywhere. No artificial flavors or colors can be added. Only water, neutral grain spirit, and sugar (no more than 0.1g/l) can be added.
"The gin is a little prickly at first with juniper and lemon standing out. A little lean on the mid-palate and not very bitter. It isn't terribly complex, but it gets the job done. It makes a fine companion to some ice and tonic."
