Style with Mobolaji Dawodu

Every batch of Boodles Gin is made with labour and patience. It begins as a clean spirit distilled from British wheat. The liquid is then redistilled in a Carter Head copper still, which allows the botanicals to gradually infuse into the spirit.
Our unique recipe contains botanicals sourced from the finest growers around the world. Interestingly, Boodles Gin contains no citrus - a practical decision made by original distillers who expected a proper drink to include a slice of lemon or lime.
The Boodles recipe also contains a number of traditional herbs and spices, including nutmeg, sage, and rosemary.
These ingredients add a mellow but herbal quality to Boodles, which balances out the essential piney notes from juniper.
A further five ingredients round out the recipe and achieve a forthright but subtle spirit, suitable for any proper drinks - martinis, Boodles & tonics, bucks, or further mixology, for those so inclined.
