A partnership between The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, and The London Distillery Company, creators of Dodd's Gin.
In 1759, a small botanic garden was founded by Princess Augusta on the banks of the river Thames. Today, the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew covers 320 acres and is home to the largest collection of useful, rare and treasured plants in the world.
The London Distillery Company is a distillery based in a former Victorian dairy cold room in Battersea. They distill their gin in Christina, a traditional 140-litre copper still. An unusual process, which then sees the three individual distillations married together and rested for up to four weeks to create Kew Organic Gin.
Kew Organic Gin is not just about the botanicals but the packaging too. Taking inspiration from the Kew archives they use traditional typesetting, letterpress printing, vegetable oil based inks (that avoid testing on animals) and incredible British made recycled paper, in an effort to be as ethical in their production as possible.
