Dodd's GinPlease wait Please wait
The first product from The London Distillery Company, this punchy gin is named after Ralph Dodd, an entrepreneur in the early 19th century who founded his own gin distillery. Dodd's Gin uses fresh lime peel, cardamom and London honey, as well as more traditional gin botanicals such as juniper and angelica.
From The Whisky Exchange
- Nose: Big, welcoming and powerful, with a good whack of juniper and refreshing citrus along with spicy, fragrant cardamom.
- Palate: The higher ABV creates a more satisfying texture and mouthfeel and delivers plenty of punchy flavour, with juniper, red fruits and more cardamom and zingy citrus.
- Finish: Clean, with juniper, black pepper and spice lingering.
Dodd's Gin is made by The London Distillery Company (TLDC), which was founded in 2011 by Darren Rook. The company is based in Bermondsey, south London, and has plans to open a second distillery at the site of the iconic Battersea Power Station. The ambition doesn't stop there – TLDC plans to open a microbrewery and its own whisky distillery, too.

I shared this as a gift with a long time member of the Craft Gin Club who said it was outstanding - I'm not one to argue!
Best gin I''ve ever had.
