Geranium Gin releases higher-ABV special edition

geranium 55 gin

A higher-strength version of Geranium Gin, made with the aromatic botanical of geraniums, is being released to mark the brand’s fifth anniversary.

Geranium Gin 55 has an ABV of 55%, which adds more weight and enhances the botanicals while retaining the smoothness and balance of the Geranium Gin.

Only 5,000 bottles have been produced of the limited-edition higher-strength gin which will be available alongside the core London dry gin which has an ABV of 44%.

Founder Henrik Hammer said: “Geranium Gin 55 is to be used for those times when more intensity of the cocktail is needed and will be the perfect choice for a Dry Martini, G&T or Negroni and any other drink where a more powerful gin has its place.”

Using pure grain spirit made from English wheat, it is based on the original recipe for Geranium Gin with botanicals of juniper, lemon, orange, coriander and cassia as well as geranium. It is made at Langley Distillery in the West Midlands.

Henrik, who is from Denmark, added: “The fact that 55° is the latitude of my home adds an extra dimension to the making of this special edition of one of the world’s finest gins.”
