New Sparrow gin swoops in

A new London Dry Gin, Sparrow, is to be introduced in the UK after successful trials at Drake & Morgan bars in London.

The small-batch gin has been developed by Tim Moore of Analogue Spirits, based in Peckham Rye, south- east London.With an ABV of 41.6 per cent, its key botanicals include grapefruit peel, sweet orange peel and ginger.“We wanted to create an up-to-date, fresh citrus taste that was smoother and at a good strength,” Tim explained.

With notes of juniper and citrus peel on the nose, the flavour leads with the grapefruit peel, sweet orange peel, Ivory Coast ginger and juniper, with rounded tones of spice and lingering floral notes. It has been well received at Drake & Morgan’s five bars since being trialled first at The Refinery in Southwark in January.
