City of London Distillery has launched a ‘zesty’ new lemon gin celebrating its rich history in the Square Mile.
With an ABV of 41.3%, Six Bells Lemon Gin has notes of lemon sherbet together with the aromatic flavours reminiscent of a classic dry gin.
It is made with classic London dry botanicals with added dried lemon peel used both in the pot still and in the vapour chamber/carterhead still to capture more citrus flavour.
The new expression is named after the six bells surrounding the City of London in the classic rhyme ‘Oranges and Lemons’ – St Martin’s, Old Bailey, Shoreditch, St Clements’, Stepney and Bow.
Tradition has it that someone is a true Cockney if they are born within the sound of the Bow bells. Established less than a mile away, the City of London Bar and Distillery on Bride Lane is proud of its heritage.
Six Bells Lemon Gin comes in a yellow bottle, shaped like the iconic St Paul’s Cathedral.
The City of London Distillery Bar is showcasing the new expression, serving up ‘zesty’ Six Bells Lemon G&Ts and Martini cocktails at a reduced price in the run up until Christmas.
