BLOODY BENS SIGNATURE GIN

Our first Gin, inspired by Mallorcan dreaming and London living.
It's a traditional juniper forward London Dry Gin with Honey & Orange notes, giving it a delicious and distinctive taste.
43% ABV. Equally great straight up, as a G&T or in a cocktail (it's an absolute must in Negronis).
Hand crafted in Small Batches in our Micro Distillery, a small Copper Still, in Earlsfield, South West London. It's the area's first ever Gin. 

In 2019, the Gin won Two Gold Stars in the Great Taste Awards.

Bloody Bens Award Winning Gin from Earlsfield, Wandsworth, South West London

  • 50ml Bloody Bens Signature Gin
  • 100ml Fever Tree Mediterranean Tonic
  • Garnish with an Orange Slice, and if you have it, a sprig of Lavender
  • Serve with Serious Pig Cheese, Pickles and Salted Almonds

Serious Pig's Crunchy Snacking Cheese with Truffle: Get ready for a huge truffle bop on the nose when you open the packet, followed by a crunchy, full bodied moreish cheesy tang and finally a rich, earthy, silky truffle finish. It's a next level cheese snack! Suitable for vegetarians, it's also gluten and lactose free too.

Serious Pig's Almonds 'Cornish Sea Salted': How to make the humble nut even better? Add the best salt from Cornish Sea Salt Co. Also, Almonds are all over Mallorca which inspired Bloody Bens Signature Gin, so this is literally the snack that helped inspire a business and a Gin.

Serious Pig's Snacking Pickles: the finest, tastiest baby gherkins, gently pickled. Crunchy and tangy, perfect with a refreshing Gin and Tonic.

BACKGROUND STORY

Bloody Bens Signature Gin is our first ever Gin, inspired by living in London and dreaming in Mallorca.

Ben has been visiting Mallorca for 20 years and on those trips, typically strolling around Palma Old Town and stopping for a Cana or a (very) large Gin and Tonic, he used to dream of starting his own businesses. These ambitions were fuelled by living in London, frequently inspired by the amazing entrepreneurial spirit of the City. 

The Honey represents living and working in Wandsworth, South West London, it's pretty much the only thing we found that was made in Wandsworth. The Oranges represent holidaying and dreaming in Mallorca. 
 

The Gin has been made with escapism in mind. Escapism, of course, is different to everyone, For some, it’s saying screw it, I’m going to do it and start their own business. For others, it’s going on a lovely holiday. And for some, it’s taking a moment after a long day at work, or putting the kids to bed, to pour yourself a delicious drink and to savour the day.

Whatever your definition of escapism, every sip of Bloody Bens Signature Gin delivers a taste of what memories are made of.

MORE INFO

As well as the Honey and Orange, the Gin features 10 Botanicals. No artificial flavourings or colourings are used in the production. 

COCKTAIL IDEAS

It also makes a lovely Bees Knees and there are lots more possibilities, such as a warm Gin Toddy for the Winter. Get more ideas on our website here by clicking here.

WHAT'S WITH THE NAME?

Bloody Bens started with our Bloody Mary Mix which was created in Ben's Canteen which was famous for Brunch. So, Brunch, Bloody Marys, Ben's Canteen... obviously leads to Bloody Bens, right. 

And when we started the Gin, we didn't want to start another bloody business so we kept the name.
