Superbly spicy saffron gin

Here in England we’ve been drinking gin for hundreds of years. Some would say it shows. But we’re not listening to them, because we’ve discovered a fascinating variety that combines the best of British with the rich flavours of India; and a generous serving of French know-how.

With its golden colour and delicately-spiced flavour, Saffron Gin is a world away from the usual clear spirit. It dates back as far as colonial times; when Britain and France were busy painting India red white and blue. In this rich melting pot, London dry gin was distilled with coriander, lemon, orange peel, angelica seeds, iris, fennel and Indian saffron – creating a spirit that was smooth enough to drink over ice, but terrific with tonic.

This delicate drink was lost in the years that followed, but it has been rediscovered (and perfected) by France's leading micro-distiller Gabriel Boudier of Dijon. So make the most of it now, before it disappears again. Pour it over ice, mix it with tonic, or mix up a warm and spicy cocktail or two – it’s what our ancestors would have wanted.
