Sacred gin is proof of just how versatile the distilling process is. Mr Ian Hart (the owner and distiller), makes his gin in the kitchen of his London house: a throwback to the Gin Craze of the 1700s, when everyone and their mum had a gin still running out back.
The beauty of this gin is just how many variations there are. He's come up with Christmas Pudding Gin, Pink Grapefruit Gin, and Cardamom Gin, to name but a few. The original is gorgeous too, with notes of cardamom, nutmeg, and frankincense.
If you have to pick just one though, Tony Kousoulou, bartender at East London Liquor Company, recommends going for the cardamom variation:
"This is an outstanding gin from Ian Hart's back catalogue of gins. It takes one key flavour from the original gin (cardamom) and makes it the focus. Thanks to the citrus and cardamom spice, this gin makes an amazing gimlet, last word and, weirdly enough, an espresso martini. If you like punchy flavours and homemade produce, this is the gin for you."
Notes: cardamom, nutmeg, and frankincense
Perfect serve: a gimlet, last word, or espresso martini
