Dodd's Gin: a unique gin from the London Distillery Company
Dodd's Gin is produced in Battersea, London. This gin is uniquely crafted to produce a delicious spirit which is a fine example of English gin mastery. The majority of the organic ingredients are distilled in 'Christina', a traditional 140 litre copper alembic. The botanicals which need a bit more care are reserved for a cold vacuum still, affectionately called 'Little Albion'. The resulting spirits from both processes are then given a few weeks to get to know each other before being bottled and given the iconic Dodd's Gin label. Dodd's Gin is named after Ralph Dodd, an all-round genius with a special interest in engineering. Dodd's legacy lives on in a great-tasting spirit.
Like virtually all gins, Dodd's features juniper. This dark bluish-purple berry has a splendid aroma and is a staple of many gins, with the exception of a few experimental brands. Dodd's Gin is made with many other botanicals, all of which go perfectly with the juniper. Angelica, fresh lime peel, bay laurel, red raspberry leaf, cardamom, and honey from London are among some of the high-quality ingredients included in Dodd's Gin.
An environmentally-friendly gin, that's Dodd's Gin
Dodd's Gin is one of many products which the London Distillery Company is responsible for. Based in London (no surprise there), the distillery was launched in 2011 after a successful crowd-funding campaign. The founders wanted to open London's first whisky distillery in over 100 years and Dodd's is one of their first products. The distillery is also very eco and all botanicals are 100% organic, even approved by the Soil Association. The labels for Dodd's Gin are made from carbon neutral paper, made, in turn, using wind power. Additionally, two trees are planted for every cask used for Dodd's Gin and the leftover grain is given to local bakeries. Pretty much every step of the Dodd's Gin production process, like all other spirits produced by the distiller, is environmentally-friendly and green. Even the honey in Dodd's Gin is produced locally by the London Honey Company. So no need to feel guilty when enjoying Dodd's Gin, they've got it covered.
On tasting, Dodd's is a distinctive blend of juniper, angelica, and spicy cardamom. After a few sips, the citrus notes of Dodd's come through and the various flavours tickle your tongue. The gin is rich and full bodied due to the locally-sourced honey. All this and more makes Dodd's into a unique, striking spirit.
