Launched in July 2014, Burleigh’s London dry gin is distilled with 11 botanicals including silver birch, dandelion, burdock, elderberry and iris, which master distiller, Jamie Baxter, was inspired to use whilst walking in the Burleigh Wood nature reserve adjacent to the distillery. Burleigh’s London Dry Gin is the first product to emerge from 45 West Distillers, based on a farm near Charnwood Forest in Leicestershire.
Burleigh’s Export Strength Gin is a full bodied, flavoursome gin. Bright juniper, (backed up by sweet herbal notes) carries through from the bouquet onto the palate. With bold juniper and citrus in abundance, there’s also a sense of sweet, floral spice, of pepper and pine. Lemon citrus is notable on a long, dry finish.
