The Story

Mayfair Gin is produced in London, by a master distiller whose family business is over 300 years old. Using small batch stills to guarantee the highest quality, Mayfair is a classic London Dry Gin.  The stills even have names – Thumbelina and Tom Thumb. The Gin is made in Thumbelina with the vodka in Tom Thumb.

Mayfair Brands were established to source and deliver premium products – founded by 4 partners all with a passion for the drinks business.

Mayfair Gin has been the recipient of numerous awards including double gold at WSWA in Orlando in 2013 and gold at the annual ‘Gin Masters’ competition.

The Gin

Mayfair Gin uses a variety of botanicals including junpier, angelica root, coriander seed, orris which all combine to create a medium bodied gin. Lots of juniper with a slight spiciness with cardamom and coriander and a long finish. It is a fairly well balanced Gin but doesn’t jump out when compared to other similar London dry gins.

Although the bottle is really lovely, deep green, square shaped – quite different to other Gins – it’s got a very sophisticated look.

The Recipe

Mayfair Gin & Tonic – garnish with an apple slice, serve in a highball glass.
