Description: 1751 refers to the Gin Act of 1751, which was an Act of the Parliament of Great Britain. It was passed for the purpose of curbing the consumption of spirits, known as The Gin Craze, which was believed to be the reason for the rise of crime in London at the time. Gin Lane is a full-bodied London Dry gin with a strong juniper and star anise nose and a clean citrus finish.
Definition: London Dry Gin doesn't have to be made in the U.K., however, the dominant flavor should be that of the Juniper botanical. Gins' base spirit is made by fermenting and distilling almost any agricultural product (known as a mash) - most use corn, barley, or wheat. It is distilled to over 96% ABV, and then, London Dry gin must be redistilled to at least 70% ABV without artificial ingredients, sweeteners, or colour added. During this redistillation, Juniper, the dominant botanical, is added along with other botanicals of the distillers choice (anise, angelica, orris and/or licorice root, savory, coriander, citrus peel, etc.).
