The nose of No.3 Gin is bright, crisp and fresh with an uplifting welcome of juniper. The palate has juniper to the fore, supported by floral notes and spicy, warm cardamom. Plenty of citrus ‘zing’ complemented by the gingery spiciness of coriander. On the finish the earthy dryness of angelica kicks in.
No.3 Gin is the London Dry Gin distilled to a proprietary recipe of Berry Bros. & Rudd, London’s oldest wine and spirit merchant.
The name No.3 refers to the address in St James’s Street, London: our home since 1698. No.3 was created to be the last word in gin for a Dry Martini.
With juniper at its heart, it unashamedly celebrates the integrity and character of a classic London Dry Gin: six perfectly balanced botanicals distilled in traditional copper pot stills
Just three fruits and three spices, collectively known as botanicals, are all they deem essential to the flavour of No.3 London Dry Gin.
Juniper, from Italy, not only gives gin its name, but also the unmistakable gin taste of pine and lavender. Sweet Spanish orange peel provides freshness in the form of clean, crisp citrus. Grapefruit peel gives an extra zingy lift.
Angelica root delivers an earthy quality and helps to make the gin dry. Moroccan coriander seed releases a lemon flavour and a spicy, slightly peppery finish. And finally, cardamom pods which add a spicy, aromatic, yet warm bite.
The St James’s Street area of London, where Berry Bros. & Rudd has been located for over 310 years, has a fascinating history. In the early 1500s, the area was largely meadow and woodland. There was just a tiny settlement outside the city walls, with a convent hospital for leprosy victims called St James – which gave the area its name.
King Henry VIII enjoyed riding here with Anne Boleyn or to hunt deer. So in 1532 he acquired the land, demolished the hospital and built a hunting lodge – St James’s Palace. This served as a retreat from the gossip of Westminster and a love nest for him and Anne Boleyn.
The palace laid the foundations for developing the surrounding area and by 1662 Henry Jermyn had begun his ambitious building programme, starting with St James’s Square.
