Sacred London Dry Gin

Sacred London Dry Gin is their classic juniper forward London Dry Gin. Each of the organically sourced botanicals is distilled under vacuum to create a fresh, creamy, beautifully balanced gin like no other.

It is estimated that back in 18th century London, during the infamous ‘Gin Craze’, there were an astonishing 1,500 distilleries in the capital. Today there are only a handful, the smallest and most unusual being the award-winning Sacred Microdistillery, located in Ian Hart’s family home in Highgate, north London which started in 2008.

The first and smallest commercial distillery of its kind, and certainly the only one based in a residential house, it has quickly built up a loyal and enthusiastic following – Sacred Gin was awarded a Double Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

For many years Ian had collected – and enjoyed drinking – old Bordeaux red wines, but he also appreciated a good gin and tonic. He had often thought about creating his own London Dry Gin and, as a Londoner, he also liked the idea of producing what is traditionally a London product actually in London. In September 2008 he decided to make a serious effort to realise this ambition.

Ian has always been interested in science – he has a degree in Natural Sciences – and decided to turn traditional gin production on its head by using vacuum distillation rather than a traditional pot still.  Vacuum distillation occurs at a much lower temperature (35-45°C) than pot distillation (85-95°C) so the distillates are lusher and fresher – think of the marmalade flavour of cooked oranges versus fresh cut oranges.  Ian enthusiastically set about experimenting with many different gin formulas, distilling dozens of both well-known and obscure botanicals and every Sunday evening he would take his latest gin recipe into his local pub, The Wrestlers, for people to try.

In early 2009 he was persuaded by this ad hoc panel of gin tasters that his 23rd recipe, which has a fresh, creamy and aromatic quality, was the unique gin Ian had been looking for.  It contains 12 botanicals including juniper, cardamom, nutmeg, and Boswellia Sacra (aka Hougary Frankincense) – hence the name, Sacred.
