Why Adnams First Rate Gin?

Adnams from grain to glass, our First Rate gin is distilled from three locally-grown grains: barley, wheat and oats. Adnams Masterbrewer, Fergus Fitzgerald, makes a beer 'wash' from these grains which is fermented to around 6% abv without the addition of hops. Our head distiller, John McCarthy, then takes this beer and puts it through a 'beer stripping' column which removes all the alcohols to create a 'low wine' (around 80 - 85% abv). The 'low wines' are subsequently distilled in rectification columns to create a clean, pure spirit. Only the very purest portion of the spirit is drawn off; the finest cut. The spirit is then returned to the copper pot still to be redistilled and infused with thirteen carefully chosen botanicals.
  • Suitable for vegetarians. 

  • We take only the sweetest, purest cut from our hand-made copper pot still to create this fine gin.

  • Serve with good quality tonic water and garnish with a lemon peel twist and sprig of fresh thyme

Adnams First Rate Gin

John, our head distiller, spent several months experimenting with different blends to create the signature First Rate flavour with integrated aromas of juniper berries, spice and fresh citrus.

A Fabulous Gin

A real favourite of mine, complex and interesting fruity and floral flavours make this gin stand out from the crowd. Definitely worth a try.

Up there with the best gins. Great with Tesco finest tonic or any of the Fever tree tonics.
