Sharp as a barber’s razor…
Until 1745, surgeons and barbers worked side by side. From this year onwards, King George II took the initiative to make a distinction between the two professions and separated the two roles accordingly, resulting in the barber’s responsibilities being limited to the cutting and styling hair and shaving. Despite this, many barbers managed to preserve a particular method widely used in these revoked medical functions which involved the use of gin, the alcoholic drink of that particular period, as a lotion for shaving purposes. Gin was thus incorporated into the practices of some of the most renowned barbers, bringing an air of freshness and aroma to their services.
Barbers London Dry Gin is a clear, clean straightforward example of a London Dry Gin. Distilled three times, this is wonderfully full flavoured gin with string overtones of juniper, coriander and a hint of citrus on the finish. The palate is smooth and complex with a predominance of juniper. Perfect for a Dry Martini!
