The Story

D1 London Gin was launched in 2014 as the first product by D.J. Limbrey Distilling Co, founded by Dominic Limbrey. The ‘D’ in the name refers to Dominic and the ‘1’ refers to it being their first product.  When spoken in Mandarin, D1 also translates to “Second to None” and that epitomises exactly what Dominic tasked himself when creating their signature London dry Gin. An engineer and innovator by trade, Dominic’s ambition was to create the smoothest London Dry Gin possible, without the need for artificial sweeteners or flavours.

There are 9 botanicals, including nettles, almonds and citrus peels! The bottle displays the ‘Floral Skull’ artwork created by Chinese artist Jacky Tsai. By fusing the finest British Gin with the artwork Jacky Tsai, Dominic has created a multi-award winning Best of British Gin.

The Gin

D1 London Gin

Distilled in small batches in copper pots, Dominic took an exceptionally narrow cut of triple distilled grain spirit, and then worked with a Master Tea Blender to combine juniper betties and bespoke botanicals, including coriander, orange, lemon peel, angelica root, cassia bar, almond, and liquorice for distillation. Finally, a daring kick of carefully selected nettles are added to create a unique 40% ABV gin with British character.

Perfect Serve:  twist on a classic. Serve 50ml of D1 London Gin over rocks. Pour a premium tonic. Complete with fresh mint leaf. Vibrant, aromatic and perfect with D1’s blackcurrant nose.
