Gordon’s have got you covered for Dry (ish) January!

Is anyone trying to cut down a little this January? Gordon’s have created their Ultra Low Alcohol G&T flavoured drinks as a delicious alternative. They still have the complexity of a G&T, but with less than 0.5% ABV and 68 calories per serve!

The Story

Gordon’s is so well known around the world and has almost 250 years of experience! It’s been awarded four Royal Warrants and an impressive selection of international gin prizes. 

Alexander Gordon’s passion for business began to take shape in 1769. He built a distillery in Southwark, London which was well known for its excellent, clean water supply. Then he mastered the art of distilling a gin of high standards that could be trusted and enjoyed by all.

Gordon’s created the classic gin character to make the perfect G&T with a clean, juniper dominant taste.

GORDON’S ULTRA LOW flavours

Gordon’s have created a low-alcohol option which contains a hint of Gordon’s London Dry gin. The new drink has the “unmistakable botanical blend’” of Gordon’s gin – which contains botanicals including juniper, coriander seeds, angelica root, liquorice, orris root and lemon and orange peel. They are ready-to-drink, come in lovely bottles, and are perfectly blended with natural fruit extracts to produce two flavour variants.

Production

The Gordons London Dry Gin profile was very much at the forefront of the development at each stage. To make Gordon’s Ultra-Low/Non-Alcoholic Gin & Tonic they use a small amount of Gordon’s distillate, a very concentrated extract of Gordon’s gin that brings authenticity and credibility to the flavour profile. It infuses further flavour into the product yet keeping below the alcoholic threshold to be classified as an Ultra-Low/Non-Alcoholic drink.

The liquid was created by the Europe Liquid Development team based in the Diageo R&D plant in Woodside, Hertfordshire. The developers have a strong knowledge of the Gordon’s brand via visits to the Gordon’s supply sites and time spent at the Diageo archive. During the product development stage, the team visited Cameronbridge, spending time with Supply colleagues to ensure Gordon’s is at the core of the liquid. To ensure the liquid is truly delicious, they have selected additional botanicals to craft a complex ultra-low/non-alcoholic drink. The liquid team has worked with experts in gin production, and botanicals and tonic water production to create the product and ensure it is perfectly balanced.

 

Gordon’s Ultra Low Alcohol G&T with a Hint of Grapefruit

Well balanced finished, with strong interplay between peppery juniper flavours followed by a juicy citrus uplift. Pour the bottle into a copa glass full of ice and garnish with a wedge of grapefruit. Try not to squeeze the fruit garnish as it overpowers the drink!

A dry and more classic G&T best served with lots of ice and a slice of lime. Do not squeeze the lime though!
