Importer Vin Divino introduced González Byass’ London No. 1 gin in the United States. Initially available in New York and Florida, the 47 percent alcohol by volume gin contains 12 key botanicals, including juniper, coriander, angelica root, lemon peel, licorice, cinnamon, almond, savory, iris root, orange peel and bergamot. It is quadruple distilled in London and uses the small-batch pot-still method to ensure consistent quality, the company says. The gin is finished with bergamot oil, delivering an aroma of Earl Grey tea, it adds. A 700-ml bottle retails for approximately $38.99.
