Around 250 years ago, Alexander Gordon started his distillery, in London, and set about creating the recipe for a brilliant-tasting gin. Gordon’s high-quality, distinctive juniper flavour has come to define the taste of the classic G&T.
Today, Gordon’s is the world’s number-one best-selling gin. Awarded four royal warrants and an impressive selection of international gin prizes, Gordon’s London dry gin is among Wetherspoon’s gin palace choices.
Made with only the finest botanicals, including the top 10 per cent of juniper berries worldwide, all carefully distilled to create its distinctively refreshing taste. It is bold and juniper led, with a super-smooth texture.
You can also now enjoy the NEW Gordon’s Sicilian Lemon at Wetherspoon.
Made from its London dry gin, with Sicilian lemons, the new flavour from the Scottish gin distillery is ‘summertime in the Med’… in a glass.
A Mediterranean twist on an original recipe from Alexander Gordon, this is made with the highest-quality ingredients and uses only natural flavourings and colourings.
It is perfectly crafted to balance the juniper notes and refreshing taste of Gordon’s with the finest juicy Sicilian lemons – for an outstandingly refreshing and zesty-tasting gin.
This new gin flavour completes a trio of Wetherspoon offerings from Gordon’s, with Gordon’s Pink Gin also being served in our gin palace collection.
Inspired by an original Gordon’s recipe from the 1880s, Gordon’s Pink is perfectly crafted to balance the refreshing taste of Gordon’s with the natural sweetness of raspberries and strawberries, with the tang of redcurrant served up in a unique blushing tone.
It is made using only natural fruit flavours to guarantee the highest-quality real berry taste.
History of Gordon’s
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. He then mastered the art of distilling a gin of high standards which could be trusted and enjoyed by all.
Gordon believed that the success of his gin lay in its perfect combination of pure distilled grain spirit and rich botanicals. The exacting standards which he set are maintained to this day.
Did you know? On the lid of any bottle of Gordon’s gin, you will find a boar’s head.
Legend has it that, while out hunting, a Gordon clan member saved the Scottish king from a wild boar. Ever since, the ancestors of Alexander Gordon have sported a boar’s head on their coat of arms.
