Passion, Precision, Perfection.
It took Berry Bros. & Rudd (UK’s oldest wine and spirit merchant) and a dedicated team of distilling experts 730 days to painstakingly create and refine the world’s best gin.
The result is No.3 Gin.
The Difference is in the Details
We strive for perfection in every detail that creates our gin.
To meet our exacting standards, we chose a unique 100-year-old, brick-encased copper pot still in Holland, the home of gin, to achieve a pure and clean spirit.
We carefully sourced the best botanicals from around the world and weigh them down to the last milligram to stay true to our tested recipe.
With the help of Dr. David Clutton, the only person in the world with a PhD on Gin, we’ve created the perfect balance of juniper, citrus & spice. With just the right amount of coriander, angelica root, cardamom, grapefruit peel, sweet orange peel and - of course - juniper, we created No.3 Gin.
Getting Technical About the Technicals
First, our botanicals are precisely weighed and placed in the still with Ultra Pure Grain Alcohol (80% more pure than standard).
The following morning the distillation process is started. The foreshots that emerge at the beginning of the run are collected, separated and removed.
During the second stage, our six botanicals each take centre stage to release their unique flavours. These ‘moments’ are carefully monitored to make sure that we achieve perfection through precision, time after time.
The Master Distiller collects the ‘heart’ of the distillate. At this stage, it’s 76.5% abv – a potent form of the world-class gin it will soon become.
We check, re-check and triple-check the gin, using every one of our senses to ensure that the result is nothing short of spectacular.
Finally, we bring our gin down to a precise 46% abv (not just any random number; carefully selected as the perfect abv for our unique taste) and it’s ready to be packaged, produced and presented.
