Gordons London Dry Gin is the same great award-winning gin as the classic green Gordon’s bottle, different label & bottle to celebrate the first export out of the UK in the early 1900’s.
Almost 250 years ago, Alexander Gordon started his distillery in London and set about creating the recipe for a brilliant tasting gin. Gordons London Dry Gin high quality and distinctive juniper flavour has come to define the taste of the classic G&T.
Gordon’s today is a gin that’s enjoyed, not dissected. It’s the perfect gin to start a Friday evening, or a Tuesday night catch up with friends, where we share a moment and have a laugh with people we love.
In 1769 Alexander Gordon set up a distillery in Southwark, an area famed for its clean water supplies, and got to work sourcing only the finest ingredients for his gins and perfecting the art of distillation. Gordon’s created one of the very first London Dry gins and is one of the first to be mixed with tonic.

Today, the love of Gordon’s has spread so far that is now the No.1 international Gin, exported to over 180 countries. 250 years young, Gordon’s has continued to maintain the innovation and production standards set by its founder Alexander Gordon, never compromising on taste and quality.
