Alexander’s is smooth and luxurious, intended to be enjoyed straight over ice. A traditionally distilled London Dry, handcrafted in small batches, containing 11 botanicals sourced from 5 continents and complemented by one of the purest waters in the world from natural Scottish mountain springs. This is a juniper forward gin with warming notes of orange and spice.
Once upon a time on a Caribbean beach, Fred Stockton tasted a fantastic orange based spirit, briefly meeting the distiller, which set his creative juices flowing. While travelling home, subliminally linking back to his Orcadian roots, he sketched ‘double X’ on top of one another, the Old Norse symbol for ‘where there’s a will there’s a way’, which would become part of the final brand logo. To this day, Fred never found out the Caribbean distiller’s name, so he crowned him ‘Alexander’ and dedicated this labour of love to the man himself.
London Dry Gin
London Dry Gin is both a flavour profile and a production method. London Dry Gins tend to follow the traditional, classic flavour of piney juniper, citrus and spice. Alongside juniper, botanicals used often include orris root, angelica root, cassia bark, citrus peel and coriander, among the core botanicals. The result is often a dry gin that features piney juniper along with bursts of citrus and warming spice and earthy, dry notes from the use of cassia bark and coriander. Nothing can be added to a London Dry Gin post distillation except a minuscule amount of sugar and water. No artificial flavourings or colourings can be used in the distillation process.
A chance meeting in Royal Deeside with the owners of Lost Loch Spirits Distillery allowed owner Fred to make his dream of creating his own spirit a reality at their local Aberdeenshire Distillery. The Lost Loch team guided from concept, patiently agreeing to many rounds of development and supporting Fred’s wish to fill the still and bottle the batches himself, producing the gin they are now all very proud of. Ultimately Fred would like to have a distillery back home in Stonehaven but like any good gin, it takes time.
