Verdant Dry Gin is distilled in small batches from the highest quality ingredients in the distillery's pot still ‘Little Eddie’. It is aromatically juniper-led with fresh notes of citrus on the nose and palate with warm, earthy undertones of spice. The gin uses a variety of botanicals including juniper, coriander seed, bitter orange and grains of paradise.
Verdant Spirit Co. is the first commercial distillery in the Scottish city of Dundee for nearly 200 years. After two and half years of planning and lots of red tape, founder Andrew Mackenzie opened the Verdant Spirit Co. in 2017. Verdant Spirit Co. has tried to capture the spirit of Dundee with both its ethos of producing quality spirits using the latest technology available, something the mills of Dundee were famous for, but also the spirit of invention and renovation, by opting to save and renovate the old engine house.
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 in London Dry Gin often include orris root, angelica root, cassia bark, citrus peel and coriander, among the core botanicals. The result is a dry gin that features piney juniper along with bursts of citrus and warming spice and earthy, dry notes from use of botanicals such as cassia bark and coriander. Nothing synthetic can be added like flavourings or colours and nothing can be added post distillation apart from water and a tiny amount of sugar meaning all flavours come from distillation.
The Verdant Spirits Distillery was the first legal distillery in the city of Dundee for almost 200 years. After two and half years of planning, renovation and building work, the distillery officially opened its doors in early 2017. The distillery is set in a Victorian engine house that once powered the Edward Street Mill, which played a role in Dundee’s famous jute and weaving industry.
