London No. 1 Gin was launched in MO Bar in Mandarin Oriental Hotel Kuala Lumpur on 13 April 2018, though the brand is not new to the market.

Brand Ambassador Boris Ivan gave an introduction of the gin and made several cocktails to showcase the flavour of the only blue gin in the world.

Distilled in London under the ownership of Spanish company Gonzalez Byass which also produces Tio Pepe sherry, the colour of the London No. 1 recalls the hazy gins of the 19th century. Triple distilled using pot still distillation with grains from Suffolk and Norfolk and 12 different botanicals, its turquoise blue colour comes from a maceration of Spirulina after distillation.

The gin’s fragrance comes from the use of 60% juniper with a body of orris root, angelica spiciness, liquorice sweet bitterness and zesty orange and lemon peel. You will detect an undertone of bergamot, the cinnamon and cassia bark giving an aftertaste with a clean mouthfeel.
