Williams Great British Extra Dry Gin, or GB Gin for short, is made from a potato-based spirit to which is added 10 botanicals including juniper buds, cinnamon, ginger, almond and cloves, he added.

It is a dry gin, designed to be sipped on its own or in classic cocktails such as a G&T.

Chase claims it is the first single-estate English gin to be created in 200 years.

“Our success is because we’re a real distiller, not a large company churning out stuff made from low-quality ingredients,” he said.
