A gin with geranium extracts has joined the premium London Dry Gin stable.

The brand, which is being launched in the UK by Hammer & Son through UK wholesaler Coe Vintners, is the concept of gin expert Henrik Hammer, who set himself the challenge of creating a gin that was dry and at the same time aromatic.

He hoped to create a gin that could be used with crisp mixers, such as tonic and vermouth, and fruity mixers like juices and berries.

With the help of his chemist father, Hammer managed to mature and distil the geranium, which has been used for centuries for healing purposes, in order to get the oils that were needed.

The challenge was to get the oils out of the geranium by distilling it in alcohol to ensure it remained a London gin, rather than using the traditional vapour and steam pressure.

Geranium Premium London Dry Gin is smooth and well balanced, with a delicate taste of juniper and an aroma from the geranium.
