Barbers Gin 70cl

  • In stock
Ever wondered about the old fashioned red and white wrapped pole outside the barber's? This dates back to the times when surgery and barbery were considerd one job - red for blood and white for bandages (or shaving cream). After 1745, when the medical practices were split into their own profession, the barbers took two things with them; the red and white sign, and the practice of using gin as an alcohol cleanser. This Barber's Gin is not an aftershave (though it could probably work well as one!), but is a traditional gin as it would have been found in this era. Not the heavy citrus burst of many gins on the shelf today, but a creation of only 4 botanicals which create a clean, juniper-lead herbal gin.
Botanicals: Croatian Juniper, Moroccan Coriander, Spanish Thyme, French Angelica Root
Size: 70cl
ABV: 40%
