The first and original London dry gin, Greenall’s available in south Africa

Not a lot of gin producers can claim to be the first and original London Dry Gin, but Greenall’s is the exception to this.

B2C Premium Drinks has launched Greenall’s Original London Dry Gin and Greenall’s Wild Berry Pink Gin in South Africa with plans to introduce more of the first and original London Dry Gin’s portfolio to South African consumers in the next few months.

Greenall’s is a juniper-led gin with fresh citrus notes made using the same secret recipe for over 250 years, in the heart of England in Warrington, using 100% British wheat and pure Cheshire water. The eight botanicals that make up Greenall’s Gin are lovingly handpicked and sourced from across the world and include such delights as Tuscan juniper berries, Moroccan coriander and Spanish lemon peel.

The entire process of crafting Greenall’s Gin is overseen by Greenall’s 7th Master Distiller, Joanne Moore. Joanne focuses on crafting exceptional new gins for the Greenall’s portfolio, all the while managing the tasting panel in charge of ensuring every batch is produced to perfection. Moore has been awarded for her efforts as well, with Greenall’s winning several accolades in the past few years, including two Gold Medals in the Fifty Best Gins, making her the most awarded gin distiller in the U.K.
