Award winning London Dry Gin made in Yorkshire

John Robert’s Botanic Request- Exceptional London Dry Gin from Pudsey

Ben Peel and Emelie Nillson only launched their start-up distillery in April last year but within months had won a Global Gin Masters silver award.

And so far this year they have been awarded a silver in the prestigious International Wines and Spirits Competition.

Not bad going for a new gin made in a garage distillery in Pudsey.

But their overnight success followed many years spent in the drinks and hospitality business.

Ben spent nearly five years at the Sipsmith distillery in London where he was their dedicated innovations distiller, then took on the role of a roaming ambassador for Sipsmith to train bar staff and retailers about gin around the world. It’s a tough job…

Emelie has pursued a career in hospitality that has taken her from her Swedish homeland to, amongst other destinations, Switzerland and Australia.

This well-travelled couple have returned to Ben’s roots in Yorkshire to follow their own path.

The Botanic Request is a cut above the usual London Dry, a 41% alc/vol gin, distilled using sonic sound extraction and vacuum techniques to extract the optimum flavours from their chosen botanicals, which, apart from the essential juniper, include star anise, green cardamon and black tea.

As Ben & Emelie say, ‘Celebrate with an exceptional spirit, because in our dictionary, the ‘Usual’ is just another word for boring’.
