About Boodles Gin
Boodles Gin is a premium British gin, established in 1845 and produced exclusively in the UK according to the London Dry Gin production standards.
Until 2013, it was only sold in the US and Japan. After Proximo Spirits took ownership from Pernod Ricard, the packaging was redesigned and it was launched in the UK.
Boodles takes its name from Boodle’s gentleman’s club in St. James’s, London and is produced at the Greenalls distillery.
Famous members of Boodle’s gentleman’s club included former Prime Minister Winston Churchill and James Bond author Ian Fleming.

Boodles Gin is made from a clean spirit distilled from British wheat. It is then redistilled in a copper still, to allow the botanicals to infuse into the the spirit.
The botanical recipe includes nutmeg, sage and rosemary, but interestingly contains no citrus in the mix.

How to serve?
Boodles Original London Dry gin can be served as a Gin & Tonic with a wedge of lime and a sprig of rosemary.
