Boodles Gin is a classic London dry gin that was first made in 1740. It’s named after Boodle’s gentleman’s club, which was frequented by Winston Churchill and James Bond author Ian Fleming. This gin is made with traditional botanicals like juniper berries, coriander seeds, and angelica roots. It has a smooth, mellow flavour profile that makes it perfect for sipping on its own or mixing into cocktails.
Boodles was created in 1845, becoming one of the gins to shape the flavour of the modern London Dry style of gin, which is essentially a vodka-like spirit infused or otherwise flavored with a blend of botanical herbs and spices. It was originally produced by Cock Russell & Company, and was first bottled in the United States by Seagram’s. In 2001, Seagram’s assets were sold to several companies, including Pernod Ricard, which took over Boodles. In 2012, Boodles was purchased by Proximo Spirits of New Jersey.
