Gin has always been something of an obsession for Steve and Viv Muir. When they started, their ambition was to create the ‘perfect’ gin. The London Dry process is recognised as being the most exacting and meticulous way to create great gin in small batches. So naturally, they followed this process. They began by experimenting in their home kitchen with a pressure cooker and some old central heating pipes – hardly glamorous, but their makeshift ‘still’ was a great way to test hundreds of different botanicals with water to see which worked together the best. When they were confident of a possible recipe, they were granted a license and progressed to a glass, desktop lab still. Their kitchen became an official ginnery. They distilled, refined and distilled again – over hundreds of batches and thousands of hours – before finally they created the gin they believed was ‘perfect’. A gin that was worthy of putting their name to. Their own Original NB Gin. Having perfected their recipe, they invested in a custom-built still made to their exact specifications by the world’s oldest and most revered still-makers. A still that would be able to precisely replicate their tried and tested recipe. It was time to move out of their kitchen and into their new distillery. Within two years, their gin won admirers from near and far and in 2015 was voted the Best London Dry Gin in the world. They achieved what they originally set out do: to create perfection that’s recognised globally. NB will always remain a small company, only ever using the London Dry process, believing in its people and their skills, and working as hard as ever. And when Steve and Viv put the NB name on a bottle, they promise that inside will be every bit as ‘perfect’ as their Original Gin.NB Gin is created using the exacting and meticulous London Dry process. This means that all of its flavours only come from the essential oils released from the botanicals through the distillation process. No flavour can be added by any other means. Only the finest 8 botanicals are used to make NB Gin: juniper; coriander seed; angelica root; grains of paradise; cassia bark; ground cardamom; lemon peel and orris root powder. The consistently high quality of these botanicals ensures perfection between the small batches distilled.
Where others add a concentrated flavour at the end, the exacting and meticulous London Dry process distils the botanicals naturally to create pure, elegant and subtle citrus tones. No additives. No sweeteners. Just dry, smooth perfection. Neat, or with a dash of water, NB London Dry Citrus Vodka’s full character can be truly savoured and appreciated without being masked by any other flavours. On tasting there’s a real hit of citrus, starting with lemon and then moving to lime and finally orange notes.
