The team at Forged have worked tirelessly to perfect our london dry gin, The Original. We spent months tweaking our recipe and procedures to create a gin that is incredibly smooth and dangerously drinkable. Warming cassia bark blends seamlessly with peppery grains of paradise and floral, zesty cardamom pods to create a taste profile that is dry with a slightly spice forward hit on the palate.
The Original has been awarded many times, most recently a Silver in the Global Spirits Masters.
The coveted IWSC awards awarded The Original a silver medal in 2021, describing this gin as having herbal notes that are underpinned by lots of citrus and lime flavours, as well as sweet and tart blackcurrants.
This gin has also been awarded a gold medal at the 2020 London Spirits Competition, a real testament to the high-quality of our premium London Dry.
Our perfect serve would be simply to pair a 50ml serving of our gin with a premium tonic and lots of ice. However, it is also delicious as part of your favourite cocktail, or with a garnish of cucumber or apple.
