Fifty Pounds Gin

A crisp, clean, classic London dry Gin, The bottles are inspired by the first gin bottles to have been created, known as case gin. Each bottle bears the individual distillation batch number, together with the year that it was distilled. It’s a nice touch and the wide necked bottles are both eye catching and continue the historical background


About the Brand

Launched in 2010 and made at Thames distillery, Fifty Pounds Gin is made with a grain spirit base where the botanicals are steeped in this alcohol for at least two days, after which it is distilled. The exact botanical line is kept secret but thought to contain 11 in total. Fifty Pounds gin is distilled in small quantities, and in single batches. The name comes from the time of George II and the 1736 Gin Act, when a 50 pound tax was levied on those wishing to produce and sell gin. Only two distilleries agreed to pay the tax!

Tasting Notes



Made in batches of around 1000 bottles at a time, Fifty Pounds Gin is a London Dry Gin through and through. AT 43.5% the aroma is classic with lemon and piney juniper coming to the fore. To taste, Fifty Pounds Gin is more assertive – Juniper is followed by coriander, rounded citrus and angelica. With a long finish, the flavours carry well.
