Bermondsey Distillery is the home of Jensen’s Gin. Bermondsey in the mid-19th Century was both a centre for trade and industry, and a notorious slum. Close to the River Thames and crammed with wharves and warehouses, it was the place where London’s food was produced and stored.
These days the warehouses are restaurants, and the weekend food markets provide delicacies for locals
and visitors alike. And so Bermondsey continues its legacy as ‘London’s Larder’. Distilling our historical gins in a converted railway arch with trains thundering overhead, Bermondsey Distillery are proud to be a part of that tradition.
When Christian Jensen first tasted the vintage gins from London’s lost distilleries, he began a journey. Creating a finely balanced gin that honoured these forgotten recipes became his obsession.
That’s why Jensen’s is distilled in small batches, using only traditional gin botanicals. So there’s really nothing new about Jensen’s, and that’s why it’s different. Distilled in Bermondsey, London, Jensen’s is gin as it was. Gin as it should be.
Jensen’s Bermondsey Dry gin is a recreation of a classic, old-fashioned London Dry style. Smooth and rounded, with delicate floral and citrus notes it is an essential gin for a Dry Martini.
Appearance: Gin clear.
Nose: Musky floral aroma, balanced by citrus and juniper.
Tasting Notes: Soft luscious mouthfeel giving way to aromatics, gentle spice to complement light aromatics on nose. Citrus finish.
Base Spirit: Pure British wheat spirit.
Jensen’s is available in venues such as Balthazar, The Savoy, Selfridges, Fortnum & Mason, The Connaught Hotel, Fera at Claridges and The Mandarin Oriental among many others.
Bermondsey Distillery also produce Jensen’s Old Tom Gin. Our Old Tom recipe was taken from a distiller’s handbook from the 1840s. It is a true Old Tom gin, similar to those used by the bartenders of the mid-to-late 1800s. Unsweetened and earthy, it has a deep flavour that adds complexity to many drinks.
