The Hoxton Gin is named after a district in east London and contains, among other things, the botanicals juniper, iris, tarragon and ginger. These are placed in for 5 days before distilling. The Hoxton Gin is then distilled in copper stills that are over 150 years old. Then grapefruit and coconut are added and the gin is stored for another two months in steel kettles so that it has time to develop its aroma. Incidentally, the two latter botanicals, grapefruit and coconut, dominate in smell and taste. Therefore, with its citrus note (from grapefruit) and the slightly sweet coconut aroma, it is wonderful to make a gin fizz! The rosemary in the cocktail emphasizes the remaining herbal botanicals of the Hoxton Gin.
