Spirit of the Rock are the Gibraltar Gin Distillers producing excellent gins to enjoy anyway you like
Gin the Gibraltar way
Packing a punch at 48% ABV, our first copper stilled Gibraltar Gin certainly had to be a London Dry Gin to honour the 300 year bond with the U.K. and the armed forces.
Above all Spirit of the Rock gin is traditional in many respects: strong on Juniper with Coriander; Liquorice; Cassia; Orange; Lemongrass; Cardamon and Clove.
Furthermore the harmonising stars are the unusual addition of Carob pods , Rosebuds and Campion seeds.
The perfect Gin
Strong, smooth and memorable. Perfect in a very Dry Martini, also excellent in a Negroni, and refreshing in a Gin and Tonic (Fever-tree Mediterranean) with a twist of orange.
Our original Campion recipe combines the essential botanicals Juniper, Coriander, Orris and Angelica with classic liquorice, cardamon, cassia bark, clove and orange.
However, the addition of Lemongrass, Rose, Carob and Campion gives this London Dry Gin a deep, well rounded and sophisticated note worthy of the “ Spirit of the Rock” brand. Its mellowness belies its strength of 48% ABV.
