5 VERY GOOD REASONS TO FALL IN LOVE WITH BERKELEY SQUARE LONDON DRY GIN

You may have noticed that we are frequenting Morton’s Club lately. We are members, but we are also hooked on GINTESSENTIAL, Berkeley Square Gin’s pop-up bar in one of our favourite Berkeley Square hot spots. In a world where quality is often sacrificed for cost and speed, there is a new dawn for Berkeley Square London Dry Gin.

GINTESSENTIAL will be open to club members and the general public until 28th September, Monday to Friday from 5.30pm onwards. Guests are encouraged to make table reservations by contacting Morton’s Club on 020 7499 0363.

5 Very Good Reasons to Fall in Love:

1.) It is beautifully smooth tasting…

Standing bold and proud in a striking new look bottle, revealed for the first time in the UK this year, every drop of this award-winning gin is distilled to perfection, resulting in the most refined and smoothest tasting gin possible.

2.) It is the epitome of craftsmanship…

What elevates Berkeley Square Gin above its competitors and lead the way in the luxury gin category is the way in which it is made. The meticulous master distiller first triple distills the base spirit using a small copper still before using the bouquet garni technique, taking the four hero ingredients - kaffir lime leaves, lavender, sage and basil - and delicately hand-wrapping them in a muslin cloth, before steeping the clothed parcel in the base spirit for 48 hours to infuse and impart the herbal flavours and essential oils.

The blend of triple distillation and the distinctive infusion process results in a wonderfully delicate and smooth taste that can be enjoyed even sipped neat.

3.) You couldn’t get a more ‘quintessentially Mayfair’ gin…

Berkeley Square Gin evokes the timeless style and elegance associated with London’s most affluent area, Mayfair, through its design, craftsmanship and handmade detailing. The exquisite bottle is shaped like a glass decanter with a silver engraved stopper that has the mechanics to ensure it is always in union with the neck collar, allowing the product to stand proud in the most exclusive of bars.

4.) The bottle is beautiful…

The bottle’s most prominent feature is the iconic lion head knocker that can also be seen adorned on the majestic doors that surround Berkeley Square. Each lion head embellishment is hand polished and placed on each bottle as the ultimate finishing touch, channelling the craftsmanship and care that goes into making this luxurious quintessential British Gin.

5.) It is a luxurious, fine quality gin

Berkeley Square Gin appeals to those with a taste for the finest quality. It is best is best served on the rocks with a basil leaf or as a classic gin martini, letting the natural botanical flavours speak for themselves and allowing the the smoothness and complexity of this refined, luxurious spirit to enthral those lucky enough to try it.

“It takes a gin of outstanding quality to be sipped neat in a martini and Berkeley Square Gin is exactly that, as the GINTESSENTIAL collection goes to show. Its smoothness comes from the way in which it is made with great care and precision, taking inspiration from the culinary world with its use of the Bouquet Garni technique. I am delighted to be able to showcase this to our guests at Morton’s and celebrate the refined taste of Berkeley Square Gin in the most refined of settings, in the very heart of Berkeley Square”, says Constantino Armocida, Morton’s head bartender.
