Made by gin connoisseur Ros ‘Queen of G & Tea’ Nelmes (she also runs gin talks and tea parties) in Dorchester, Fordington is one of Dorset’s newest gins.
Ros has cleverly created a crisp, refreshing London dry gin with an homage to absinthe through the unique blend of botanicals she uses.
With “Gurt Lush” she has moved up to a “seafaring” strength of 50%. Somewhere between “Export” an “Navy”. The higher ABV carries the star anise aftertaste more clearly. It also gives a nice warm glow if taken straight.
