Cadenhead's Classic Gin


A robust, juniper-heavy gin, bottled at 50% ABV. This higher than normal strength gives very good flavours when the gin is used in mixed drinks. We recommend it for a Gimlet.


Raymond Chandler's novel The Big Sleep features the definitive recipe for a Gimlet:

"We sat in the corner bar at Victor's and drank gimlets. "They don't know how to make them here," he said. "What they call a gimlet is just some lime or lemon juice and gin with a dash of sugar and bitters. A real gimlet is half gin and half Rose's Lime Juice and nothing else. It beats martinis hollow.""
