Experience gin perfection
Passion, precision, perfection
No.3 is on a relentless journey to pursue Gin Perfection. Crafted in collaboration with Dr. David Clutton, the only person in the world to hold a PhD in Gin, its creation starts with six botanicals; each one precisely weighed out to achieve a seamless blend of flavour. The botanicals are then added to a unique 100-year-old, brick-encased copper pot still in Holland, where they’re steeped in ultra-pure grain spirit for 16 hours.
The next day, distillation begins, with the Master Distiller later collecting the ‘heart’ of the distillate to be triple-checked – it’s the only way to ensure it’s nothing short of spectacular! The gin is then brought down to a precise 45% abv (the perfect abv for the brand’s unique taste) and is ready to be bottled and, more importantly, enjoyed!
