The Producer: Created in 1845, Boodles is named after the Boodles Gentleman’s Club in St. James’s, London. Though distilled there for over a hundred years, Boodles wasn’t available for purchase in the UK until 2013.
The Why:Boodles Gin begins with clean spirit distilled from British wheat and is then infused with a number of traditional herbs and spices including nutmeg, sage, and rosemary. These ingredients add a mellow but herbal quality to Boodles, which balances out the essential piney notes from juniper. Boodles Gin contains no citrus botanicals - a practical decision made by distillers who expected a gin cocktail to include a slice of lemon or lime.
