The 86 Co.
Some of our favorite gins are born from a partnership. Fords Gin is one of them.
Created by 8th generation Master Distiller Charles Maxwell and gin expert Simon Ford, Fords Gin is a British gin with a global spin. A model juniper base is blended with 15 botanicals, including Spanish lemon peel, Chinese Jasmine, and bitter orange from Haiti – all sourced by the legendary botanical suppliers Joseph Flach & Sons Ltd.
These ingredients are then stepped for 15 hours, distilled for five, and then, for a final international twist, it’s cut with pure California spring water.
The fruit of this process is a well-rounded, juniper-forward medley that’s at once classic and wholly original.
Pairs Well With:
Our first go-to Fords cocktail was a Ford and tonic, but a friend suggested we use it in a gin bramble cocktail. We’re glad we took her advice, and hope you will, as well.
Regardless of your preference, Fords Gin’s international ingredients lend themselves well to a night filled with music, art, and/or ideas from around the world – something built around learning from and appreciating cultures not your own.
