This English spirit is Manchester's branded gin that has been named after an eighteenth century gin pioneer Thomas Dakin. This small batch gin has been launched under the Quintessential Brands.

Joanne Moore of G&J Distillers is the master distiller behind this new English spirit. The delightful and refreshing spirit is made with traditional juniper and it incorporates orange peels, coriander and red cole along with eight other botanical influences.

Thomas Dakin is the founder of this gin company that is known today as G&J Greenall. It is appropriately named after this gin pioneer who had a mission to bring elegance and sophistication to gin as a divine spirit.

This gin is currently only available at Harvey Nichols in Manchester, but there are plans to spread the product through luxury retailers in the United Kingdom.
