Bimber Distillery might be the new kid on the block in London’s burgeoning distillation scene. Their first products hit shelves in early 2016, but their name and perspective is less London and more Kraków.
Their gin formula is a bit closer to home however. Beginning with a relatively traditional blend of botanicals, they distill them in copper still with a wheat base spirit.
Bimber London Dry Gin has a quiet nose at first pour, with nutmeg, cinnamon and coriander primarily, peppery pine-led juniper a little more distant. The peppery quality seems to build over time, becoming a bit more coriander and black peppercorn, and then even more coriander.
