True artisan gins handcrafted from botanical to bottle in the heart of England.
Nestled deep in the Charnwood Forest you will find Bawdon Lodge Farm, the home of the 45 West Distillery and Burleighs London Dry Gin. A beautiful location surrounded by vast countryside, it is here that Burleighs Gin master distiller, Jamie Baxter, found inspiration for the Burleighs London Dry Gin recipe.
Whilst walking through Burleigh wood adjacent to the distillery, Baxter came across silver birch, dandelion, burdock, elderberry and iris. Enthused by his find, these botanicals went on to inspire the first recipe and it seemed only fitting that this ancient Leicestershire woodland site also gave the gin its name.
A truly artisan creation, Burleighs London Dry Gin is distilled on our beautiful copper pot still nicknamed 'Messy Bessy'. The 450 litre copper pot still was custom made for us by Arnold Holstein of Markdorff, Germany. It is this design, accompanied by the careful sourcing of ingredients and the great skill of the distiller that all contribute to the smooth nature of Burleighs Gin.
