5 Stars / "Highest Recommendation" - F. Paul Pacult's Spirits Journal
The 86 Company is comprised of notable industry experts Simon Ford, Jason Kosmos, Dushan Zaric, Malte Barnekow and Kris Roth. Created for mixing, their high quality spirits were formulated in partnership with highly respected artisanal distillers, as well as recognized cocktail professionals. The distinctive bottle design was developed with the career bartender in mind and features an ergonomic shape that allows for easy handling and pouring.
Distilled in London at Thames Distillers, Fords Gin is created from a blend of nine botanicals: juniper from Italy, coriander from Romania, lemon peel from Spain, bitter orange peel from Haiti and Morocco, grapefruit peel from Turkey, angelica from Poland, cassia from Indonesia, jasmine from China and finally, orris from Italy and Morocco. After distillation, the gin was shipped to the Charbay Distillery in California where it was cut down to proof with pristine water from a well in Mendocino County. The resulting spirit is exceptionally aromatic and refreshing, with a bold juniper foundation beautifully balanced by bright citrus and elegant floral notes.
