GIN FOR CHAMPIONS
I named Boxer Gin in honour of the gin-loving boxer Tom King, who in 1863 became the first Heavyweight Champion of the World. Hard as nails, he fought bare-knuckle and famously knocked back a tot of gin before every bout for good luck. Boxer Gin was created for just such moments…a gin for champions!
To create such a gin only the very best ingredients would do. At the heart of Boxer Gin is our quest to find the world’s finest Juniper berry, and capture it in its perfect state.
This search led us to the Himalayas and the wild juniper forests on the slopes of Mount Everest. Our berries are harvested at peak ripeness and steam distilled fresh on the mountainside to capture every nuance of flavour. This botanical elixir is balanced with fresh bergamot from Southern Italy and then meticulously blended into a heritage gin that we distil in England using a classic Victorian recipe and a 115 year old, antique copper pot still.
