Gordon's London Dry Gin was developed by Alexander Gordon, a Londoner of Scottish heritage, he opened the distillery in 1769 in the Southwark area of London, which at the time was well known for its excellent, clean water supply. The Special London Dry Gin he developed proved successful, and its recipe remains unchanged, and the exact recipe has been kept a secret since 1769. In 1898 Gordon & Co. merged with Charles Tanqueray to form Tanqueray Gordon & Co. The following year ending the family association with Gordon’s ended with the death of Charles Gordon.
Ever wondered why Gordon’s Gin features a boar’s head on the label and the lids? Well, legend has it that a member of the Gordon clan saved the King of Scotland from a wild boar whilst out hunting and in self honour the family added the Boar’s head to their coat of arms.
Gordon’s Gin has remained unchanged in its green iconic bottle, however in recent years there has been an explosion of flavoured variants maximising on Britain’s love affair of all things Gin. Gordon’s London Gin is a traditional heavy juniper lead Gin but some of the new flavours couldn’t be further from the original. Have you tried Gordon’s Pink, Gordon’s Sloe, Gordon’s Sicilian Lemon, Gordon’s Mediterranean Orange, Gordon’s Tropical Passionfruit, Gordon’s Morello Cherry or Gordon’s White Peach?

If you can type it, we can engrave it! When using alternative languages it may be neccessary for us to alter the font to ensure all characters are supported, in these cases we use the closest style font to your original selection.
Unfortunatley we are unable to engrave emoji's or picture characters. Where these are added the character will be removed from your message.
We specially select the fonts we use. Once a bottle has been engraved the cut glass is then infilled with a special decorative silver paste. These fonts ensure we provide the optimum width and depth during the engraving process to creat maximum visibility once infilled.
