Plymouth gin was founded in Plymouth in 1793 by the Fox & Williamson company and is the oldest operating gin distillery in England. The distillery was built in a much older building which dates back to 1431 and was known to have been a monastery of the Dominican Order and has traditionally been known as the “Blackfriars Distillery”. In acknowledgement of their history each bottle has Est. 1793 – Black Friars Distillery embossed into the glass. Did you know in the very bottom corner of each bottle there is a picture of monk that is level with the bottom of the bottle, Plymouth Gin have a saying that when the Monks feet are dry, ie. The bottle is empty, it’s time to order another bottle.
