About Ford's Gin Officers' Reserve Navy Strength Gin
Ford's Gin is distilled at Thames Distillers in London in collaboration with eleventh-generation Master Distiller Charles Maxwell. The gin came to be when founder Simon Ford set out to create the ultimate cocktail gin. Together with a group of bartenders, distillers, and professional drinkers, he settled on the 9-botanical recipe with juniper berries from Italy, coriander seeds from Romania, lemon peel from Spain, orange peels from Haiti and Morocco, grapefruit peels from Turkey, angelica from Poland, cassia from Indonesia, jasmine from China and orris root from Italy. Released in 2019, Officers' Reserve Navy Strength Gin is crafted with the same botanicals, then rested in Amontillado sherry casks for 3 weeks before being bottled at 109 proof.

According to Winston Churchill, "The gin and tonic has saved more Englishmen's lives and minds than all the doctors in the Empire," referring to the British officers using it to treat malaria in India.
Initially made for medicinal purposes, gin gets most of its flavor from the juniper berries added after the distillation process. It sure has come a long way from the Middle Ages, with the introduction of new botanicals, fruits, and spices, bringing it closer to people of all flavor varieties.
