About Zephyr Black London Dry Gin
Zephyr Gin is an ultra-premium gin distilled at the Langley Distillery in Birmingham, UK, with a long history and rich heritage in gin making, dating back to the early 1800s. The distillery, which was built over an ancient underground water source, started making gin in 1920, and through continuous improvement developed into a producer of the finest award-winning gins.
Today, the facility also produces neutral alcohols and botanicals. Langley Distillery uses some of the oldest working copper gin stills in the UK, with its oldest still, McKay, dating back to the 1860s. Its capacity is 200 liters, while the capacity of the distillery’s newest still, Jenny, which was built by McMillians in 1994, is 12,000 liters. The distillery produces gins with traditional methods, using the highest quality neutral alcohol and botanicals to create the finest gins. The gin’s unique flavor comes from carefully selected botanicals, which are precisely weighted and macerated overnight with an ethanol and water solution. Once infused with the essential oils, the liquid is ready for distillation.
Zephyr Black London Dry Gin is a traditional ultra-premium London dry gin with a twist: its botanical profile includes elderberry and elderflower among the 16 carefully chosen botanicals. Bottled at 80 proof, it's an innovative and adventurous twist on a classic gin, which owes its name to the Greek and Roman God of the West Wind to symbolize a fresh breeze in the spirits world.
