Alexander Gordon started as he meant to go on — by sourcing the finest possible ingredients. His aim was to produce an unsweetened, gloriously-flavoured gin worthy of the highest table and the finest occasion. While remaining true to juniper, the keynote ingredient that gave gin its name, Gordon believed that success lay in the perfect combination of pure distilled grain spirit and rich botanicals.
In 1769, Alexander Gordon founded his world famous distillery in the Southwark area of London. He went on to lay the foundations for the creation of the style of gin for which the English became renowned. Happily, the exacting standards which Alexander Gordon set are maintained to this day. Gordon's® is triple distilled to guarantee the purity of the gin, and the exact blend of the botanicals has remained a closely guarded secret. In 1906, production of Gordon's sloe gin was started, adding another firm favourite to the world. Gordon's opened distilleries worldwide, to keep up with demand and have expanded their range to include Cucumber gin, Elderflower gin and even hit the market with their ready mixed, Gin and mixer cans. Gordon's has stood the test of time, and is one of the top selling brands worldwide.
