70cl * 41.5% ABV * Surrey, England
Jonathan Clark established and ran the City of London Distillery off Fleet Street before launching Wessex, a family-run operation, in Witley. Considerable research has gone into what plants would have been available to the Anglo-Saxons of the local area, which has given inspiration to his recipes. Chervil comes together with juniper in this superbly textural gin. Ideal for a martini - but, please: stirred, not shaken.
