Berry Bros. & Rudd's Flagship Gin Achieves Complexity Through Simplicity In Pursuit of The Perfect Dry Martini
The World's Leading Gin Expert
The vision behind the creation of No.3 London Dry Gin was simple: to create a spirit that is fundamentally true to the traditional taste of London Dry Gin. To ensure the formulation of a liquid worthy of the Berry Bros & Rudd name, Simon Berry, the incumbent chairman of the family business, procured the expertise of Dr. David Clutton. Dr. Clutton completed an industry-based PhD relating to the production of gin, and has become a leading expert and influencer in the world of gin production.
Just three fruits and three spices, collectively known as botanicals, are all that are deemed essential to the flavor of No.3 London Dry Gin. Juniper, from Italy, gives gin not only its name, but also the unmistakable gin taste of pine and lavender. Sweet Spanish orange peel provides freshness in the form of clean, crisp citrus. Grapefruit peel gives an extra zingy lift. Angelica root delivers an earthy quality and helps to keep the gin dry. Moroccan coriander seed releases a lemon flavor and a spicy, slightly peppery finish. And finally, cardamom pods add a spicy, aromatic, yet warm bite. 46% ABV

- Best Gin of the Year “In a year that was absolutely packed with exciting new gins, there was one that simply stood above the rest. Picture all the flavors you love about gin - the juniper, the herbaceousness, the little hints of citrus peel, the pepper, etc. - and concentrate them. Then remove the things you may not enjoy - the bitterness, the heat, the burn, etc. The result is the No.3 Gin.”- David Driscoll, K&L Awards, 2011
- "A harmonic balance opens in proper gin tradition with soft sweet pine, supported with clementine notes, a hint of chai and a very clean dry finish." - Anistatia Miller & Jared Brown, Museum of the American Cocktail
