Opulent. Stunning. Luxurious. Words pertaining to both our Cream Gin and the Victorian Gin Palaces where this long-forgotten style of gin was first crafted. Originally a clever means of softening the edges of the harsh 1800’s spirits, gins were mixed with cream and poured directly from a barrel. In a homage to this rarest of gin styles, we’ve distilled a complex and layered gin, then hand-blended it with cream and aged it on french-oak. The result is satiny and delicate, with a warming, caramel nose. Laborious? You bet. Potentially polarising? For sure. Crème de la crème? We didn’t call it Cream Gin for nothing.
Top with Capi Spiced Cola and garnish with a lemon wedge.
Ramos Gin Fizz
This cocktail is as muscle-building as it is delicious. Rumoured to need a full twelve minutes of shaking to achieve the desired result, bars in the early 1900s hired up to thirty “shaker boys” to keep up with the demand for the Ramos. Whilst we aren’t saying it needs that complete length of time, we haven’t skimped on anything when making our Cream Gin - so don’t skimp on the shaking! Besides, one sip of the Ramos’ sweet and sour goodness is all it takes to realise it’s absolutely worth the effort.

Add ice to shaker and shake for further two minutes.
Strain into an empty highball glass.
Slowly pour in soda. If done right, the foam will lift higher than the glass.
The Sour Cream
A simple mingling of spirit, sugar and citrus, it’s hard to imagine how this almost effortless combination could possibly produce such a complex flavour profile. But it does. Our velvety smooth Cream Gin then adds a lavish touch to further enrich this classic cocktail. A Gin Sour with a Cream Gin? Well, we just had to name it The Sour Cream.
