On the 24th of May 1948, Agnes Arber became the first woman to receive the Gold medal of the Linnean Society, a world famous institution dedicated to the study of natural history. Born in 1879, Arber achieved excellent academic results and soon became a historian of botany. By the time of her death in 1960, Arber had published an extensive library of books on both botany and philosophy.
It is with appreciation of Arber’s work that this gin has been produced, this convergence of nine botanicals distilled together. The savoury, earthy notes of juniper, coriander and angelica are complemented by the warm and spicy tones of cassia. Sweet, acidic flavours of lemon, orange and grapefruit combine with a twist of liquorice.
