Fifty Pounds Gin
During the reign of George II in England, 1736, the King issued an annual tax of fifty pounds to all those who wished to produce and sell gin. The levy was introduced to counteract the uncontrolled consumption of gin also known as the “gin craze” which caused a massive degradation of society. Only 2 distilleries ever agreed to pay the full fifty pounds… Either way, it gave these guys a pretty good name for their gin. Botanicals such as liquorice powder, orange and lemon peel, coriander seeds and savory herb are used to give Fifty Pounds its minty freshness and hedgerow notes.
