Recently while picking up a bottle of wine at the Summerhill LCBO I ran into this guy doing a sampling of my favourite London dry-style gin: Broker’s Gin.
Turns out it was Andy Dawson. Andy and his brother Martin are the founders and produce Broker’s just outside of London
I discovered Broker’s while designing a cocktail, La Mugnaia, for the Spring Pickle at Secret Pickle Supper Club.
Inspired by the Battle of the Oranges in Ivrea Italy where the miller’s daughter, La Mugnaia, started a revolution.
The cocktail was a hit and the gin became an instant favourite and the house gin at the Secret Pickles.
I like the traditional flavours, complex aromatics and the cute little bowler hats.
I affectionately refer to Broker’s as: the gin that tastes like getting drunk and making out with highschool boys.
We sampled, we chatted, I purchased a bottle and got it signed.
My love affair with gin continues.
