Williams Great British Extra Dry reaches UK

14 November, 2012

Chase Distillery’s new super-premium gin, Williams Great British Extra Dry, has reached the UK market.

As reported on Drinksint.com in September, the gin debuted in Spain five months ago before entering France, Italy, Hong Kong, Denmark, Dubai and now the company’s home market.

The 40% abv expression is described as a “drier, spicier” gin designed to be drunk in a G&T or a  sweet Martini.

Juniper-led in taste profile, the gin's supporting botanicals are cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, bitter almond, coriander, cardamom, cloves, liquorish and lemon.

Williams Gin founder, William Chase said: “Great British Gin is the first single estate English gin to be created in over 200 years.

“Our first challenge as distillers was to create the world’s best vodka – Chase Vodka. And now we have used that as the base for the world’s finest dry gin.”

The Herefordshire-stationed distillery now produces around 115,000 nine-litre cases of spirits per week, with volume having doubled year on year.
