Cream Gin Master of Malt Worship Street

The Worship Street Whistling Shop Cream Gin has been created in collaboration with Master of Malt

Modelled after the cream gins served in London’s gin palaces during the Victorian era, the Worship Street Whistling Shop Cream Gin is a staple ingredient in its namesake bar’s signature cocktail the Black Cat’s Martini.

A “secret combination of ingredients”, including fresh cream, have been macerated with a citrus-forward gin before being cold-distilled to remove any molecules that might degrade over time.

The process allows the spirit – which is clear – to be stored on the shelf alongside other gins, without the need for refrigeration.

Despite being clear, Master of Malt describes the 43.8% abv spirit as having a full-cream aroma and thick, rich texture with a “heavy whack of vanilla”.

The cream gin is available from Master of Malt, Selfridges and Harvey Nichols, and carries an RRP of £41.95.

According to Max Schlesinger in his book Saunterings in and about London from 1853, cream gin was a Victorian mixture of gin, cream, and sugar stored in a barrel.
