Worship Street Whistling Shop Cream Gin – Fresh Cream

Worship-Street-Whistling-Shop-Cream-GinFresh cream is of course a prime ingredient in Cream Gin, created by Fluid Movement, the company behind revered London bars Purl and Worship Street Whistling Shop.

Modelled after the cream gins served in London’s gin palaces during the Victorian era, the bottling is “secret combination of ingredients”, including fresh cream, which have been macerated with a citrus-forward gin before being cold-distilled to remove any molecules that might degrade over time.

The Worship Street Whistling Shop Cream Gin is a staple ingredient in its namesake bar’s signature cocktail the Black Cat’s Martini.

    Since Old Tom and London Dry styles came about as a not so successful attempt to recreate genever – I say let them experiment! I know Rogue Spirits in Oregon is making a Spruce Tip Gin. Pushing the envelope should be welcomed, not shunned.

  2. Opihr Oriental Spiced Gin has unusual and exotic oriental botanicals from the Ancient Spice Route, including ginger, cumin, spicy cubeb berries from Indonesia and black pepper from India.

    And of course we shouldn’t forget the sublime mediterranean Gin Mare from Spain, with all those great botanicals like basil, thyme, rosemary and olives. Cheers! 🙂
