Berry Bros reveals Kingsman No.3 Gin editionBy Nicola Carruthers
British wine and spirits merchant Berry Bros & Rudd has released a limited-edition navy strength variant of its No.3 London Dry Gin to mark the release of Kingsman: The Golden Circle.
Several scenes from the new film, which stars Colin Firth, Halle Berry and Channing Tatum, were filmed at the merchant’s historic No.3 St James’s Street address and its Napoleon Cellar.
Packaged with a subtle nod to director Matthew Vaughn’s action spy film, the new expression has been bottled at 49% abv and is limited to 5,000 bottles
“The qualities needed to make a Kingsman are not dissimilar from those required of our London Dry Gin,” said creative director Geordie Willis. “Sophistication, integrity and style are paramount.”
The gin will also be available for a short time at London’s renowned Martini bar, Dukes. To celebrate the collaboration, the company has teamed up with head bartender Alessandro Palazzi to offer a pair of winners an exclusive Martini Masterclass. The winners will also receive a complimentary bottle of the limited-edition gin.
Kingsman Edition No.3 London Dry Gin is available to buy online and at the company’s recently opened store at 63 Pall Mall at an RRP of £43.
Berry Bros & Rudd isn’t the only company to celebrate the new film with a spirit – Brown-Forman unveiled a special edition Bourbon for its Old Forester brand, and the GlenDronach Distillery launched a single malt Scotch whisky called the Kingsman Edition 1991 Vintage.
