Combining Peruvian and British spirit traditions – and after plenty of experimentation – distiller Alexander James has created a London Dry gin made on a base of Quebranta grapes, which have been used to produce the iconic Peruvian spirit pisco for centuries.
In fact, one of the first recorded recipes for gin, which dates back to 1495, reveals it was originally made on grapes. Having adapted a 400-litre Portuguese copper pot still called Endeavour, Alex started working on different pisco, base spirit and gin distillations. “I knew I wanted to make a London Dry gin, but why would you make a really good pisco and then get rid of all those fruity, floral notes?”
Finally, he came up with a flavour profile he was happy with. By bringing forward the juniper and balancing the pisco with botanicals, London to Lima’s first spirit – Glacier Adventure – was born.
