Mix up classic cocktails with Fords & Chambord

Bartenders wanted a versatile spirit that could be used in any gin-based cocktail, no matter what ingredients the recipe called for. Simon Ford set out to create the cocktail gin based on classic gin-based cocktails – such as the Gin & Tonic, Bramble, and Martini. ​

A thoughtful mix of nine botanicals, Fords Gin starts with a traditional base of juniper & coriander seed balanced by citrus, florals and spices. Steeped for 15 hours before distillation, the botanicals deliver an aromatic, fresh and floral spirit with elegant notes of jasmine and grapefruit that creates a versatile base for any gin-inspired cocktail.

I wanted to take elements from all of my favorite gins and put them into one, well-rounded gin.
