Mary-Le-Bone London Dry Gin is made in the heart of London by the Pleasure Gardens Distilling Co.
On any given night in Georgian London - festivity was afoot. To find it, all you needed do was make your way to the nearest pleasure garden. One of the most famous of all was close by the Rose of Normandy Tavern on the east side of what is now Marylebone High Street. Called the Marylebone Pleasure Gardens, it was the place to see and be seen throughout the 17th and 18th centuries. Here, classical music concerts and ballets were staged just steps away from boxing matches and cock fights. Just a silver sixpence would buy you access to fireworks shows, dances, burlesques and beautiful gardens. Georgian refinement mingled with notoriety, gambling and card sharping. Society's upper echelons intersected with the lower orders in a way unthinkable in any other walk of life at the time. In this magical place, princes could (and did) happily rub shoulders with paupers. It is easy to see how this exotic blend of people and pleasure became the inspiration for the creation of Marylebone Gin.
Mary-Le-Bone London Dry Gin is made in London by the Pleasure Gardens Distilling Co., using a combination of botanicals including juniper, lime flower, lemon balm, clove, liquorice, chamomile and grapefruit.
