Dapper Chapper Bar: BLOOM Gin

By Adam Friday 17th Jun, 2016

This isn’t the first Gin to make the Dapper Chapper Bar this summer, and certainly won’t be the last. Chaps, next to make the cut for our Bar is BLOOM Gin.

BLOOM Gin is a gluten-free, floral London Dry Gin, inspired by nature and created by master Distiller Joanne Moore. She combined the flowers of chamomile and honeysuckle, with the citrus fruit pomelo, to make up the three main botanicals for BLOOM – each one contributing to the delicate gin drinking experience.

It’s distilled in the UK’s oldest gin distillery which has been producing fine gin since 1761 but it’s BLOOM that’s made the headlines recently. The Gin has won many awards and medals for its superior taste and quality, including a Double Gold at the prestigious San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

The Distillation BLOOM Gin is distilled in a traditional copper pot still, overseen by Master Distiller Joanne, and uses demineralised fresh spring water to reduce the spirit to a final bottling of 40% ABV.

To give you an idea of the brand’s venue partners, they’ve teamed up with the Botanist Sloane Square for the Chelsea Flower Show 2016 and are also the Official Sponsor of the Jockey Club’s Ladies’ Days at the Races until 2018. Opening next week is a new pop up bar: BLOOM Terrace at the OXO. Which will run until the end of the summer.  Sophie Bratt, Assistant Bar Manager at OXO Tower, has created six cocktails which have been inspired by the summer and nature, so look out for that!

A 70cl will set you back around £24 and stockists include Harvey Nichols Stockists: Sainsbury’s, Waitrose, Harvey Nichols and Ocado.
