Brockmans Gin Crosses the Pond: A Gin “Like No Other” Begins U.S. Distribution in 2014
Brockmans Gin, an ultra-premium, new style gin from the U.K., announced that it will begin U.S. distribution on Monday, February 3. Launched in England in 2009 and expanded to Switzerland & Spain in 2010, the London-based brand will hit U.S. stores for the first time next month. Breaking away from the London Dry style gin, Brockmans’ taste is derived from a unique recipe of exquisite botanicals, designed to be so smooth it can be consumed neat or over ice.
“Brockmans’ innovative flavor profile and sensual brand personality gained significant popularity among our European audience after its introduction,” remarked Bob Fowkes Director and Co-Founder of Brockmans Gin. “Our success abroad, coupled with the consistently high marks from consumers, helped us reach the conclusion that we are ready to face the challenges and opportunities that a competitive spirits market such as the U.S. offers.”
Brockmans is made with the highest quality ingredients such as angelica, coriander from Bulgaria and juniper berries sourced from Tuscany. Hand selected, this unique combination of botanicals is steeped in pure grain spirit for up to 24 hours to release their flavors. After steeping, Brockmans is distilled in a traditional copper still. Traditional gin aromas of juniper and angelica marry with the refreshing citrus flavors and the rounder top notes of blueberry and blackberry, to give the gin its refreshingly different signature taste.
