A story of Romance and Adventure
Martin Miller had a loving relation with Gin. For him, it was and will always be the most seductive of drinks. He described it as “history, romance and adventure in a glass”.
“When creating my own Gin, I wanted to live that love, to possess the aroma of oriental flowers in the shadows, the fragrance of the orange trees in a warm Sevillian night and the refreshing whisper of the winter wind in a birch forest,” said Martin.
Martin Miller and his two friends, appalled by the lack of quality gin and wanting to encourage a younger group of consumers into the gin fold, set off on a quest for the best gin possible, sparing no expense. To achieve this juniper needed to be tamed, without compromising the traditional character of gin. In 1999, Martin Miller’s gin became the first modern-day high-quality gin brand, thus setting off the gin renaissance.
Martin Miller’s Gin is made according to traditional style “London Dry Gin” but at the same time, incorporates its own pioneering distillation methods. Martin’s break from tradition is manifested in two separate distillations, for Juniper and botanical herbal elements, which are then mixed with a second distillation that is performed separately from the citrus elements, orange peel, lime and lemon. Martin Miller’s were the first to distil this way and it is this unique method that provides the freshness of its flavour and its unique clarity.
Martin Miller’s Gin is the only gin mixed with water from Iceland – one of the purest waters in the world – and it is key to the exceptional characteristics of this gin.
With only 19 years of history, it is one of the most awarded gins in the world. It remains the highest scoring Gin by the BTI in the US with 97 points. Click here for a full list of awards.
