LONDON - This summer, Bulldog London Dry Gin, the world’s finest and most mixable gin has put together a few cocktails with London being top of mind.

The "English Garden" cocktail is a twist on the classic and the "Purple Rain" is a colorful, tasty homage to the most reliable part of London’s weather.

Multi-Award winning Bulldog London Dry Gin, housed in a charcoal grey bottle with deep purple hues and an iconic spiked collar, is an ultra-premium gin handcrafted in England. It is quadruple distilled, and infused with the taste and aromas of an exotic blend of twelve botanicals from eight countries.

Made in traditional copper pot stills and a painstaking distillation process, Bulldog London Dry Gin exudes a smooth and harmonious texture with a distinctive flavour, while seductive notes of fruit and citrus lend a refreshingly crisp character and balanced finish, rendering it the ’world’s most mixable gin’

Mixes with everything, surrenders to nothing.

Cocktails best enjoyed with lots of ice and good company.
