Description
 
Bloom Gin is a superb London Dry Gin produced by Greenall's and named "Bloom" in reference to the floral nature of its botanicals: honeysuckle, pomelo and chamomile. In 2010 it was awarded a Platinum Medal at the World Spirits Competition.
BLOOM is a light and floral London Dry Gin, inspired by the true beauty of nature.

BLOOM Gin was created by Joanne Moore, one of the world's first female Gin Master Distillers at the oldest gin distillery G&J.
Chamomile, pomelo and honeysuckle were chosen as the three key botanicals, each one helping in its own unique way to create a more delicate and subtle gin drinking experience.

29 International Awards since 2008, Gold Medal - The Fifty Best Gins 2015, Silver Medal - International Wine & Spirits Challenge 2015, Bronze Medal - San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2015, Tried & True Award - Ultimate Spirits Challenge 2015, 87% Very Good - The Ultimate Spirits Challenge 2015

Bloom is a premium London Dry Gin from Greenall’s distillery portfolio. Infused with botanicals such as chamile, honeysuckle and pomelo the gin captures the uplifting sense of spring gardens.

With a history dating back to 1761, G&J Greenall has evolved from its beginnings as a cottage industry to become Britain’s second largest distillery. Today, the company produces 7mn cases of spirit annually, boasting a world-class reputation for expertise and craftsmanship. This heritage, expertise and understanding was harnessed by head distiller, Joanne Moore (still one of the few female master distillers in the world) when creating Bloom Gin. The gin is triple distilled and uses demineralised fresh spring water to reduce the spirit to a final bottling of 40% ABV.

Bloom Gin to taste…The selection of chamomile, pomelo and honeysuckle create a delicate floral balance in Bloom Gin. The orangey notes from the pomelo bring a lightness and freshness to the flavour, whilst the honeysuckle provides a rich smoothness and the chamomile adds a gentle floral softness to the gin. The use of juniper, angelica, coriander, cubeb berries round the gin and help keep it in the style of a London Dry.

Moore, both as a gin fan and distiller, is very aware of the line at which point a gin is no longer recognisable as such – Bloom may have a distinct citrus and floral mix, but is is also distinctly recognisable as gin with a clear juniper presence and is not one of those gins that have run away from their heritage. It may not be a traditional gin and is probably more suited for palettes that appreciate sweeter, more floral flavours, but it is unmistakably gin. We would recommend pouring it with soda water rather than tonic, as this really allows the flavours to sing in your glass and makes for a lovely Summer drink. Incidentally, the recommended signature G&T garnish of strawberries also works well.

Distiller Joanne Moore comments: “The honeysuckle in Bloom provides natural sweetness and warms up the chamomile, while the pomelo offers a soft sun-drenched citrus note to perfectly balance the gin, rounding out Bloom. I always loved the smell and soothing qualities of chamomile and knew it would complement the traditional notes of a good quality gin.  I draw inspiration from my daily life – relaxing with chamomile tea and envisaging an English country garden. I hope white spirit lovers around the world will enjoy Bloom Gin and its natural aromas and flavours.”
