Langley’s No.8 was born from a quest to create the most balanced of London Dry gins to meet the demands of a modern day, discerning palate. It promises a smooth and timeless gin to be enjoyed in good company.
Langley’s No.8 is so called because the gin’s eighth incarnation struck the perfect balance of strength, smoothness and flavour notes from the 41.7% ABV.
THE STORY OF LONDON DRY GIN
Alexander Gordon’s commitment to quality helped pave the way for better gin and other distillers soon followed suit in the 1820s and 1830s.
New distilling methods began to emerge and enabled producers to make spirits that were free of impurities. As they didn’t need sugar or other ingredients to hide the taste, gin from the 1830s onwards was much cleaner and brighter.
This new type of gin, referred to as London Dry Gin, became popular as it perfectly complemented the Victorians’ interest in healthier ways of living.
