- ABV 43.1%
Based on a 70-year-old-recipe that took Tanqueray No.7 as its inspiration, Colombo No.7 was conceived at a time when many traditional botanicals were difficult to procure due to trade blockades during World War II. Alternatives were found in locally grown cinnamon, ginger and curry leaf. On working on the recreation of the original recipe, the grandson of the founder, Amal de Silva Wijeyeratne commented: “We did try to see if we could enhance it and tried adding other botanicals and spices. We tried lemon grass, turmeric, cardamom etc., but somehow we always found that more spices didn’t necessarily make it better and seemed to take it out of balance." He adds, "My grandfather was always a perfectionist, and Colombo No.7 was already perfect. We didn’t change a thing, and in about two months the gin was ready.”
The gin is presently distilled and bottled in England using a 100% grain spirit base.
