The East India Company Gin is a celebration of our pioneering spirit of adventure, diversity and collaboration.

An exceptional London Dry Gin is made extraordinary through the infusion of specially selected botanicals, first shared with the world through our shipping lines more than 400 years ago. Remarkable connections for a remarkable flavour.

The East India Company is intrinsically linked to Gin. In the 17th and 18th centuries London’s docklands were the epicenter of global trading. Wharfs where brimming with exotic cargos from distant lands. Rare botanicals and spices discovered on courageous voyages. The East India Company was at the heart of this activity. The ingredients traded where pivotal in the inception and evolution of London Dry Gin.

In the 1700’s Malaria was widespread. Quinine was known to combat the disease. The downside was that it tasted very bitter. To make it more palatable, British East India men would sweeten the quinine with sugar, dilute with water and then add gin which they had brought with them from Britain. The celebrated Gin and Tonic was born.
