Oriental Cigar Gin is designed to be enjoyed alongside a fine cigar, although of course it is equally delicious on its own. Nick Hammond, in collaboration with luxury label Leggets, has personally blended this unique London Dry Gin to complement the nuances, shifts in flavour and characteristics of a good cigar.”

Oriental Cigar Gin?
It’s a very high-end, small batch gin, personally designed and blended by me to go with a fine cigar and – even if I do say so myself! – it’s really good.
The early batch has flown out and the response has been very gratifying; Independent Drinks Specialists rated it at an incredible 92pts, saying “Discreet nose with some floral and spicy notes rising first. Bold on the palate with distinct sweetness and some sweet spicy tobacco-like notes and a long, warming finish. It is extraordinarily complex with a great delivery. It is naturally a great choice with cigars. A must-have for gin aficionados and cigar smokers, a worthy Silver or more likely a Gold medal at many big international competitions.”
