6 O'clock Gin Jekka's Edition


6 O’clock Gin have partnered with herb expert Jekka McVicar to launch Jekka’s Edition: a new edition of their London Dry Gin.

This aromatic, herbal gin is made in small batches at the family-run distillery in Thornbury, with freshly picked herbs from Jekka’s Herb Farm in Alveston delivered early in the morning and distilled with the gin on the same day. The result? “A fabulously fresh flavour with gentle herbal and floral aromas and a refreshing herb and lemon taste”, say the 6 O’clock team.

Jekka McVicar, who was crowned “the queen of herbs” by Jamie Oliver, has been growing herbs organically since 1984. She is a well- known personality in the gardening world, having won more than 60 Gold Medals for herb exhibits at RHS flower shows. She is a best-selling author and a regular guest on TV and radio gardening and cookery programmes.

Jekka says, “It was an opportunity I couldn’t miss. The distillery is just down the road from my farm and the 6 O’clock team are as knowledgeable and passionate about gin as I am about herbs. I knew together we would create something really special. The herbs are all picked and delivered early, ready for distillation on the same day, so the resulting aromatic dry gin has a fabulously fresh herbal flavour. I’d recommend adding a sprig of mint as the final touch for a truly delicious G&T!”

The 40% ABV Jekka’s Edition 6 O’clock Gin is available in 70cl bottles, priced at £38. It’s available from a variety of artisan spirit stockists, or directly from www.6oclockgin.com.
