Fifty Eight Gin is a one man band operation, the gin distilled under a railway arch in Hackney Downs by Australian founder Mark Marmont, a former dive instructor and boat skipper, who fell in love with the cocktail industry and gin, particularly, when he moved to London in early 2007.
Fifty Eight Gin is the work of Mark Marmont, who creates the gin in Hackney Downs using a single shot distillation method with a gorgeous alembic still, 100% British wheat spirit and nine carefully 9 botanicals – juniper, coriander, lemon, pink grapefruit, vanilla, orris, cubeb pepper, bergamot and angelica.
The base of the gin is a 50% ABV wheat based spirit. This, along with the botanicals, is poured into Mark’s trusty 60 litre Portuguese Alembic pot still, and is left to steep overnight. 58 Gin is made using a “one-shot” method and Mark, dedicated to the craft as he is, makes sure that distillation is done as slowly as possible (typically six hours) to maximize the extracted flavour. The gin is then bottled at 43% ABV.
Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt
Nose: Good balance of citrus and enjoyably leafy notes. A touch of sweetness to it, too.
Palate: Quite dry, with pine-y juniper at the fore, well backed-up by citrus.
The World’s first craft beer to turn great beer into clean drinking water in the developing world.
We set off on a mission to make a great tasting craft lager to a unique recipe, sell the beer and invest 100% of our profits – every single penny – into clean water projects. This means that when you drink our beers you are providing someone who needs it with clean drinking water.
Profits from our crowdfund will be helping the Nora DohertySchool in Dedza, Malawi, to improve their access to clean water by installing solar powered water stations. This guarantees improved access to safe water in the dry season and reduce the time burden on women in the community.
With your support we will be directly improving the lives of over 2000 people. We met these people personally when we visited the area in February 2016 and we know what a difference the water stations will make.
