G.H.Q. Gin G for Country

G.H.Q. Gin
G for Country

A London dry gin distilled in a secret location in the glens of Scotland using local berries  and botanicals from and to create a treat worth waiting for.

G.H.Q. Gin is all about the taste. It’s your knee length A-line dress with puff-shoulders and peep-toe heels. It’s your navy blue victory suit with that brown trilby. It is a celebration of everything that made us great – with ice and a slice on the top.

Andree Borrel was a secret agent fighting for the allies during WW2. Code name: Prosper. She was deadly as she was cunning. Proof of this fact comes when she was asked how she would dispatch a nazi, she replied calmly “I’d thrust a pencil through his eye, and he’d deserve it”.
