Bristol's History of Gin

"The Mixing & Reducing Book,” penned by Loftus and published in 1869, offers a fascinating exploration of spirits and highlights the unique character of Bristol Gin in comparison to its counterparts from Liverpool and Plymouth.

Bristol Gin, distinguished by its seasonal and involved method of production, has a rich history that was documented in various handwritten records. Today, these records are carefully preserved in Bristol's historic archives, fittingly located in a converted bonded warehouse on Smeaton Road. The records combine to provide fascinating insights into the production and trade of gin, preserving its legacy and helping us to understand the intricate processes that contribute to production and unique character of Bristol Method Gin.
