We’re proud to be part of London’s long and disreputable history of gin drinking.
Our Old Tom gin is distilled in one of our tiny copper stills, Naomi, Ruth or Cecilia, using hand-ground botanicals. Old Tom gin is a unique full-flavoured spirit with wonderful notes of orange, bay, nutmeg and vanilla.
Our second expression is a contemporary gin made from home grown rose geranium leaf, fennel seeds, lemon balm and pink grapefruit peel, alongside classic notes of juniper and coriander seed.
Many of the ingredients for our liqueurs are home-grown, or wild foraged from in and around East London and Essex. Mother’s roots are in a free rambling country childhood. She holds in her heart a firm belief that even in our city lives we need to keep alive a connection between ourselves, the land and the things we eat and drink. Our gorgeous products are an intoxicating expression of this.
Over the course of a year our fruit is steeped in gin or other high-quality base spirits, infusing them with an exceptional depth of flavour. Fabulous on their own, our liqueurs also make a unique ingredient in your own cocktail creations.
It’s not just us who think our potions are magic – Mother’s Ruin has been winning awards for many years.
