Fordington Gin is a new contemporary gin, locally made in Dorchester. Ros Nelmes uses a London dry gin base, adding a special magical twist inspired by the absinthe botanicals. She works with wormwood, lemon balm, star anise, aniseed and spices to create a light yet refreshing gin with a distinctive flavour. As a keen gin drinker for many years, Ros found she couldn’t always get a proper G&T so she set out to make one – and is now enjoying bringing the true joys of gin drinking to a wider audience. Ros offers gin talks, tasting and tea parties and runs fundraising events.
