Award-winning gin from Daffy's

Following its launch in December 2014, Daffy's Gin has already enjoyed huge success having been named London dry gin of the year at the prestigious International Wine & Spirits Competition 2015. Daffy’s is the creation of master distiller Chris Molyneaux and his wife Mignonne and is crafted in small, single batches. Daffy’s adopts the world’s best ingredients and a distillation process close to that of a fine single malt, using an ancient copper pot still.

A gin with its roots in Scotland, Daffy’s represents its founders’ flair for adventure, taking them across the globe to source the botanicals which set this gin apart; Lebanon for mint leaves, Southern Spain for lemon peel – and not forgetting the ingredient which makes a gin a gin, with juniper from the Balkan States.

The finishing touch: a precise 43.4% bottling strength. This results in a perfect balance of strength and flavour – any stronger and the notes become too potent, any weaker and the balance and complexity is diluted. At the end of its distillation journey, Daffy’s Gin is supremely well-rounded and smooth, with a long finish and notes of citrus, spice, caramel and toffee. 

It was this essence of perfection which inspired Robert McGinnis’ beautiful bottle design – creating the Goddess of Gin, akin to the timeless beauties he previously depicted in some of history’s most iconic film posters (Breakfast at Tiffany’s, James Bond etc.).
