International Spirits Challenge 2012 - Trophy and Gold. No.3 is made to Berry Bros own recipe by distillers with over three centuries of experience and expertise. With Juniper at its heart, No.3 embodies the traditional character of a London Dry Gin. At 46% No.3 London Dry Gin is the ideal strength for a classic Dry Martini. Nose. Bright, crisp and fresh with an uplifting welcome of juniper. Palate. Juniper to the fore, supported by floral notes and spicy, warm cardamom. Plenty of citrus 'zing' complemented by the gingery spiciness of coriander. Finish. The earthy dryness of angelica kicks in. No. 3 London Dry Gin is made in time-honoured fashion born of 300 years of experience using traditional copper pot stills. Essential botanicals of juniper, sweet orange peel, angelica root and coriander are combined with cardamom seeds and grapefruit feel to deliver a perfectly balanced smooth, fresh London Dry Gin. Overlooking St. James's palace in the heart of London, No. 3 has been home to Berry Bros.&Rudd for more than three centuries since its foundation by the widow Bourne in 1698, during the reign of king William III. Berrys began supplying wines and spirits to the British royal family during the reign of King George III - a service that was officially recognised in 1903 when the company was awarded its first royal warrant - and it is a tradition that Berrys still proudly maintains to this day. No.3 London Dry Gin is distilled to a proprietary recipe of Berry Bros&Rudd, London's oldest wine and spirit merchant. The name No.3 refers to the address in St James's Street, London: the home of Berry Bros since 1698. Berry Bros.&Rudd currently holds Royal Warrants for H.M. The Queen and H.R.H The Prince of Wales. The Key. Origin/Location. The key on the bottle was inspired by the key to the lock in the door of The Parlour at the heart of the shop at No.3 StJames\u2019s Street. The Parlour, in many ways, is the inner sanctum of No.3 St James\u2019s Street. It is one of the oldest chambers in the shop; a room that is steeped in history and tradition. The No.3 key therefore unlocks the secrets and traditions of an extraordinary institution and symbolises our values of quality, authority and integrity.
