This competition has now closed.

Thomas Dakin Gin is a classic style London Dry Gin which takes its name from the forefather of English gin, Thomas Dakin, who created the world’s first quality gin in 1761 in the North West of England.

Thomas Dakin was a pioneer and began distilling at the age of 25. This new gin, named in honour of the young innovator, was launched in Manchester & London in July 2015.

Thomas Dakin Gin is distilled in small batches in a baby copper pot still. The Master Distiller uses a secret recipe of eleven botanicals, including some traditionally used for making cordials in the 18th Century, as well as juniper, orange peel and English coriander with the unique addition of red cole to give the gin its long, lingering finish. Horseradish, or red cole as it was known in Dakin’s day, was used to revive weary travellers journeying by coach and horses from London to Scotland.


Thomas Dakin has won three Awards in its first year – a Gold Medal at The San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2016, a Gold Medal at The World Gin Awards and the award for Best On Trade Gin for its stand out behind the bar.
