Berry Bros & Rudd has announced plans to revive its namesake London Dry Gin in the UK. After a four-year absence, the iteration returns to BBR's spirits portfolio, sitting below its higher-end No 3 London Dry Gin expression.

Produced for the family-owned company by Thames Distillers, BBR London Dry Gin will be available through the Fields Morris & Verdin in-house distribution arm.

"Last year, Britain's oldest wine & spirits merchant launched own-label range The Wine Merchants Range and received the International Wine Challenge awards for Own Label of the Year," BBR said today. "It seemed amiss not having an own-label gin in the range. The restoration of the Berry Bros & Rudd London Dry Gin remedies this."

Late last year, BBR raised its holding in Anchor Distilling Co in the US. The California-based unit handles the US distribution of No 3 London Dry.
