UK spirits start-up De Havilland has released its first product, a London dry gin.

De Havilland London Dry Gin is made with botanicals sourced from South Africa and the UK including juniper, aniseed and the buchu plant, a type of shrub. De Havilland was founded by Hiru Bathija, a pilot, in August and takes its name from a former UK aviation manufacturer.

A spokesperson for De Havilland told Just Drinks the company is eyeing expansion into the UK off-premise and is in talks with “a major retailer”.

Bathija said: “Having travelled all over the world, I wanted to create gin that is connected to the earth of two continents…. We want to invoke that real sense of adventure and exploration into the unknown world that those early travellers would have felt.”

Earlier this month, Kirker Greer Spirits revealed a new gin brand in the UK, Ukiyo, which means ‘floating world’ in Japanese.
